This is a medieval fortress where a future king of England was once imprisoned. It is located near the town of Elven not far from the small Breton city of Vannes which is worth a day visit as well with its ancient town center. You can take a bus from Vannes but it would be much easier to rent a car across from Vannes train station. The gate is closed for lunch so plan accordingly and be prepared to walk down a dirt road for 20-30 minutes from the front gate where you park your car near an old hunting lodge. The medieval tower is almost as high as the Chateau de Vincennes outside Paris. The castle is still in ruin but well worth taking photos. The French families love to picnic and this would be a great place to do a primitive picnic on a blanket. You could go to the open air market in Vannes on Wednesday or Saturday and find lots of tasty food to buy (baguette, cheese, crepes, roast chicken or pork, etc) then drive to the Forteresse de Largoet in less than an hour.

Only two towers, a partial third tower, part of the gatehouse, and a wall of the chapel remains but nevertheless it is impressive. There's a bit of a walk to the ruins, which would not be suitable for the infirm or the elderly. A paper guide is available that explains the ruins but it's in French! There are some stunning views of the fortress from the side opposite the partial moat, so well worth the short walk.

excellent little gem. Dropped on it by accident after a visit to the beach. Well worth the entrance fee. The keep is a must climb to get an idea of life in the era.

A very interesting and historical location with links to English history. Only one tower was open which was a disappointment. Climbing the Dungeon stairs was not for the feint hearted - pity but safe that we couldn't get to the top to see the view. A 15 minute walk from the car park through the forest on a hard track. No toilet or other facilities.
