“Once upon a time........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

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, near the entrance/exit there is a panel with a note from the owners thanking you for your visit and your contribution towards the upkeep and restoration. Snacks are available in the gift shop and parking is free. There's a great play/park area with swings, seesaws for the kids, it was excellent value for money, you can easily spend the whole afternoon here.

“Such a good place to take children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

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 of the period so a good place to brush up on French history but each room has mechanical Puss in Boots(s) to keep the kids amused The tour is guided and I am not sure if there are English ones but there is lots and lots to look at if your French is not good.Outside is a lovely formal garden, a moat with goats, an excellent play park and many fairy story tableaux. There is a maze too. Only saw a small soft drinks and ice cream type cafe. Souvenir shop
