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
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.
Best castle experience I have ever had. Was helped by the castle having a medieval event on. Despite temperamental weather, all events went ahead with an extremely well rehearsed jousting show, the most spectacular bird show in the middle of the audience and other very well presented shows. The grounds are very well preserved. Would be good with more history of the place. Very reasonable priced as well.
Amazing! A must-see!
Surprisingly fun and interesting place to visit, well preserved/restored and beautiful building. Easy parking with a short, downhill walk to the Fort. A bit more curation (information signs etc) and the place would be even better.
Very cute little castle. Free car park. Expect 15 minutes walk from car park to the castle. The view from the top is fantastic.
