History and famous characters
Built on the left bank and overlooking the village, the louis XIII style castle was completed in the 19th century. It was built by a wealthy family of industrialists living in Paris, owner of precious wood and owner of the luxury leather goods store "Prince Eugene" located on the grand boulevards in Paris. The castle served as their summer residence.
The 6 hectare park was first developed in a romantic spirit according to the designs in vogue at the time. Once the park was created, the castle was erected, with the desire for a bucolic view of each opening. This is still the case today. The walk along the alleys offers charming and varied views through groves embellished with large trees of local or more exotic species - tulip tree of virginia - ginkko biloba - Near the castle the remarkable purple beech 200 years old.
From the belvedere we have a view of the beautiful village of Breurey. In the park there is a cooler, stone construction overhung with a water tower which was used to store ice to make sorbets. A parson's vegetable garden, surrounded by stone walls with its cottage, set up again to date, a gazebo, an orchard, a summer shelter, the stables and near the large grills, the conciergerie or reception pavilion converted into upscale cottage for 4 people.
The castle of the Presle was completely renovated in 2006 by its current owners in full respect of its time. The roof was completely redone, slates that were purple were imported from Canada because they were not found in Europe. The interiors have been converted and renovated with the same respect.
The park is protected and the castle is labeled VMF (Old Houses of France) and registered with the Heritage Foundation.
