"As winter digs in across the country, I’ve been thinking of summer days in
Europe. How pleasant to be back in sunny, southern France among the vineyards
and hum of crickets, rather than trapped on our large island continent with
little prospect of a return to Europe anytime soon.

One of the highlights of my visit to that region in the summer of 2017 was the
surprising Château La Coste, an art and architecture park in the heart of
Provence, about 15 kilometres north of the university town of Aix-en-Provence.

Surprising, partly because the 600-acre enterprise was established by one
individual with no public subsidies, and an Irishman at that. Also surprising
because we’d been staying with local friends for several weeks before
discovering the park’s existence nearby while idly googling. Château La Coste’s
most delightful surprises still awaited us."
