Fodor's Review

A destination in itself, Lady Hamlyn's dazzlingly elegant castle-hotel is one of the glories of the Beaujolais, as anyone can tell with one glance at the fantastique Grand Salon. The main château's guest rooms evoke the 18th century, with many covered in historic frescoes done by a Baroque school of artists inspired by the "Grand Fabrique" (Lyon's famed brocade makers). Lodgings in La Résidence—the converted stables and carriage houses—are rustic-contemporary,

with amazing wood-beam trim and calico drapes. More spectacle awaits in the massive Salle des Gardes, which now holds the esteemed gourmet restaurant, agleam with silver candelabras, giant bouquets, and a wall-wide fireplace. Head to the beautiful stone cuvage (wine-pressing room) for the occasional wine tasting. Breakfast is extra.
