“Here, in a stately château, there Iived a widowed gentleman... and his IittIe daughter, Cinderella.”
―The Narrator describing the Château
Cinderella's Château was where Cinderella herself and her late father and mother happily once lived. Although it was once a grand and stately building, it fell into "disrepair" in the years following the death of her father, for her stepmother neglected to care for it. She preferred to squander the family fortune she inherited from her late husband on her daughters, Anastasia and Drizella.
When Cinderella married Prince Charming and became a princess, she left it and moved into the King's Castle. Major, Bruno, the mice and her bird friends also left with her. Lady Tremaine forced in place her own daughters to do all the chores instead. However, when she and Drizella were defeated once for all in the second sequel, it is very likely the château became completely abandoned, as Anastasia possibly came to live with the royal family and the Tremaine's former pet cat was left alone in faraway woods outside the kingdom.
Attic: Located in the château's highest room, this is where Cinderella used to sleep. It has a long staircase to reach it. The mice also redesigned Cinderella's late mother's dress into a more fashionable garment to fit her for the ball. They used Anastasia's discarded sash and Drizella's neglected beads in order to proceed ("Cinderelly, Cinderelly"). Later on, after realizing her identity as the mysterious maiden who danced with the prince, Lady Tremaine locks her stepdaughter in the attic to prevent her from trying on her glass slipper she left at the castle that has been brought by the Grand Duke for Cinderella and her stepsisters to try on. Fortunately, Jaq and Gus retrieves the key and she exits her room and rushes downstairs to reveal herself as the true owner of the glass slipper. It can be accessed by a minor door in the hallway, similar to the kitchen's.
Lady Tremaine's Room: This is where Lady Tremaine and Lucifer slept until the former became a maid at the end of the third film. It can be accessed by the third main door in the hallway.
Kitchen: It is where Cinderella was often found working, be it cooking or serving her stepfamily. Bruno also slept here until he was forced to left by Cinderella when he attempted to attack Lucifer. The kitchen has three bells connecting the Tremaine rooms and they used it to call Cinderella in the past. It can be accessed by a minor door in the entrance hall, similar to the attic's. At the end of the kitchen, a second door leads directly to the barn.
Drizella's Room: Where Drizella used to sleep until she became a maid in the king's castle alongside her mother at the third, final movie. Lady Tremaine rushed in and woke her up desperately to tell both her and Anastasia about the mysterious maiden who danced at the ball. It can be reached by the first main door in the hallway.
Anastasia's Room: Where Anastasia slept until she moved away to the king's castle and possibly became her stepsister's third lady-in-waiting. It is where Lady Tremaine tells her daughters about the mysterious maiden who lost one of her glass slippers at the royal ball, and she denied for the first time doing their chores. It can be accessed by the second main door in the hallway.
Music Room: Where Lady Tremaine and her daughters used to practice music. It can be accessed by a final door at the end in the hallway.
Hallway: Located on the second floor, it is where the château's upper rooms can be reached upon. While there, Lady Tremaine realized Cinderella's identity as the mysterious maiden who attended the royal ball and locked her in the attic. Lucifer also tried but failed to capture Jaq and Gus there.
Entrance Hall: It is the first place reached when entering the château by its front door. Cinderella cleans its floor in one scene ("Sing, Sweet Nightingale"). Later, Lady Tremaine breaks one of the glass slippers; Cinderella has the other one and it fits perfectly on her feet. A staircase connects both floors of the château, but it is unknown if there are more staircases aside from those leading to former Cinderella's room (the attic).
Sitting Room: This is where Anastasia and Drizella tried on the glass slipper, unsuccessfully. Jaq and Gus also retrieved the key from Lady Tremaine's pocket to set free Cinderella from the attic in which she was locked, and proceeded to help their friend to meet up with the Grand Duke so she could try the glass slipper and reveal herself as the mysterious maiden with whom the prince fell in love. It can be accessed in the entrance hall.
Garden: It faces the château. In the prologue, Cinderella's father was seen with his little daughter watching the fountain, while a younger Major drinks from it. Many pumpkins grow on its patch and it is where Cinderella met her Fairy Godmother for the first time. She created her Pumpkin Coach, turned Jaq and Gus and other mice temporarily into horses, Major into a coachman, and Bruno into a footman ("Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo"). Later, she bestowed her goddaughter a stunning ballgown with unusual yet delicate glass slippers, and sent her to the royal ball.
Farm: It is located just next the garden, and is where Major and Bruno lived until they moved away to the King's Castle. It also housed various animals like many chicken, who were fed daily by Cinderella until she also left. A well is in the center, but is uncertain if it is still functional or not. The mice enjoyed food there, and strived to be out of Lucifer's sight. The farm also can be reached by the second and final door in the kitchen.
In Cinderella, the story mostly takes place inside the château. It depicts Cinderella's daily life with her helpful animal friends and her abusive stepfamily after her father's passing. It shows her doing the chores of the house and how she's mistreated by her stepmother, her stepsisters, and Lucifer, the mischievous cat. The once-grand home has fallen into disrepair in the years following the death of Cinderella's father.
The only appearance of the château is at the last segment, An Uncommon Romance, where Anastasia falls in love with a baker, whom her mother forbids her to be with because he's not of high social status. Cinderella forgives Anastasia for all of the mean things she had done to her in the past, and Cinderella and her animal friends do everything they can to help Anastasia and the baker get together.
The château makes its last appearance in Cinderella III: A Twist in Time. At the beginning of the movie, it's shown that Cinderella's stepfamily is now stuck doing all the chores that they had forced Cinderella to do in the past. But now that Cinderella's a princess and living at the castle with her husband and father-in-law, she can't do any of the chores for them anymore. The château had also lost its upkeep since Cinderella left. It's also the place where Lady Tremaine took possession of the magic wand of the Fairy Godmother and how she turned back in time in an attempt to destroy Cinderella's happy ending.
When Lady Tremaine turned back time, the grim condition of the château went back to being nice and clean, as Cinderella was still living there at that time. The Tremaines leave the château and move into the castle and Cinderella follows them there, while the château itself is not seen for the rest of the film. Cinderella becomes the princess again and having repaired her relationship with Anastasia, she allows her moves into the castle with her, Prince Charming and the King, Lady Tremaine and Drizella move into the castle too, but are given their ultimate comeuppance by being forced to work as maids at there for their crimes. It is unknown what happens to the château afterward, although it is most likely abandoned and left to rot.
