We were looking for a place to spend a few days relaxing on arrival in France before moving to our rented house in the South. We'd never been to Lyon and knew we could get there with an easy connection from Paris, then on to Nice later. We're huge fans of Fodors Choice hotels and restaurants, especially when traveling somewhere... More

A stunning chateau, restaurant, hotel and spa, steeped in history and character. We came from Lyon and it was quite a journey, approximately 45 mins. The venue is outstanding and the food was of a very high standard. This would be a lovely place to visit and stay for a few days of luxury!

I attended a romantic wedding here. The Château was an amazing setting and background for the wedding! Anthony at the reception desk was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable of the Château and surrounding area. There was someone always available to answer any questions I had. I had a wonderful stay and would recommend my friends to stay.

A converted castle. Done very nicely but still a bit imposing. The spa was a little disappointing. The pool was nice but small and the steam room not very steamy! I would say that whilst nice, it is trying a little too hard. Overall a good experience but expensive, especially the drinks and wine.

Dear guests, We appreciate hugely your flattering and kind comment. However we regret sincerely your bad experience with the lack of warmth in your suite.

Beautiful place, brilliant service, confortable room, exactly what you can expect from Relais et Chateau. The only thing that can be really improved is the Spa which doesn't reflect the high standard of the place ( the steam room is a joke and has been probably built to tick the box 'we offer a steam room')

A blast from the past . This 13th century castle and staff brings old world to modern time. It's worth the extra time it takes to get the. The city of Lyon is a close drive to get a taste of the French culture . Don't miss it.

A converted castle awaits the visitor who takes the time to find it. A car is needed not only to get there but to explore the countryside. The food exceeds expectations as does the brilliant room decor. Sit on the expansive lawn and understand what French rural beauty is really about.
