Château de Brézé - A château of the Loire Valley

 

Classified as a historical monument and located 10 km from Saumur in France, the "Château de Brézé" welcomes you to its architectural wonders, and to its unique underground tunnels cut into the tufa.

Considered one of the most intriguing castles of the Loire, partly due to its underground fortress, discovering the castle's history will allow you to understand the bond some of the Kings of France had with it.

Built between the 11th and 19th centuries in the heart of a vineyard with an area of several dozen hectares, the castle of Brézé has belonged to the powerful and influent family of the Dreux-Brézé for centuries, before being taken over - by marriage - by the family of Colbert, descendant of the Minister of Louis XIV.
