Château de la Rivoire (Ardèche)
One of the most beautiful châteaux in Ardèche, built between 1728-1740 on the site of a 12th-century fortifications, the château has remained largely intact. It is marked by duel influences: that of the bastides of Aix and that of “folies” of Ile-de-France. It organizes a celebrated classical music festival in July and has an important impact on local tourism for a region that is devoid of major tourist attractions.
