The chateau is very popular with school groups, especially those under 10 years old so timing is everything. Fortunately we had a guide to ourselves who was happy to practice her English - yes this is a guided tour only chateau. Photos are permitted but must be without flash.

The Château de Breteuil! Is a terrific place for the whole family. The visit to the castle is informative and interesting, especially if it is the current owner doing the visit (in English)!

With its connection to Claude Perault (author of Puss in Boots, Tom Thumb , Sleeping Beauty etc) this chateau is an ideal way for adults to have a really interesting cultural day out and for the children to really enjoy all the fairy story stuff! The family had close connections to royalty and all the rooms are full of waxworks... More
