Chateau de Breze, Breze

(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
As if the pointed spires atop the carved windows weren’t romantic enough, the grounds at Chateau de Breze are also home to 29 hectares (74 acres) of vineyards. The château itself was built in the 11th century, but the only part of the structure still intact from its early days is the drawbridge. After your tour of the family home, ask to sample some of the house wines, but be careful not to drink too much before touring the fortress beneath your feet. That’s right, this castle rests on an intricate maze of tunnels that were an important component of its defense strategy in days gone by. With its steep walks and tight spaces, the underground is best toured with a clear head. Put Chateau de Breze into our Breze tourist route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Breze.

  • The one price of entry very expensive to meet 15 02 2017 alone, €11 50 with no guide, no business sense, with a few panels with numbers all small and in the dark! Tour date here, not this would probably have been even more expensive but at least you could learn and understand! Illustrations that do not always correspond to what the looks! Very little explanation. For some, a film was made and we were push outside, so we could not see everything! The price has not been down so far! When at the Castle from the top, there is practically nothing to do as much of the parts were closed to visitors. No explanations, no prospectus, nothing! On the PUB, there is a dining room that we have not seen! Perhaps part of the closed rooms? Ah yes, a ban on photographing the little to do to protect the privacy of residents. What privacy? Given the State of the pieces that appear to be abandoned! Big question? We are all disappointed at the highest point! I do not recommend!

  • Beautiful chateau and very interesting. Children loved it as they could run around moat of the Chateau in and out of the caves. 
  • The castle is superb! At Easter the tail was endless for in the end not to return and entry prices are high. But the Castle and its moat to be done!

  • Unique! Troglodytique château! Surrounded by Vineyards! A castle inside a castle! Loved it!
  • The extensive troglodytic spaces made this a particularly memorable château to visit. Well worth the 2h we spent.
  • Visiting Château de Brézé is like experiencing two different places at the same time as you have the 16th century Renaissance style castle above ground plus the underground world created to protect the owners while under siege.I love the fact that the work,which was extensive,proved unnecessary as the castle was never actually attacked! The added bonus is the on-site cave of the chateau whose wines we have sampled and enjoyed.
  • Really unusual chateaux. Loved the caves in the summer heat
  • Romantic and Amazing sunset
