I'll be back here too...

We have visited all of the Carnac sites and now here as well. The Fairy Rocks at Roche are truly the better dolmens. They are giant Megalithes and it is like being at Stonehenge... read more

We have visited all of the Carnac sites and now here as well. The Fairy Rocks at Roche are truly the better dolmens. They are giant Megalithes and it is like being at Stonehenge with all of the posts and lintels lining up against each other, instead of in a broken circular fashion at Stonehenge. We actually enjoyed La Roche-aux-Fees... More

This is one of the most impressive megalithic sites in Brittany, with multiple series of megaliths / dolmens still standing from antiquity. You are free to walk around & explore. Has a short movie overview, in French. Now you don't have to make that long drive to Carnac to view these marvels...

If you are driving around Rennes, do not hesitate to go and see this megalith. The site is small but well maintained and there is no charge for it, it is worth an outing. Take the longer way to get there and stop by the very nice city of Vitré, you will not be disappointed at all!

I highly recommend seeing this dolmen, as it appears to be in good undisturbed condition. There is a little information office at the carpark that has a free short video in various languages about the history of the site.

What a wonder to stumble upon on our tour of Bretagne. This one took a little finding with our GPS and the occasional sign giving some hint of direction. We visited midweek during spring and there was only one other car there so we had the place almost to ourselves. Signage for non-French speakers is non-existent, but if you have... More

interesting place to visit... there's some info room too with video about the rocks... but the atmosphere of the place could be deeper. now we have a car road just next to the rocks, so it cuts the feeling a lot.

One of the best preserved dolmen in France. It was amazing to walk in it and considering the weight of these rocks, the dolmen still stood tall as it used to be. While we were visiting it, it started to rain. All the tourists around the dolmen found shelter in the dolmen itself. Quite a nifty umbrella, that kept us... More

We visited La Roche Aux Fees (Fairy Rock) with our three boys (ages 8, 4 and 4) and we all thought it was excellent. The site itself is not large. Our visit lasted about 30 minutes, including the 8-minute video (Available in English and French) at the visitor centre, where a few photos and gift shop can also be found.... More

It is a grandiose site, in a similar vein to Stonhenge, but more mystique. It is easily found. We were there off season, under thundering skyes, and alone, which gave the whole experience an eerie feeling.

The sheer length of this is astonishing. A sort of Stonehenge in a line. Aesy access and easy parking.
