The night before visiting this chateau I realized the bus line stops operation in winter, therefore I rented a car and drove from Massy-Palaiseau. After a 30-minute journey I arrived this remote chateau with my wife, who is fascinated with fairly tales. We didn't visit at the right weather - there was a rainy morning and windy throughout the day.... More

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. As the lighting can be a bit dark in some of... More

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)! A maze will keep everyone entertained. There are several interesting fairy tale displays. A terrific walk to discover some magnificent trees. Also a children's park and picnic... More

A beautiful and impeccably kept family owned chateau. A guided visit is very well explained by a charming young woman and/ or the owner himself, depending on the amount of people present. The chateau has a main theme: Perrault's childrens stories. There are scenes from several done in life size wax figures and others in beautiful miniatures. During the afternoon... More

Visited Chateau de Breteuil, had a guided tour of the Chateau, wandered through the gardens, the maze, the many outbuildings filled with characters from Perault's fairy tales and saw Puss in Boots everywhere. The guide interacted with the children throughout the tour of the house, she really seemed to love her job. The chateau is privately owned, very well maintained,... More

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
