Welcome to Ripaille !


Ripaille, located between Thonon and Evian on the banks of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), is one of the most notable places of history, nature and beauty in the Haute-Savoie.
This former residence of the Dukes of Savoie, also a Carthusian monastery in the Middle-Ages, was in ruins when, in 1892, it was bought by an industrialist and art lover, Frédéric Engel-Gros. He restored the domain, including the historic buildings, the gardens and the large park.
Today, Ripaille is mainly a private domain producing a famous AOC wine.
The most interesting parts of the domain are open to visitors and lots of events are organized.
