Situated in an unspoiled environment in the heart of the Upper Chevreuse Valley Regional Nature Park, in Choisel, the Château de Breteuil was built in the 17th century, then extended in the 18th and 19th centuries, and has been lived in by the Breteuil family since 1712. Open to the public, this majestic brick and stone building is home to a masterpiece of gold work: the magnificent Teschen Table, known as the "Table of Europe", a stunning piece of furniture decorated with precious stones made by Neuber, a goldsmith at the Court of Dresden. On your tour, you will also see a wealth of other furniture, family souvenirs and historic scenes brought to life by wax figures.

Around the château, the magnificent park stretching over 75 hectares is great for romantic walks with its formal gardens, its box tree maze, its Princes garden with multiple varieties of flowers, its charming ponds and its centuries-old trees.

In the outbuildings, children will be delightful while admiring the was figures representing famous heroes of Charles Perrault's fairy tales, such as Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Tom Thumb.
