We visited here in July 2007 when we were staying in nearby Auberge des Tarraiettes near St. Paul Trois Chateaux - right now I can't recall the name of the village but it was run by a Dutch couple whom we knew. Gringan chateau was beautiful and very historic and we enjoyed the guided tour as well as wandering around... More

The Chateau is being beautifully restored and was very interesting. The views are lovely and look out over farmland and fields of lavender. When we were there they were setting up for an open air concert which would have been brilliant but we had to move on to our next stop.

Advertized in the brochure as being "the finest example of Renaissance architecture in south-east France, made famous by Madame de Sévigné" we were really tempted. Unfortunately noone mentions that this castle has been almost completely destroyed during the revolution and only rebuilt less than a 100 years ago. So it is nicely rebuilt...but rebuilt, There is almost nothing there left... More

It's a very special and unique chateau. It's built kind of a huge rock pillar and therefore seen from far away. Logically, the view on its terraces is breath taking. If you are in the region, it's a most-go. We go there regularly especially for buying wine in the domaine de montine.

This chateau has been beautifully restored and gives great insight into life there in days gone by. There are also spectacular views from the terrace.

Dominating the charming village, the castle associated with the letter-writer Madame de Sevigny has a wonderful position, fine rooms and furniture, carefully restored, knowledgeable guides. On another occasion we hope to attend open-air theatre or a concert in the courtyard.

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
