If you happen to be on holydays in Provence then we strongly recommend that you visit château La Coste which is true marvel in the region.
Chateau La Coste is where Wine, Art and Architecture come together and live in harmony, where Provence landscape expresses the most of its beauty.
To fully appreciate the château and its surroundings, we suggest you take the Art & Architecture Walk which will take approximately two hours.
At the end of your visit you should have a drink at « La Terrasse »,an outdoor café in the heart of the old domain.
You could even extend you day in the evening and then enjoy a gastronomic dinner at the Villa La Coste where Gérald Passédat has opened his new and incredibly beautiful restaurant called Louison as a tribute to Louise Bourgeois, the French sculptress famous for her spider sculptures called « Maman ».
Louison was the most beautiful and the most accomplished restaurant we ate so far this year, first in terms of architecture, but also the setting, the context and the cuisine. Every aspect of the restaurant has been so well conceived from its décor and furniture to its well-thought menu and wine list and, last but not least, its personnel that provided first-class service.
For our dinner on Thurday 17th of August, we chose the menu l'Amandier at 95 euros for an entrée, main dish and dessert, plus the usual amuse-bouche and mignardises.
Everything was top notch from the produce to the cooking, the textures to the savors.
Gérald Passédat's technique and mastery were at their full expression, especially the roasted crab with peppercorns infused with fresh mint, and the finesse of the red mullet with a broth of pig's trotter and smoked eel.
Our dishes were paired with three wines from the domain La Coste : a white « La Pente Douce », then a second white « Le Grand Vin Blanc »and finally to wrap up our meal « La Grande Bulle » a superb sparkling rosé.
The service at Louison was perfect, professional, knowledgeable, efficient, warm and welcoming.
Louison is a true gem of a restaurant, probably one of the most beautiful in the world.
