Castelré (Dutch pronunciation: [ˌkɑstəlˈreː]) is a village in the Dutch province of North Brabant. It is a part of the municipality of Baarle-Nassau, and lies some 20 km south of Breda.

Farms in Castelré.

The population of the Castelré statistical district – which includes the surrounding countryside and is officially characterized as an area of "scattered houses" – is around 140.[1]

In 2000 a millennium chapel was built at the "Kempische-driehoek" 't Groesje.

Mark that Castelré belongs to the parish of Saint-Clemens (Klemskerke), Minderhout. As Minderhout is a Belgian village in the community of Hoogstraten only a few hundred metres to the west, people are more oriented to Minderhout than to their official municipality of Baarle-Nassau, over 10 km to the east.
