I wasn't expecing such a majestic experience! The rooms are magnificient, we were even given the choice of available rooms since nobody had... More

Beautiful historic chateau. Great starting point to explore Beaujolais country. Hosts were warm and welcoming, and offered great tips and recommendations. Excellent breakfast with fresh ingredients. Delicious wine made on site.

Please do not miss le Chateau de Longsard and the du Mesnil du Buisson family owners if you are planning to visit the Beaujolais area or for that matter even if you just pass by the area. Apart from the peace and the warmth there is the convenience of such a wonderful place and friendly people, so close to the... More

Our small party enjoyed our stay at Chateau de Longsard, as well as Olivier and Alex's easy-going, affable hospitality. Our apartment in the outbuilding was squeaky clean and comfortably furnished, warm and cozy. We really enjoyed the family-style dinner with half a dozen other guests around the great table in the chateau's dining salon, accompanied by fine local wine. Loved... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying one night at the Chateau de Longsard and what a treat it was too. A truly magical place with stunning grounds, friendly owners and beautiful room overlooking the topiary and fountain. Our room was huge with four poster bed, marble fireplace and dining table with chairs, as well as two... More

Upon arriving at this lovely, old Chateau, we were greeted by the Count himself, Olivier. We promptly met his cat Sushi and Boarder Collie Pruska who gave us a very friendly welcome. We were fortunate to have Alexandra give us a tour of the Chateau describing how they found it and the work that has been done in 16 years,... More

We found this B&B by sheer luck. Driving through the French wine country outside of Lyon we stopped at a winery that wasn't really open. My wife told the retired winemaker that she was unhappy with our current accomodations and he immediately suggested Chateau de Longsard. What a wonderful find!!! We stayed two nights and our hosts Olivier and Alexandra... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tired of hotels, all the same? try Chateau Longsard, a family run bed and breakfast, 4hrs south of Paris and just north of Lyon, and only a couple of miles from a motorway exit. Suraonded by 50 acres of garden, woods, fields and vineyards. This 18th century wine estate still has the old press and winery, walk through the vineyards, have a taste of our wine and take our dogs for a walk around the estate. ... more   less
