Chateau de Breze, Breze

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. Use our Breze journey builder app to arrange your visit to Chateau de Breze and other attractions in Breze.

    We freely visited the Castle and its impressive underground! Very interesting and informative. Probably one of the best castles around Saumur, to visit absolutely!

    We took advantage of an open house and enjoyed this place very well maintained and very original. A very nice discovery! However 2 small flats 1 / the person of the home lacked strongly of smile and empathy. And an explanation very very briefly of the conduct of the visit while we were alone at home 2 / having no plan the tour route was not very visible despite it's a very nice discovery for everyone

    A truly remarkable place, with both the chateau and the underground cave systems which, over the years, have been used for everything from living space to silk worm farm. Information boards are great on detail but it could do with some background overviews explaining how the whole site worked.

    IMPORTANT! It's more expensive than you would think: their "family" offer for 36 euro's only works when the children are 14 or younger! We had to pay 52 euro's because that wasn't explained on their site... also the most interesting rooms in the Castle can only be visited when taking the guided tour, for which the tickets are even more expensive! For the rest, the castle is pretty standard except for 2 nicely restored little rooms, but the nicest thing for sure is the underground castle and the moat ... worth a visit for that, just a pity it's so damn expensive...

    Caves are great to visit. Castle itself not so impresive but worth visit anyway. With caves 3 hours minimum. Hot days take some extra cloths, 12°C in caves.

    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!
