Château de Grignan

Historic site and monument Grignan

Vignobles & Découvertes

Travel through 1000 years of history in the biggest Renaissance palace in the South East of France, fully furnished and made famous by the Marquise of Sévigné. Discover a breathtaking landscape with a 360° view over the Provence landscape, lavender fields, the Mont Ventoux and the village of Grignan, listed as an outstanding heritage site.

In the heart of the Drome, part of Provence, built on a rocky hill, the chateau of Grignan dominates the landscape. An example of the Renaissance architecture and French classic style, the building has had an eventful story.
A fortified castle mentioned as early as the 11th century, it was transformed into a luxury residence by the Adhemar family at the Renaissance. In the 17th century, the Marquise of Sévigné visits her daughter Françoise-Marguerite, who had become countess of Grignan after her marriage. The letters of the marquise to her daughter will make her famous and contribute to the reputation of the chateau. Dismantled during the French revolution, then rebuilt in the 20th century by Marie Fontaine, it has been the property of the Drome Department since 1979, who has been leading ambitious renovation and acquisitions projects.
Listed as an Heritage Site in 1993 and with a Musée de France label, the chateau of Grignan offers a journey through the art of living in different centuries. The chateau organises every summer the theatrical Night Festival and hosts different cultural events all year long.

For the Night Festival 2020, Jean-Christophe Hembert will adapt Capitaine Fracasse, by Théophile Gauthier.
