Yesterday, when coming back from Marseille(s), ( where I had an appointment with my dermatologist – Too much sun …), I had a stop at Chateau La Coste ( Don’t get confused with our Lacoste, which is the Marquis de Sade place just nearby us.
The place ( www.chateau-la-coste.com) is probably one of the best attractions for Modern Art in the South of France.
You know that in Europe Modern Art is considered a bit as snobbish but here it is mixed with many other features ( Architecture, way to live…) that anybody will be transported to heaven.
At present, we are in Winter and it is pretty empty. At the point that the reception lady proposed to give me the key for the main Exhibition as we were in regular hours and nobody was there !)
There was a special exhibition and we spent funny times inside incredible arrangements- See below the meditating lady !
We had an excellent lunch at Restaurant Tadao Ando just in the centrer, near the library. Price 48 EUR per person. A brand-new parking is just below).
Now, in Summer, I guess it is going to be quite busy. I recommend early in the morning or late before dusk ( with dinner). But be careful to arrive before the exhibition closing.
If you want to know more, I have found a good and exhautive article in Le Figaro. It is prensented here and then, if you want to know more … Google Translate will do it.
