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.

  • Good experiance but difficulty walking in places. Toilets closed and no where to get refreshments
  • A time travel in the history of the castle and the lifestyle of the troglodyte people. The highlights for me where the impressive dry pit around the castle and the troglodyte galeries and rooms (bakerie, wine rooms, silk producing and so on). That's a must see if you visit the region.
