Presentation

  The "Chapouton farm” is a special place with a long history mirrored in the outstanding view it offers. It was built in 1760 on the edge of Grignan and underwent several changes through the 18th and 19th century as it expanded. Two sons of the Chapouton family became mayors of Grignan: Dieudonné (from 1878 to 1881) and Maurice (from 1959 to 1971). In 1946, Françoise Chapouton (1925-2012), a publisher, married the famous French painter Nicolas de Staël (1914-1955) who used the farm as his summerhouse. Open to the public in 2015 as a hotel of 9 rooms, and in 2017, a new owner regained its original name of "La Ferme Chapouton." The "Chapouton farm" welcomes the bistro of Clair de la Plume (awarded "Bib Gourmand” by the Michelin guide). Visit our historic village and, depending on the season, enjoy age-old roses in May, lavenders in June and July, the summer shows at the château of Grignan throughout the summer, and the harvesting of the famous Grignan les Adhémar wine grapes in September, or the winter truffles in December.   Discover our different sites throughout the village:
