We enjoyed the visit to the castle and a nice lunch in the central area. Some of the nicest address buildings in the guide book were under renovation. The castle was a self-guided tour and was good but not great.

Well maintained, quite turisty but not overbearing. We could not find an open coffee shop on a Monday morning at 11 am - but the preceeding weeken was a local feast all over the area.

We stopped on the way from Bretagne to Ile de France, and were pleasantly surprised by this little medieval town, with its well preserved streets and castle.

Very pleasant medieval city center that you need to visit if you are in Vitré. Cobbled streets, very beautiful old houses, a castle in very good condition. Very nice for a small town.

Cobbled streets, timbered buildings, and a large chateau-like a castle. Monty pythons "bring out your dead" comes to mind. Well worth a visit.
