A few weeks ago Amir and Amy came for a visit. We rented a car and drove down to the town of Grignan to check out the lavender en route. We stopped for this photo op; Grignan is on the hill in the background.
We climbed into town to get up to the castle.
and up.... and up....
We stopped for a drink at a cafe by this statue. This is Madame de Sévigné, who was known for her letter-writing.
The castle had a real Disney-esque entrance.
The castle was built by the Adhémar family, but they ran out of money before they could complete it.
