on our way from paris to rennes by car, we went through lots of small towns. between the towns there were frequently signs for castles. we chose this one, which happened to be the chateau de lassay. it’s a 14th century fortress, one of the few that remain intact and in its original design. this one even had a working drawbridge! this is a view from the rear gardens. back then, this whole area would have been purposefully flooded. the man on the right was our emphatic guide. he pointed to which section in the english information sheet he was referring to as he spoke in french.
