Chateau de Grignan, Grignan

4.3
#1 of 6 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.

    Very nice place, visit and interesting expo. The view from the terrace is magical on the lavender fields. Beautiful! To visit the Collegiate Church down.

    Castle in pretty good shape but not the most interesting place, views from the castle are quite beautiful. The surrounding medieval town is a very pleasant walk with a few shops and restaurants.
