A weekend in Fougères provides a good overview of all the town and its surrounding areas have to offer. The first day can be spent exploring the city center, home to one of Brittany’s largest French fortified chateaus and the region’s oldest belfry. On the second day, enjoy a visit to the surrounding areas, including the Parc Floral de Haute-Bretagne and Saint-Aubin-du-Cormier, famous for its chateau and Rumignon Woods. You’ll love the department of Ille-et-Vilaine for its easy living, nature and charming Breton towns.
Planning a stay at a Campanile hotel? A week will let you discover the charms of Fougères and its surroundings. On the historical and cultural side, the medieval city of Vitré and its museum are must-sees. There are plenty of places to take a nice walk, but the grounds of the Château de Ballue are worth the detour. You can also visit the beautiful city of Laval in the nearby department of La Mayenne. A day trip is possible because Rennes isn’t far away and there you’ll find our hotel-restaurants for a peaceful stopover.
Fougères is perfect for a family stay. The city is filled with kid-friendly attractions and activities, including a 1,300 sq. m. aquatic complex. The Chênedet outdoor center, located in the Forêt de Fougères, offers plenty of entertainment in a natural setting. The area has several amusement parks and the original Enigmaparc de Janzé, blending history, adventure and puzzles, is a very faithful reflection of the region. In the evening, enjoy the comfort of your hotel and its restaurant with a menu that will please the whole family. It’s also a chance to enjoy local cuisine!
