…and meet the Marquis!

Another highlight of the trip to Yvelines was a visit to the Chateaux de Breteuil, as part of a whistle-stop tour around a number of impressive historic estates and chateaux in the area.

At the Breteuil property, we were privileged to be welcomed by the Marquis de Breteuil himself, whose personal tour – which he is happy to provide to all group visitors – includes descriptions of the wonderful collection of historic items and furnishings that have been carefully preserved. Many rooms have been turned into delightful sets representing incidents from the chateau’s illustrious past. The gardens are also impressive as are many to be found in the Yvelines region. Many thanks to Sabine Leonarduzzi for helping to host the trip.
