Chateau de Breteuil, Choisel

(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
This charming castle, Chateau de Breteuil, is located in the Chevreuse valley and is a wonderful site to spend day exploring its historical treasures and blooming gardens. Built in the 17th century, the chateau has belonged to the Marquis de Breteuil since 1712. As you wander the halls and rooms, you can view classic pieces of furniture along with 50 waxworks from the Musée Grévin. Meanwhile, the 18th century decoration includes Gobelins tapestries, royal Swedish tableware, and paintings of French kings. The masterpiece of the chateau is the "table de Teschen", encrusted with 128 precious stones.

Outside Chateau de Breteuil, you will find a collection of French and English gardens and mazes, one of which created from 1,000 box plants. If you’re looking for a bit more history, check out the rooms exhibiting the Perrault tales, which reflect everyday life of the past.

  • This was one of the highlights of our week staying in Gif-Sur-Yvette. We chose a brutally cold January day to explore the delightful grounds - will definitely return when it's warmer! 
  • Even not great cold, the visit is very nice. The grounds are beautiful, and access to the scenes of tales to warm up even without the visit to the Castle. My three year old daughter enjoyed and we also. To recommend!

  • This majestic castle lies at the end of the end of a small road. Once the test of the purchase of the ticket (person on the defensive and aggressive limit) we were able to enjoy the Park. Too bad that this same person nothing have said us what we could see in the meantime visit 14 h 30! In the stables a few scenes of tale, the labyrinth. If it's cold you can also wait inside near a fire place. Very nice, smiling and interesting guide.

  • After an overpriced visit to the garden, small wiki search suggests that the castle is still owned by the family of Breteuil. Nice way to run the castle by public/touristic money!
  • Way overpriced for just a walk on the garden while in a middle of a wedding prep. Avoid that Castle!
  • Very nice sample of the french cultural heritage. Beautifully tended gardens, excellent ideas of animation allowing children to be interested in the visit, and finally a warm and friendly welcome. Must do when you're in the area.

  • Beautiful property whose history is told to you by a sparkling guide which will delight you by his sense of humour and a thousand and one stories.

  • Very clean and beautiful castle, is well suited to children from 3 years old with animations. But the visit to the Park and Castle at 16 euro adult seems to be very expensive.
