Staying in Grignan the Chateau has to be seen. It offers splendid views over the surrounding countryside. The Chateaux had been extensively rebuilt from the picturesque ruin it had become. Excellently restored and with good written explanation of all the open rooms. The terrace built on top of the church afforded wonderful views over the countryside. The lunchtime closure rather...

The castle in Grignan is definitely worth visiting. Some well-restored rooms and lots of background information about the restoration of the place. Also, excellent 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside including Mont Ventoux.

Grignan is a pretty little village and the walk up to the Chateau is very picturesque. The Chateau is full of surprises and the view from the terrace is sensational. We were pressed for time as we were on a group tour but I would have liked to spend more time here.

If you are passing near Grignan this is worth stopping to visit. Signage is limited and if you follow GPS it will take you to the top which is kind of frowned on. We did and got away with it but the alleys are very narrow and difficult to drive. Better to park at the bottom in the public parking... More

Great chateau and a quaint village. The chateau also does evening concerts and dinners, I recommend travelers to enquire beforehand!

Whilst staying in Montelimar the receptionist at our hotel suggested that it was well worth visiting Grignan, especially its chateau. The small town itself is well worth a visit but the chateau itself was especially worth the journey. Having read with interest a brief history of the building and how it was virtually destroyed and then rebuilt at the start... More

My young children were frilled to explore the grounds and many accessible rooms of this beautiful chateau with an interesting history. The views from the terraces are stunning.

Under the open evening sky inside the castle yard, we enjoyed a satiric rendition of the comedy about Don Quixote. Wonderful scenery made this a memorable evening to be recommended if you find yourself around Montélimar this summer of 2016.

Worth a trip if you are in the area. Spectacular location and a wonderful remnant of history. Madame Sevigny's story is very interesting so try to get a tour with a guide who knows the history well.

It is a must see place; with a lot of history. I find the tour by yourself without guide is bit expensive; so I rather recommend to go for a tour visit where you will benefit much more from the visit. The outside view is outstanding; and worth a little walk.
