Visiting Grignan a Beautiful Villages for Lunch in the Drome
We often visit Grignan in the Drome Provencale, an area that falls between the Rhone River and the Alps north of the Vaucluse. Since we were last there in the summer of 2019, Grignan was added to the Plus Beaux Villages de France.
And, there is little wonder why.
Rising like an island from the plain, the village of Grignan sits proudly on a hilltop surrounded by rampart walls. There are panoramic views of the mountains and agricultural lands of the Drôme Provençal from the town. The renaissance-era Château de Grignan is like a jewel in the stone crown.
So on an overcast Sunday in January, we drove to Grignan for a walk-about and lunch at Le Poeme de Grignan Restaurant. Continue reading here for details (and photos) from their visit to this beautiful village.
