Christian Dior House & Granville

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £150.72 GBP / Adult
OverviewHide
Delve into the life of one of fashion’s most renowned designers, Christian Dior, on a visit to his childhood home in the medieval town of Grenville. Lovingly transformed into a museum, the Belle Epoque “Villa les Rhumbs” rests high atop a cliff overlooking the Channel Islands. The estate was built by a wealthy ship owner in the late 19th century and purchased by Dior’s parents in 1905. You’ll learn about the visionary’s years growing up here and how looking back he would fondly acknowledge how its architecture and landscape helped shape his fashion sense. Explore the home, soak up the views, and wander among the artfully designed winter garden. Witness some of Dior’s exquisite designs, and come to better understand his unique inspiration. After your visit, enjoy a narrated stroll through the streets of Grenville and witness “Le Roc” the gritty name given to the medieval town’s dramatic headland. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
