Chateau de Bagnols – Step back in time and experience delightful castle life
A medieval castle, complete with a moat, drawbridge and fortified towers, Chateau de Bagnols has been transformed into a serene country retreat offering exceptional gastronomic, wine and wellness experiences. Repose like royalty in grand suites in the main building, surrounded by original frescoes, canopied four-poster beds and period furniture, or opt for the stylish, contemporary suites in the former cellar.
1217, the gourmet restaurant that balances regional produce with exotic flavours, has earned Chef Jean-Alexandre Ouaratta his first Michelin star. For a more informal mix of contemporary and classic French cuisine, Le Café du Chateau is equally in demand.
Located in the heart of the Beaujolais region, there are endless wineries to visit and vintages to taste, and sommeliers are on hand to suggest ideal wine pairings at every meal. The genteel grounds include formal gardens, orchards, and an outdoor pool; indoors the sleek ESPA spa offers everything from scientifically-advanced facials to Shellac pedicures and rejuvenating massages.
