Located between Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon National Park, in the heart of miraculously preserved nature, beats the rhythm of an eternal Provence… A landscape so dear to Cézanne. Born from the avant-garde vision of Patrick McKillen, Château La Coste is a vast estate of 200 hectares where the vines in organic farming, art and architecture express themselves freely…
Since the takeover of the Estate in 2002, all projects have been in harmony with nature and the environmental impact of our activities is minimized on a daily basis.
