Castle of Ripaille: Home of the Dukes of Savoy
Through its grandeur and history, Ripaille is one of the finest sites in the region. Built in 1434 by Duke Amadeus VIII, a Carthusian monastery in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the country house of a businessman-aesthete from 1892, the Castle de Ripaille was a centre of power and religion before being dedicated to the arts and to the «art de vivre». A visit to Ripaille revives all these histories.
A visit to Ripaille includes:
• guided visit to the former monastery, only in high season the Amadeus Room: original and unique objects from the 1400s and 1500s
• the films «Ripaille through the Ages» and «The States of Savoy»
