Villa La Coste

THE STORY: At the heart of the extraordinary Château La Coste winery, where thirty works of art by major artists and architects shine under the open skies (Louise Bourgeois, Alexandre Calder, Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano…), you’ll find the Villa La Coste. The 28 classy and luminous villa/suites (giant bay windows, transparent white curtains, light wood, marble, rough stones…) are each equipped with a terrace and views of the vineyard and the Massif du Lubéron. And some of them even have a private pool! To complete this pretty picture, there are summer concerts, insane exhibits (Ai Weiwei, etc.), five restaurants on the estate, including Louison, run by Gérald Passédat (Le Petit Nice in Marseille), and Restaurant Mallmann, spiced up Argentine celebrity chef Francis Mallmann! Naturally, this dreamy paradise comes at a price: starting at €600 a night per suite.
