Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre, Fougeres-sur-Bievre

(4.4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Originally an 11th century structure, Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre was entirely rebuilt at the end of the 15th century with only the large courtyard being preserved. Many original military facilities remained, such as ditches, cannon holes, and the wall walk, but Renaissance builders added refinements, such as a gallery, mullioned windows, and steep-sloped roofs. Builders later installed a spinning mill in the chapel during the 19th century. You can attend a guided tour in English, or explore the castle unaccompanied to view its keep and the fortified postern tower. Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fougeres-sur-Bievre Edition.

  • Located in a small town, a little away from the castles of the Loire, but worth it. Very little furniture and room a bit abandoned but to see it anyway, not for the attic. Nice little garden. The tour begins with a short presentation made by the guide.

  • It was cold on the day of our visit and we arrived shortly before closing. We were the only visitors. After buying our tickets, the cashier told us that a guide will lead us at the beginning of the visit. We were expecting a quick introduction to the site. And no, this guide has nothing explained on the Castle, it's a shame, it could have been a little more expansive. It's a beautiful medieval castle, it is almost not furnished and not heated. A few signs along the visit comment on parts. Questionnaire for children agreed to our 8 year old but is too complicated for children. A small medieval garden complete the visit.

  • Mix of medieval and renaissance, this little castle on the border of Touraine and the Sologne, merit a visit by its charm and its remarkable conservation status. Hospitality is more friendly.

  • Small castle, not the most impressive among the Loire castles. But the place is less tourisic, more quiet.
  • Medieval castle, in the middle of the castles of the Loire. Great framing. The staff is nice and the price of the very reasonable access.

  • Well-restored Castle, authentic and makes time travel

  • Nice to discover at all levels. Both the architecture that finishes at various stages. A characteristic wood is used for model both for roofing for the walls. Half-timbered walls. Decoration very sketchy but for this House which has a historical past, first castle and then after the revolution, manufactures of textiles for a large Parisian House, c is simply pleasant to dive back into his history.
