Set within the rolling hills of the Beaujolais wine region, the legendary Contiki Château special stay has been wowing travelers for decades. And the best part? It’s exclusively for you.

For countless golden summers our travelers have been feeling like royalty as they gaze out of the palatial windows. And now, after a new luxe refurb, this place is looking even better than ever. From the luxe bar to the elegant new bedrooms, our Château is the perfect backdrop to long summer days lounging by the pool, capped off with French feasts, local wine and dancing the night away in ‘La Cave.’

How to spend a day at the Chateau

Morning

Bonjour Beaujolais! Wake up at 9 and hop to the fancy new bathrooms to grab a shower. The sun’s out already, illuminating the vineyards. There are all sorts of options at the breakfast buffet, but a pan au chocolat and a coffee is an unbeatable combo. Then it’s time for a light yoga class on the lawns at the front of the Château, as you feel your worries melt away...

Lunch

Venture out into the vibrant vineyards as the sun beats down, heading into the surrounding countryside. Find a perfect picnic spot and stop for lunch: baguettes, cheese, grapes – and a small glass of wine; this is France, after all. Back at the Château jump straight into the pool! Anyone for volleyball?

Afternoon

Take a long shower in the brand new bathrooms, followed by a freshen up in the luxe new powder room. Ooh La La.

Evening

After a cheeky pre-dinner cocktail at the bar, it’s time for the group feast, cassoulet: a local speciality with sausages, beans and confit (washed down with some Beaujolais wine, naturally). Then it’s time to get your dancing shoes on, as you boogie the night away in the legendary La Cave. Fancy doing it all over again tomorrow?

Brian Brennan, Chateau interior designer

“French luxury meets Contiki fun in this redesign. I used vintage pieces to bring old world wrench charm, and mixed them with bright colors to bring it to the 21st century.”
