This is best seen from the park which is above it. The view is easier to see, especially if you are not able to walk about much. The park itself is lovely and you can enjoy a baguette, some wine and relaxation, plus lots of flowers to see.

We visited on our way from Mont Saint Michel back to Paris. Arrived just after opening on a Sunday morning. Not many visitors at this time. Plenty of towers and walls to explore and views to be seen. We did not use the audio guide (free) but I would imagine it would add plenty of detail to what you are... More

Having mobility issues we are always looking at places I can access easily and this did not disappoint. Although the free public car is some way away. We managed to park outside and on a Saturday too. The castle has a wheelchair accessible lift to the ground floor. So you can see the exhibition and use the ladies. All in... More

If you like your castles brooding and formidable this is for you. This is no wishy washy genteel chateau it is a serious castle built for defense . Now just a ruin there are innovative light shows on the walls explaining the history unfortunately all in French but there is a good audio guide which does throw some light on... More

Chateau de Fougeres was a risk - the photos made it look like a real-live medieval fortress (complete with barbican, moat, completely-intact battlements...really) in the middle of this mid-sized Western Brittany town, only 40 km from Mont St. Michel. we gambled that it might be something like that...and in reality it was so much more. Nearly completely intact, with access... More

We loved our visit to the chateau. It has stunning views from the ramparts. It is well preserved and very interesting. It would interest all age groups, well worth a visit

The town Fougere is another old medieval town with old feel character. Worth visiting if you are in the area. The chateau stands really majestic. We were short on time and did not go inside.
