Lock Poker pros from throughout Europe and North America had something to be excited about this week as they were treated to exclusive use of a centuries old French castle just outside of Lyon.

“There are going to be many more of these events upcoming,” Lock CEO Jennifer Larson told the nearly 50 guests in attendance.  “We are all a family and you are all going to get a taste of the Lock treatment.”

The Gambling911.com crew was also invited to stay at the fabulous Chateau de Bagnols castle. 

Château de Bagnols is the finest five-star deluxe château hotel in France and is regarded by many as the finest vineyard chateau hotel in the world. Discovered by Lady Hamlyn in 1987 in a derelict state, she painstakingly restored the château with much energy and vision, to its former glory, revealing Renaissance wall and ceiling paintings created during the château's finest period when nearby Lyon was one of Europe's great Renaissance cities.

Dating from the 13th century, the chateau features impressive towers, the original dry moat, honey-coloured stone known as pierres dorées and a dramatic entrance across a drawbridge. The Château de Bagnols is one of France's major historic monuments as well as a unique luxury hotel with 21 of the most superb rooms and suites in France.

Château de Bagnols is set among vineyards, forests and green hills in the heart of the beautiful Beaujolais countryside in south-east France, just 17 miles from Lyon which has an international airport. A train from Paris or Geneva takes only two hours and the ski slopes of the Alps are a 90-minute drive away.

Over and over again, we heard what an amazing experience each of the poker pros in attendance had over these past three days.
