Eat & Drink
An enormous Gothic fireplace and royal coat of arms set the tone in La Salle des Gardes, Chateau de Bagnols' impressively grand dining room. This gastronomic restaurant is an out-and-out winner: expect excellent local charcuterie, freshly caught river fish, to-die-for desserts and a wonderful selection of cheeses. The Bresse chicken with potato tarte tatin is a favourite.
Buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am.
Available 24 hours a day.
See & Do
Lie by the pool, stroll through Bagnols itself and relax in the village square with a bottle of local Beaujolais. Pamper yourselves with a massage, body or facial treatment, all bookable at Château de Bagnols.
Burgundy is the gastronomic heart of France, so do some tastings at local vineyards, nibble at local delis and surreptitiously loosen your belt. Spend a day in the cobbled streets of nearby Lyon, with its medieval Vieille Ville (old town), Renaissance mansions and hilltop cathedral.
