Chateau de Grignan, Grignan

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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 interesting visit of a well maintained Castle. Furniture and beautiful paintings. Impressive view from the terrace on the surroundings and the Mont Ventoux. We expect that open the 2nd floor to visit the apartments of Ms. de Sévigné...
