Chateau de Bagnols

Listed under Best Hotels in Rhone-Alps, France.

Pin It

Restored by Lady Hamlyn, now a Von Essen hotel, this deluxe venue is also an important historic monument, and makes an impressive venue for weddings or private parties as well as a romantic setting for couples. Dine in the glittering Salle des Gardes or under 100-year-old lime trees on the terrace, with Beaujolais spread out below. Sleep in gorgeous period-furnished bedrooms with Renaissance wall paintings. Spoiling and dramatically different.
