A must if you're in the area. And just €2 to visit the gardens and outside ...it's stunning, one of the most beautiful visits I've been on. The views are amazing.

Every year the chateau hosts a summer season of theatrical performances staged in the front courtyard with the facade as a backdrop. It's a magical atmosphere as the sun goes down over the surrounding countryside. This year's production was Lorca's 'Blood Wedding'. Music, choreography and...More

Like a castle out of a storybook, the Chateau de Grignan rises up from its surrounding village on a hill, giving it sweeping views over the surrounding countryside (which is filled with lavender fields). I didn’t have time to go inside the castle itself, even...More

Combined with a walk around the village of Grignan, a visit to this chateau makes for good day trip if you are in the area. The chateau is a work in progress, but that is a great focus for one’s visit. From its earliest history,...More

We visited the castle set atop a hill overlooking the medieval village of Grignan. The facade is very impressive and the sandstone is quite pristine given the age of the building. Recent sandblasting meant the building was very, very bright in the sunshine. Sunglasses a...More

It's seems odd that after 3 visits to the area over the past 10 years, including one that had us 3 nights in the village itself, we never toured the Chateau. It's worth it.
