We have just learnt that at the moment the storyteller at Bretueil Castle is not dressed in costume due to sanitary conditions.

We expected to see the storyteller dressed as shown on the site but she was in jeans and sweater. Disappointing

We too are disappointed if from now on the storytelling tours are no longer costumed. We'll ask the castle what the situation is.
To be continued.
