This 12th century castle towers over the Leuger Valley. It is a relic of Britanny’s feudal times. Though it has changed hands over the centuries, and was even dismantled completely in 1622, it is now owned by descendants of the original builders (House of Coëtmen-Penthièvre): Count and Countess Bertrand de Rougé.
Its highlights are:
- The two towers
- The two metre thick keep
- The magnificent view of the countryside
The castle is frequently used in location filming for movies.
- There is a restaurant, Le Plage, close to the castle.
- EUR 2.5 for kids
- EUR 4 for adults in groups
- You’ll have to drive to here.

Great ruined chateau visit, complete with resident goats that can be seen wandering the highest points looking for the tastiest grass. Good guide pamphlet given at start. Kids loved climbing on the ruins and finding secret passageways. Well worth a visit.
Sometimes it's nice to go to see a historic building without being ushered round like cattle . I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and look forward to returning to see the progress as it is slowly rebuilt . That doesn't happen in the UK now does it. Beautiful forest setting
A proper ruined castle in the heart of Brittany. It sits by a river in a wooded valley. We visited the creperie opposite which gives the chance for a unrushed lunch and a lovely calm view.
It's a ruin and not so well preserved but it's an interesting one since it has quite a complex architecture and layout. €5 entrance fee. You get a map with a plan and some comments and that's it. No markers or information boards on the buildings itself.
Brilliant but no ideal for young children
