Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • 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.
  • Romantic and Amazing sunset
  • Tasted and bought local wine!! Very interesting!!!
  • A castle with a remarkable dry moat that differentiates it from other nearby castles.

  • Very beautiful castle. Two visits possible: the castle on land and the Castle underground. (You can of course does both). If you have time only for a single visit, choose the (cave) underground Castle, which is an exceptional site of Brézé. We appreciate the humorous comments of the guide (Jean-Luc) that will captivate the attention of the people not fascinated by local history. One caveat however for the Organization of the home / ticketing in which lacks a large explanatory sign tours and rates. And that the current arrangement is ideal if you want to sell tickets to people who come out of the Castle...
