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.

  • For the price of a visit (11.50 euros) you visit in fact 2 castles. The castle itself (little furniture and very few parts to see the truth). A lot of astonished not to see supervisors in these places despite the world and the children running around. It must be said that we are fallen on Halloween and the waiting time is said passing, for getting our tickets was very long. We were however managed to get 3/4 hour in advance for the tour (but too late). There was only one register open... The curiosity of this castle is its under soil troglodytes. This castle has an extraordinary underground network: the largest underground fortress in Europe. You can still see the kitchens, stables carved in the tufa, the presses... Note the dry moat which are the deepest in Europe. Beautiful discovery with the Sun as an accompanying!

  • There are 2 castles here. You get an idea when you are going over the moat and look down and see the caves coming off the deep dry moat all around the castle. The main underground complex is amazing a...  more »

  • 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
