We have just been informed that the storyteller at the castle of Bretueil is not in costume at the moment due to sanitary conditions.

We expected to see the storyteller in costume as indicated on the website but she was in jeans and a sweater. Disappointing

We are also disappointed that from now on the guided tours are no longer costumed. We will ask the castle about this.
To be continued.
