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.

Great chateau. Masses of items of furniture and painting on display in beautiful condition and unusual ones some of which I have shown in my photos.
