Château de Bagnols is the finest five-star deluxe château hotel 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.

A door leads out to the ocean. At the end of the jetty, a boat awaits you. Sailing between Lorient and the island of Groix is an unforgettable experience and just one of the many pleasures in store for you at this historic castle and manor house surrounded by 120 hectares of private forest. If you aren’t much of a sailor, a helicopter flight over the cliffs of Brittany might be more your thing. Once your feet are firmly back on the ground, sample the delights of the menu of fresh seafood and Brittany’s local produce, followed by a shiatsu massage to finish off a perfect day…

Nietzsche is said to have climbed one of the steep paths in the village of Eze, toward the end of his life, and that the arduous nature of this ascent inspired him to write Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Close to the “Nietzsche path”, this Château and its breathtaking vantage point over the Mediterranean has less demanding activities in store for you: swimming a few lengths in a Roman pool in perfect harmony with nature, tennis, Indian massage and wine tasting. The great classics of French gastronomy or Mediterranean specialties will be a real treat for foodies who can enjoy stunning views from one of the hotel’s 4 restaurants
