Château de Breteuil

Posted by Olivier Lalin-

The Château de Breteuil (previously called the Château de Bevilliers) was built in the early 1600s and decorated principally in the 18th century. It is located in the Île-de-France and the département of Yvelines, France, 35 km (22 miles) to the south-west of Paris in the heart of the renowned Valley of Chevreuse. The château is set in a listed park of some 90 hectares.
The family of the Marquis de Breteuil who still lives there gave three ministers to the Kings of France.
The building compares with the Château of Dampierre-en-Yvelines by Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Like Chateau des Conde, Breteuil is a well favoured destination for a French Style wedding around Paris.
