Opulent Burgundian chateau worth splashing out on

Set against the Beaujolais countryside, Château de Bagnols is arguably the world’s finest vineyard chateau hotel. Step across the drawbridge, and you are encircled by honey coloured stone that glows in the evening light.

21 rooms and suites

Special features
Grand Burgundian bedrooms are each named after famous people who stayed in centuries past. Expect bare boards or original terracotta tiled floors, frescoed ceilings or walls, sumptuous silks and velvets and luxurious bathrooms. Each comes with a flatscreen TV and DVD/CD player and wi-fi (chargeable). Some have open fires. In-room massage treatments can be arranged.

Pillow Talk
Get that monied lady-of-the-manor feel in the Madame de Sevigny suite, with its magnificent bed and frescoed walls, or one of the more affordable Deluxe suites such as La Tour des Sentinelles.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
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.

Room service
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.
