Luxury Hotels: Chateau de Bagnols takes you back through the centuries.
Before 1987 the historical Chateau de Bagnols may have seemed unwelcoming with its cobwebs and family of crows nesting in the dark corners but after Lady Hamlyn discovered this neglected gem, she dedicated most of her waking hours to painstakingly restoring this magnificent cultural centerpiece to its former glory. These days you can forget any notion that castles are cold and dreary--try instead, warm and inviting.
Want to live like royalty? Chateau de Bagnols will transport you back in time to the days of Charles XII and the infamous de Balzac family, with modern amenities of course. Escape to the rolling hillside where this 13th-century chateau is nestled among vineyards and lush forest. Enjoy lunch on a warm summer day under 100 year old lime trees on Chateau Bagnols expansive terrace with spectacular views of the sprawling valley below. After lunch take in a hot air balloon ride or a game of golf at the course located a short 15 minutes away from the chateau. Does it get better than this?
