We went to this castle as a family and made use of the English audio guides. The family pass is really good value and it is great that the audio guides are free. Congratulations on using high quality English on the recordings which is accurate....More

The Chateau at Fougeres is well worth a visit. Audio guides are provided so you can go round at your own pace. Interesting insight into a mediaeval castle and how it's inhabitants lived. Bit of an overkill on the history of the area but worth...More

We did not have any high expectations on this cheatau, but were positively surprised. The castle was mostly ruins but the ramparts and towers were accessible. They had prepared quite a lot of multimedia shows describing the Brittany history in detail and it was very...More

Chateau or fortress...nevertheless, an impressive edifice of medieval majestry. magnificent towers and ramparts kept the invaders out and villagers safe. Great Franco architecture...good day trip from Rennes.

First, this is not in fact a "chateau" this is a fortress and one of the best in France. Lawrence of Arabia said it was the most wonderful. The towers and the rampants are impressive. Don't miss the water mill which has 4 wheels !...More

Large and impressive castle which should be on any visit to this area if you like castles at all. Plenty of towers to climb and ramparts to walk along. One of the best medieval castles around.

Nice one to visit. Surprinsingly enough it is located on the lowest part of the town, when these defending castles are generally on the highest location. It is surrounded by a river and this gave some protection against ennemies. Mostly in a state of ruin...More
