The castle of Lachassagne (château de Lachassagne) is located in the Rhône department in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region (Massif Central, France). The Domaine du Château de Lachassagne offers panoramic views of the Saône river plain.

It was built in 1830 on the ruins of a medieval castle by the family of Rochechouart de Mortemart, whose arms adorn the facade. The building has a long wine-growing tradition since the vineyard, the vatting and the cellars were fitted out and developed in 1777. Today, the estate is still devoted to the wine production.

The site of the Château de LACHASSAGNE estate is exceptional! 40 km north of Lyon, in the heart of Beaujolais des Pierres Dorées, the property overlooks the Saône plain and enjoys a panoramic view.
