The French Art de Vivre in Beaujolais region
Nestled between Lyon and Macon, the gastronomic capital of Burgundy region, the Château de Pizay is the ideal place to immerse oneself in charms of the Beaujolais. The property’s configuration has remained the same since the 18th century and has progressively been surrounded by 80 hectares of vines, now one of the largest estates in the region. In front of the castle also stands a beautiful French garden designed by Le Nôtre, perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable walk at the end of the day.www.chateau-pizay.com/uk/index.php
Should it be a gourmet, oenological, relaxing, sporty or "well-being" oriented, the escape to the Château de Pizay will reveal the secrets of the French Art of Living. You’ll quickly become the master of the house! The rooms or suites are tastefully decorated. The gourmet restaurant favors local flavors and products. The dishes are accompanied by carefully selected Beaujolais and Burgundy wines are served according to your desire, in an historic room or in the main exterior courtyard. In the morning, at the time of your preference, you will enjoy the 4*-hotel breakfast ... without moderation!
The Chateau undoubtedly makes everything for your comfort and your well being by adding a spa area of 1000m2, right next to the vineyards. Farniente is also favored by the pool, or in the newly renovated contemporary lounges or simply in the heart of the castle's vineyards.
Our favorite place remains the brand new 300 m2 wine store, named oenotheque Unique in its kind, you will plunge into an initiatory journey of the wine making process through 8 elaborated but fun workshops in which you discover the basics of wine- tasting with quizzes on colour, aroma, flavour, flavour interactions, tannin, the difference between aromas and flavours, using oak barrels and the aging of wine… The last 2 workshops are entirely dedicated to the wines of the castle and give you a good opportunity to practise what you just learnt. Educational discovery and practical learnings for both amateurs and experts. You can’t find a better place to become a great oenologist! Not tempted yet?
