Chateau de Cruix, Beaujolais Wine Region, France
Last Updated: 18th Jun 2013
Many of Contiki’s Concept/Budget Tours stay in the Chateau. If the Chateau is unavailable, tours stay in the nearby region or city of Lyon while some Time Out/Superior/Hotel Tours and Camping Tours also visit the Chateau for Wine Tasting.
The Chateau’s pool is great for a hot summer’s day. Chill out, relax and soak up the sun. The French have very tight restrictions on operating swimming pools and at various times of the year the pool may be closed due to these extremely stringent regulations.
Picnic at ‘the top of the world’
Tours staying at The Chateau for two nights have an included lunch of fresh French style foods and with the recommendation being that they take this lunch on a stroll through the hills and vineyards to the ‘top of the world’ – a small hill providing a panoramic view of the beautiful local countryside.
One of the highlights of staying or visiting the Chateau is the included wine tasting hosted by Contiki’s resident experts.
Take a stroll to or perhaps stop off at the local town of Thieze for an ice cream, a baguette or maybe even a wine or two for a taste of a true French country town.
Every few nights the seemingly ancient sub-terranean cellar of the Chateau is transformed into a pumping bar with a huge sound system, dance floor and bar. ‘The Cave’ (as it is fondly known) is often home to some legendary theme paries and is often a place where travllers can really break the ice with their tour companions as well as those on other tours.

Can anyone tell me the exact location or address of the Chateau please?
Is my trip included staying in chateau? My trip is Euro Discovery-Winter (13days)
The Chateau was the BEST part of the trip. I would reccomend going on Contiki just to go to there. The area is so beautiful and the building itself is just gorgeous. The picnic was so lovely, the foods they pack for you are delicious! I wish the Chateau was a hotel so I could go and stay there again. Contikiers are very lucky to have this place!
i loved staying at the chateau it was just beautiful the cave went off very full of energy and the walk to the top of the world nearly killed us all but beautiful views. we had the most relaxing day just sitting on the grass drinking the famous red and relaxing. i loved amber one of the cooks she was full of fun and life. i am for sure going back to visit one day
