The Space

Welcome to our beautiful home in the heart of the Beaujolais. This beautiful small chateau has 7 bedrooms 7 and 1 dorm complementing a large kitchen-dining room, dining room, sitting room, and billiards (6') room on the ground floor. The main rooms are all South facing with large windows on the first floor and French doors on the ground floor. Until recently it was our home so you will find it very well equipped: from the Aga in the kitchen to the high speed fibreoptic internet; Jotul and Clearview woodburning stoves; dual purpose Viessmann solar panels that heat the hotwater in the house and the swimming pool down to details like French Scrabble and a well stocked herb and spice drawer! The private garden and 11m heated salt-water pool give you panoramic views over vineyards and rolling hills, 150km to Mont Blanc and the Alps on a clear day in the East and the Monts du Tarare in the West.
Moiré is a small village in the South of the Beaujolais, in an area known as Les Pierres d'Orées, a warm honey coloured limestone with which most of the buildings in the area are built. 35 km from Lyon, it is an ideal base from which to explore as well as being an idyllic spot in which to relax. Villefranche-sur-Saône (access A6) with its fabulous covered food market is 14 km North.
The neighbouring villages include Bagnols with its world renowned château hotel and Oingt, a medieval hill-top village recently classified as one of France’s most beautiful villages. The local market town, Le Bois d’Oingt (3 km) has shops, doctor, vet, bank, post office and a market every Tuesday morning.
Wine tasting is available in the 16th century cellar opposite the chateau, or at any of the 6 other winemakers in the village, locally in the area and at world famous vineyards further up the road in Burgundy.
There are numerous restaurants nearby, our favourites are Le Vieux Moulin (Alix) for quality traditional cuisine; L’Auberge du Château (Bully) for great modern cuisine and L’Auberge Chatoux Fleuri, genuine rustic cuisine on the Col du Chatoux. There are many 1 to 3* Michelin starred restaurants within easy driving distance.
Road and off-road cycling, walking, galleries, music festivals, golf and skiing (Chalmazel 2 h, the Jura and the Alps are all feasible for day trips) are here to be enjoyed.

  • Our family of 15 had a memorable stay at the Chateau. We are a rowdy group, and the house was large enough to accommodate the big group and provide ample privacy for all. The surroundings are beautiful and the wine you can buy from the neighbours yummy! In addition, Domenique prepared a fabulous dinner for us the first night arrived and it was fabulous French fare! We played soccer (futbol) down the street in the sports court down the street almost every night so bring a ball! Our favorite excursions were Annecy, Lyon, Perouges, and a wine tour.

  • My colleagues and I had a truly magnificent time at the chateau. The premises is very large, which makes it possible to enjoy time together (in the great kitchen, dining room or saloon) but also to spend some time alone in the garden or one of the very nice bed rooms. I would highly recommend staying here for a week to relax and enjoy France. The surroundings are beautiful and the wine you can buy from the neighbours delicious.

    The chateau is clean, the kitchen well equipped, there are a lot of bath rooms and the wifi works fine! I would recommend bringing a football and basketball since there is a public courts at walking distance.
