Beautiful, lonely place
Jun 2019 • Family
Fortified town amid vast marshes, very quiet, thought-provoking. It's not a theme park, there's not many cars, just old walls and buildings. Wonderful place.

Old fort with Canadian ties
Jul 2019 • Couples
A lot of French Canadians left for New France with Champlain from here. There is an exhibit in the church worth seeing. The fort itself is located in the midst of fields. People still call it home. So nice to see a place that isn t a tourist ghost town. The tourism office has little genealogical info, so make sure you do that kind of research before you get here. For example, we had the lot number where the ancestor had his house, but the tourism office was mystified as to where that might be. There are some nice restaurants and it is easy to spend a pleasant day here.

Lovely little town inside its remparts, another Vauban gem. Interesting place to wander around and there are now lots of little bars and resaurants to cater for all the tourists and locals

Pleasant stroll round the ramparts
Sep 2018 • Couples
Went here as a stop on our journey South. It is approached along small winding roads but is certainly worth going.
The citadels is more or less intact although in the French way parts have been rebuilt. The ramparts are good to stroll around giving good views across the countryside and inside of the citadel.
The inside has lots of art/craft shops and restaurants plus a church and cycle museum, the later like much was closed as September is out of season

Historic gem, not to be missed.
Jul 2018 • Couples
What a lovely, fascinating place to visit. Walk around the ramparts at your own pace? Information panels (in French and English) explain the history. There are a few shops and cafe/bar/restaurants but it is almost devoid of traffic and really peaceful. We ate an excellent lunch at Le Champlain, rue de Quebec.

Historic jewel
Jun 2018 • Couples
Great place with massive history attached.
The walk along the Ramparts alone is worth the drive there.
Nice assortment off shops and restaurants to make it a pleasant afternoon outing.

Good afternoon out,
Jun 2018 • Friends
Enjoyed visiting this place, good shops under the arches with a range of interesting products. Good restaurant, la Belle Époque for a light lunch and nice walk round the ramparts which wouldn’t of been suitable for disabled and rather dangerous for young children as it had sheer drops along the walls.

Probably the prettiest town in the area
Aug 2017 • Family
Lovely little town to visit on an evening. Sleepy but very pretty. A couple of quiet restaurants. Shame about the local lad blasting out music wherever we went. Maybe he doesn't like tourists?!

A very pretty town that used to be on the coast.
Aug 2017 • Family
This is the first time I have been to Brouage for some years. It is a pretty town that has benefited from recent investment. It is a walled town and you can walk the walls in parts. It is no longer on the coast but that is no problem.
There are pretty restaurants down the cobbled high street that all looked good and busy.
At the bottom of the high street is the village that houses the artisan houses. There are some nice things for sale and some cute clothes and toys for children.
It takes about two or three hours to explore or longer if you want to include lunch. It is well worth a visit.

Interesting historic walled town
Jun 2017 • Couples
Good rampart walk around the town giving fine views over the surrounding countryside and giving great opportunities for bird watching especially for buzzards and kites. The military buildings still exist and the church has a good exhibition showing the towns historical links to early settlers in Canada. Also some very interesting craft and art shops.
