A vision of Italy at the gates of Lyon
In 1632, the painter Pietro Ricchi, just arrived from Tuscany, here realised an astonishingly varied decor, which surpasses all those that are known in France from this period, for its quality, scale and state of conservation.
The visit to the château also allows admiration of the great carved fireplaces, the grand open staircase, a Louis XV paneled apartment with rich furnishings, and the early kitchens in working order.
A garden à la française, a park à l’anglaise
Over 30 ha, the garden à la française and the park ‘à l’anglaise’ invite a wander under the magnificient trees and afford fine views of the château and the Beaujolais hills.
