Rendez-vous at the Château of Castelnau-Bretenoux Château of Castelnau-Bretenoux 46130 Prudhomat fr

The dream castle of a 19th century opera singer

This impressive Château in Midi-Pyrénées - 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.
