Château de Bagnols is one of the finest four-star deluxe château hotels in France and is regarded by many as the finest vineyard chateau hotel in the world. Discovered by Lady Hamlyn in 1987 in a derelict state, she painstakingly restored the château with much energy and vision, to its former glory, revealing Renaissance wall and ceiling paintings created during the château‘s finest period when nearby Lyon was one of Europe‘s great Renaissance cities.
Dating from the 13th century, the chateau features impressive towers, the original dry moat, honey-coloured stone known as pierres dorées and a dramatic entrance across a drawbridge. The Château de Bagnols is one of France‘s major historic monuments as well as a unique luxury hotel with 21 of the most superb rooms and suites in France.
The design of the breathtaking bedrooms, surely the finest hotel accommodation in France, are testimony to the exceptional talents of Lady Hamlyn in restoring the chateau so fastidiously whilst creating the definitive luxury chateau hotel. The 21 bedrooms include eight apartments (six in the château itself and two in the Residence) that bear the names of those who have contributed to the château`s distinguished past: the Chambre des Seigneurs d`Oingt, the Suite des Seigneurs de Balzac, the Chambre de Madame de Sévigné and the Claude Marie Chavanais Suite. The restoration of many of these rooms has revealed the most remarkable Renaissance and 18th century wall and ceiling frescoes. The rooms, all with private bathrooms, many of which are located in the towers and therefore circular with arrow slit windows, have been furnished with exceptional care, using soft velvets and shimmering silks and complemented by rare and beautiful antiques. They also possess the very latest telecommunications system. Several of the suites have their salons in a corner tower, some with sofas which can convert into an extra bed to make a family suite. The influence of Italian Renaissance decoration can be seen in the work of the 17th-century painters, who included the most fashionable ideas in their decorative schemes: landscape panels, fanciful friezes and bold ceiling arabesques.
The Château de Bagnols, considered `The most beautiful Château in France`, is the most wonderful location in which to hold your wedding, accompanied by your family and friends. For this very special occasion, the Château will enchant you with its fairytale atmosphere and dreamy environment, providing guests with a magical wedding experience. The romance of Château de Bagnols is beyond compare. The chateau has everything needed to make the whole experience unique. Magnificent views and meticulous and personalised service. The individuality of each couple is reflected in the smallest, but most important details.
Château de Bagnols is set among vineyards, forests and green hills in the heart of the beautiful Beaujolais countryside in south-east France, just 17 miles from Lyon. A train from Paris or Geneva takes only two hours and the ski slopes of the Alps are a 90-minute drive away.
The Michelin star Salle des Gardes restaurant offers diners the most wonderful selection of regional specialities as well as an impressive selection of French wines. Outside, the sun-facing terrace, shaded by 100-year-old lime trees, provides the most spectacular view of the Beaujolais countryside.
