Beauregard is a commune in the Ain department in eastern France.

History[edit]

Beauregard takes its name from the castle built in 1290 by Gui de Chabeu on a hill overlooking the Saône and the hills of Beaujolais. The castle fell into ruin in about 1735. Restoration began in the 19th century and continues today.

A fire destroyed much of the village, and few old dwellings remain.

On 31 December 1954, Fareins-les-Beauregard was taken from Fareins and attached to Beauregard.
