Chateau de Breze, Breze

4.2
#2 of 25 in Historic Sites in Maine et Loire
Castle Historic Site
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.

  • This castle is beautiful. In him even worth it a visit? I'm not sure. However his underground is worth a visit as well as the dry moat. We had not planned to spend as much time but it was a nice discovery. The children are interested to everything and the story since then.

  • The originality of this castle lies in its underground part. Impressive moats by their depths. A long corridor that leads to a maze of underground rooms: living room, bakery, wine cellar... The upper part of the castle is more classic.

  • Is not even on the map of the castles emphasized, but is a unique cave castle, whose castle was later built over. for families with and without children a must!

  • There are great underground caves to explore which are fascinating, there is also the main Chateau to walk around. They have restored some rooms which have wonderful decorations. Well worth a visit
  • This chateau, unlike others, offers an opportunity to explore a system of underground caves used for defense and everyday living. Definitely a fun break from the norm!
  • 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.
  • Stunning castle and grounds
