Château de Castelnau-Bretenoux

The dream castle of a 19th century opera singer.

This impressive Château - as much a home as a fortified castle was the residence of a rich baronial family until 1715. Its towers, thick walls and domestic quarters illustrate its architectural development over the centuries. Towards the end of the 19th century the Château was bought and restored by opera singer Jean Mouliérat who assembled an eclectic collection of furniture, tapestries, objects of religious art.
