Chateau La Coste is an impressive art destination near Aix-en-Provence. Just like outdoor art destinations such as Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum in Japan, Kroller Muller Museum in The Netherlands, Gibbs Farm in New Zealand and Skulpturen Park in Germany there’s nothing better than walking along the work of world’s most famous artist and enjoying the nature surroundings at the same time.
Chateau La Coste operates as a vineyard where they make a variety of wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc. They asked world-famous artists to pick a spot on the enormous plot of land and let them create a piece of art. You’ll see work of Richard Serra, Frank Gehry, Tom Shannon, Alexander Calder, Yoko Ono, Louise Bourgeois and many more. The architect of the restaurant and the surrounding pavilions is Tadao Ando. Apart from the restaurant run by three-star Michelin chef Hélène Darroze, you can also visit La Terrasse, a slightly less upscale restaurant where they have a delicious ratatouille with goat cheese on the menu.
Let’s see what caught my eye during a visit in September!
