We came off a boat on the Rhône and this was one of the available tours. Reasonably easy walk to the top. The Government is doing a great job renovating the Chateau. On top of a cute French village

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.

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...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...More
