About the Museum
Chateau La Coste is an extraordinary place, as far removed from a typical Provence winery as it is possible to be. This is somewhere you can come for a good lunch, buy some high-quality wine, and also spend a couple of hours walking around the series of art works and sculptures studded around the land.
In 2004, artists and architects from around the world were invited to come to the landscape of Chateau La Coste and choose a place that ‘spoke to them’, then to create something that would take up residence there. The result is a series of intriguing art objects linked by a walking trail around the vineyards of La Coste.
Some are interactive, some are fun, some just thought-provoking. Children love it, following the map from one art piece to the next. The walk is 1-2 hours depending on how long you stop each time, the terrain is gentle hills and woods.
The centre of all this is the impressive glass and concrete cafe which itself is a work by Tadao Ando. This serves up simple but decent lunches and wines of the domaine, in a very modern setting.
Chateau La Coste is positioned between the Luberon and Aix en Provence.
