The castle of Grignan was one of the fortified castle built by the Adhemar family in XVth century. It was destroyed during the french Revolution but very well reconstructed at the end of the XIXth. Well, it is very interesting to visit it to better understand how the lords of Adhemar lived there and the role they played in this... More

We arrived at the Chateau reception to be met by an unsmiling middle aged woman with blonde hair put up ( I did look afterwards to see if she had a name tag but sadly she didn't). She neither smiled or greeted us, just asked us if we wanted to see just inside the castle or outside as well, I... More

Only parts of the castle are available to visit. Spectacular view over the whole countryside. Helpful pages describing each room are available in several languages at the entrance to each room making it unnecessary to take a guided tour.

Grignan continues to improve this already well-maintained chateua which can be visited with guide (or without). It sits on the top of a charming, full service and lively village overlooking the lavendar fields surrounding it. In summers the chateau hosts a Moliere play, outdoors, as part of the summer long string of events. Several very good restaurants, along with cafes... More

While the chateau is a 20th century restoration of a property dating back to the 11th century, it is being furnished with museum pieces from the time of Madame de Sevigne who chronicled life at the court of Louis XIV in letters to her daughter at the chateau.

Interesting visit although barely anything of the interior is dating back to the earlier days of the Chateau. Great to know that at the start of the last century, people spent their money restoring historic monuments, even if it was for their own pleasure. The terasse on top of the church - I think I have never seen this before... More

Visited this beautiful chateau in late April. We visited the museum. The local pottery should not be missed. Also met one charming lady resident and told us a bit more about the history of this chateau and to come back in June for the lavender! There were also couple of restaurants to choose from. One could also see the tower... More

A great guided tour with an excellent guide who really had a lot of passion for the chateau. There was a lot to see and lots of information available. My favourite of the chateaux of the Drome.
