Description

In the heart of the Chevreuse Valley, you’ll find the chateau de Breteuil. The Breteuil family, one of the most famous in France, have been the owners of this huge property for several generations. The current building built from white stone with pink bricks dates from the 17th century but if you look carefully you’ll occasionally spot remains from the original castle such as the dovecote, which has escaped the ravages of time.

Enchanted Stories

Adults and children will enjoy their visit to the property, brought to life by wax figures produced by the Grévin Museum. While parents can admire the clothing and costumes, the kids will be delighted with reproductions of Little and Riding Hood, Hop-o'-My-Thumb,Bluebeard and other heroes from Perrault’s fairy tales, to be found in the chateau and its outbuildings.

Extend your visit by exploring the magnificent gardens and the 75-hectare park. You’ll almost certainly meet Donkeyskin along the way… And after feeding the deer and the ducks, it’s time to lose yourself in the giant maze produced from 1000 box treesCinderella and Prince Charming can be found in the central pavilion.

An amazing and spellbinding visit for the whole family.
