Lovely small chateau, welcoming staff. Not much information in English. Great castles display with 3D and 2D presentation of lots of different castles from books, films etc. Tranquil garden, lovely and peaceful to find a shady spot to relax in. Small gift shop.

In my quest to visit the smaller, less well-known châteaux of the Loire, I heard about Fougères. It was a welcome relief from the other famous, grand and over-whelming châteaux, but no less interesting. In fact it is charmingly set in a small village, with...More
