Château de Brézé is a small, dry-moated castle located in Brézé, near Saumur in the Loire Valley, France.

The château was transformed during the 16th and the 19th centuries. The current structure is Renaissance in style yet retains medieval elements including a drawbridge and a 12th-century trogloditic basement. Today, it is the residence of descendants of the ancient lords. The château is a listed ancient monument originally dating from 1060.[1]

A range of wines are produced at the château which has 30 hectares of vineyards.[2]
