Set back on a narrow winding country road, north of Aix-en-Provence, the sprawling 200-hectare Château La Coste is a not-to-be missed attraction. Part art center, sculpture garden, winery and café, it has a wealth of architectural marvels standing side by side. Buildings were conceived by the brilliant minds of Jean Nouvel, Norman Forster, Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry and Richard Rogers. The sprawling estate, including a pine forest, is dotted with sculptures by an international group of top artists. The top-quality winery offers tastings, and at the Arts Center, designed by Tadeo Ando, visitors can gear up for their art trek with market-fresh homemade dishes. At the end of your day here, don't miss a wine-tasting and platter of charcuterie and local cheeses enjoyed in this exquisite setting.
