  • How wonderful! 200 acres where nature, luxury, and contemporary art intermingle. The discovery of the vineyards, the woods or along paths works is a real pleasure for his 5 senses. This place might even make love contemporary art to some holdouts like me! provide lunch on site.

  • To do for contemporary architecture and art lovers. Works by Louise Bourgeois, Othoniel and Calder including. Temporary exhibitions such as JR recently... Architecturally, the buildings of Tadoa Ando, Gehry, Jean Nouvel and the new Renzo Piano building. The walk takes 3 hours to be done preferably in fine weather. A vehicle is necessary to get from Aix to the Castle.

  • Amazing and lavish Winery open to contemporary art and land art. If the entrance fee seems a little high (€15. Reduced €12), it must be recognized that the presentation of the sometimes monumental works scattered throughout a hilly course in the vineyards is remarkable and well needed 2 hours of country walking to enjoy everything.

  • The gathering of big starchitect names is very impressive but hides a sad truth: the reason they were brought here was not for the quality of their contributions but to attract attention on the domaine. Despite a few mild successes, the artwork of these celebrities was laid out without any cohesive vision for the whole nor respect for the natural esthetics of the environment. Art wasn’t brought here to sublime the natural beauty or form an elegant ensemble, but because it was decided that art should be parked on this surface. The patchwork of styles and prices exerted at the entrance reinforce the impression that it was designed as a low-cost Disneyland with return on investment as only line of sight. The competing influences and styles of the startists on the property however really achieved the goal of drawing regional attention, buying with money what talent and taste couldn’t. For this reason, I wouldn’t call Chateau La Coste anything else than “the Kim Kardashian of Domaines”.
  • Fantastic outdoor display of sculptures amidst the vineyards and olive groves. A tour of the winery is well worthwhile as well as a stop in the tasting room. I highly recommend a visit.
  • Great wine, beautiful setting, friendly service. We rented a house up the road from here and visited often!
  • If you like art or wine you should totally visit this vineyard. They have an amazing art collection set up all around their property. I would recommend to set up a whole afternoon, on a good weather day to visit the whole art exhibit and then have a nice glass of wine at the end.
  • Great place to spend a day while visiting Provence. Highly recommande to start with the chais visit then lunch at one of the restaurant and end with the art walk in the beautiful vineyard. Perfect for a couple or a family.
