Brézé was one of the better sights we went to in the Loire Valley. The troglodyte dwelling under the current chateau was fun to go down into and informative about a way of life that was unfamiliar. The extremely deep dry moat was lovely to walk through. More caves were also accessible from the moat, including an old kitchen, ice house, and an enormous space that was the old winemaking and storage areas. Our kids found this chateau's sights fascinating, much more than the typical chateau with renaissance furniture and tapestries.

This castle within a castle sounds very interesting. Indeed, parts of it are fascinating. However, the visitor experience is spoilt by the lack of comprehensive information or signage.
The entry fee was Euros 11 - poor value for money.

in an area where chateaux abound picking the one(s) to visit can be challenging but the Chateau de Breze really stands out, not for what you see on the surface but for what's been excavated beneath it
with a dry moat some 18 metres deep and a whole warren of rooms both underneath the chateau and cut into the outer walls of the moat covering the whole range of living, working and storage the experience is truly unique
the main chateau building is rather disappointing as only a small part is open to visitors and what can be seen is sparsely furnished and not in a particularly good state of repair but that really isn't why you visit so it doesn't spoil the experience
if you're in the area you really should pay a visit - you won't regret it and you certainly won't have seen anything like it before

The castle is easily accesible and has free parking. It has many underground tunnels where the people have been living and even cooking and keeping animals. From the underground section you come to the towers and to the outside path around the inner side of the castle, which has been dug out in the many centuries. When we visited they had a mediveal games/tents outside the castle. Definitely worth a visit.

Sunday afternoon visit! Very interesting underground places to explore (although it's illuminated a torch would be useful)! Many old caves that were inhabited and used to the full, wine making, bread making and silk worm cultivating just to mention a few! After exploring around the moat and caves a visit indoors to view the furniture and paintings, all in all a very pleasant afternoon but don't expect to stay for the day unless you take a picnic!
