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» • the 1900 visit shows the Castle’s restoration from 1892 to 1903 and the owners’ lifestyle at that time. • visit to the medieval moats • visit to the Castle terrace
