Chateau de Grignan, Grignan

4.3
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Grignan
Chateau de Grignan was once the dwelling place of the “prettiest girl in France,” according to the 17th-century author La Fontaine. The “prettiest girl” was Francoise-Marguerite de Sevigne, and she called the chateau her home after her marriage to the Count of Grignan. She wrote to a friend that “the triumphant terrace” was her favorite part of the vast castle. Much of the chateau is indeed triumphant, with just one wall spanning 52 m (107 ft) in length between two medieval towers. Visit Marguerite's terrace to survey the surrounding landscape, or tour the interior of the castle to get an idea of how the "prettiest girl in France" once lived. Planning Grignan trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • It was raining the streets of grignan were sad. against all odds the castle was open in February. Nice because few people can take the time to read the many interesting explanations space reserve to madame de Sévigné is well done and traces of his presence in this House time. His room and his cabinet to work put us in the atmosphere of his interesting letters also all retrospective concerning the restoration of the Castle. Too bad the clouds did not see the panorama which must be beautiful under the Sun

  • We only had 40 minutes to see the Chateau before it closed for lunch but it meant that we had it to ourselves and the guides were very attentive. The views were spectacular and the interesting history...  more »
  • Magnificent Castle. We were fortunate he is frequented very little this season. We could enjoy beautiful rooms very well-preserved and beautifully furnished. The view from the terrace is stunning.

  • visit in the gardens not interesting at the moment as there are works
  • Beautiful castle, helpful staff. Worth a visit. Amazing views.
  • Amazing history.
  • Nice place to visit if you are nearby, summer has good live concerts
