American writer Henry Miller once remarked that “To know Paris is to know a great deal”. As the most visited city in the world, Paris has captivated, seduced and inspired for centuries. With an unmistakable aura of romance and mystery, your experience will commence with two nights at the most luxurious Parisian pied-à-terre, La Réserve Paris where you will find yourself in the heart of the city overlooking the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower and the Pantheon. Michel Reybier's highly distinctive urban mansion has all the elegance of a 19th century private apartment, where ultra-personalised services can be enjoyed with complete simplicity and discretion.
From Paris it is onwards south to the heart of the Provencal landscape to enjoy Villa La Coste. Arriving by private helicopter, Villa La Coste is considered one of Europe’s most exciting new destinations. Situated halfway between the historic town of Aix en Provence and the famous Luberon Nature Park, Villa La Coste is set in the heart of the biodynamic vineyard Château La Coste, an international destination for art, architecture and natural beauty. And while it may now be commonplace for hotels to boast of their art credentials, very few have those that match Château La Coste. With a photography gallery designed by famed Italian architect Renzo Piano and contributing works by artists such as Ai Weiwei, Tadao Ando, Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Liam Gillick, Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Serra and Paul Matisse (to name only a few), this experience is for those looking to truly embrace L’Art de Vivre.
