Book the Château of Champ-Renard, a jewel in the heart of the Beaujolais

Are you looking for an original place with character for the organization of a seminar near Lyon? The Château de Champ-Renard in the Beaujolais region offers an exceptional setting for your corporate events.
Located in the village of Blacé, in the heart of a beautiful vineyard, our château dating back to the 13th century has been able to preserve its historical setting while benefiting from contemporary renovations that provide all the necessary comfort and charm typical of the French way of life.

When it was built in the 13th century by the lords of Jarnioux, Champ-Renard served as a fortified house: château du Beaujolais has a drawbridge, moats, a keep and fortifications. In 1284, the château is attached to the lords of Beaujeu in order to defend the territory from enemies coming from the south and the east.

Over the centuries, the estate has known several successive lords and owners, including the Manchervets in the 15th century. When the daughter of the family, Claude, brought the château to her husband, Champ-Renard met for the first time a famous historical figure in the person of Jean Agnot, the king's squire remembered for having rescued the knight Bayard at the battle of Garigliano. The château will remain the property of the Agnot family for more than 2 centuries.

In 1765, the Marquis d'Espinay-de-Laye took over and transformed Champ-Renard into a wine estate. The future American president Thomas Jefferson, a great wine connoisseur and then ambassador of the United States, was welcomed at the estate during a stay in the region.

Later, the estate passed into the hands of merchants, notaries and various owners who made it their main or secondary residence.

It was bought in 2014 by a couple of entrepreneurs from Lyon, Fabienne Vilain and Denis Garnier, who decided to restructure the vineyard and completely renovate the venues to be able to host events.

Privatize our meeting spaces, but also our private lounges and our 19th century park and combine work and pleasure. You will be received by the owners and their team as distinguished guests for a memorable moment.
The privatization of venues includes the access to our meeting rooms, but also to our park of 1,6 hectares and its hundred-year-old Charmille. In total, no less than 500m² of modular space can be made available to you according to your objectives.
