Fort La Latte - Review
Medieval castles don’t look more magical and mythical than this. The fort is made of pink sandstone; the view of the Emerald coast, the Channel Islands and the sea from its walls are breath-taking; it’s 14th century defence system of cannons, moats and drawbridges is still intact; the courtyard garden is perfect for picnics; and there are dungeons. It’s been the site of many a film-shooting.
Furthermore, the walk up to the castle from either Sables-d’Or-les-Pins or Pléhérel Plage is highly scenic in itself. Artists and scientists alike are in love with the moorlands around the castle. Birdies can train their binoculars on over 700 different species that come to nest here annually. You can also climb the historically important Cap Frehel lighthouse.

Fort La Latte, Dinan Reviews
Really enjoyed our visit. The fort is a five minute walk from the car park, down a stony track. The fort is really impressive to see on the approach. There is lots to see: plenty of places to investigate and climb up. The tower gives stunning views of the surrounding sea and land. You can even climb even higher, up a slightly tricky staircase to the top of a roof. In all, well worth the trip.
Historical fort in marvellous location comanding great views over the sea and inlets. Has been lovingly restored by owners and looks good. The fort is a 600m (8min) walk down a gravel track from the car park. Note that opening times vary by month of the year.
Brilliant place thoroughly enjoyed the visit it was great to see information in English. A well restored fort that gives a great insight to how it must have been years ago and.dog friendly
Very nice and well maintained fort. It is still inhabited and is very cozy. Does not have a harsh military ring to it, but is more a fortified house with a walled garden. It holds a commanding view of the surrounding sea and was apparently used to enforce customs controls.
Another beautiful place. I was just sitting there and watching the beautyaround me.
