Chateau de Breze, Breze
(4.3/5 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.

  • Very original Castle, in the sense that there are in fact 2 Castles: a "classic" surface Castle which remains friendly to visit, but especially a castle underground which is truly impressive. There are ancient remains of parts with explanatory panels to understand the life of the time. Special mention also to the moat dry, the deepest in Europe.

  • Superb visit to the castle of Brézé and its underground, the visit to the castle in him even is very fast there are very few parts to visit, what worth is a visit to the 1.5 km underground in the Castle, where you can see the "home" of the people who lived the. It's about 12 degrees in the underground, the indications in the underground are clear.

  • A must see. Hundreds of meters of tufa maze to go below the Castle, before visiting the castle itself. It's a castle in the Castle. BEAUTIFUL!.

  • 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
