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

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.
