Dating from the 13th century, the Château de Bagnols is set among vineyards, forests and green hills in the heart of the Beaujolais, in central France. The twenty-one rooms (including thirteen suites)have been painstakingly restored, revealing wall paintings created during the château's finest period when nearby Lyon was one of Europe's great Renaissance cities. Bagnols offers both the experience of being a cherished guest in historic, luxurious and relaxing surroundings, as well as an ideal venue for conferences and product launches of the most exclusive nature.
