Location

Rochemaure, between Ardèche and Rhônevalley
Rochemaure lies at the foot of the Ardèche range on the west bank of the River Rhône, opposite the picturesque town of Montélimar. The village has maintained its medieval character, with narrow streets and ancient houses. From the old town square, a narrow road leads up to the ruin of a castle, which towers over the surrounding countryside.

The Rignas house‘ is nestled in a small valley below the castle. The original part of this old farm, where silkworms were once bred, dates back to the 16th century.
