The last project of the domain a Pavilion - Auditorium by Oscar Niemeyer.
Set amongst a vineyard of Vermentino grapes, the new structure serves as an exhibition space and auditorium. Visitors start their journey via a curved, glazed elevation leading to a 380m² gallery. Adjacent to this is a 140m² cylindrical auditorium with a capacity of 80 seats.
The pavilion, with its organic, curved architecture reflects Niemeyer’s distinctive style and sits in perfect harmony with the surrounding vines and rolling Provençal hills. The striking glass façade gives the impression of the vineyard unfolding through the building, while the shallow pool at the entrance beautifully captures the interaction of light and reflection.
An authentic and welcoming place which offers guests, diners and visitors a feeling of freedom, both in their dealings with the property’s teams and when choosing from the wide range of bespoke options as they spend a day with family or friends, organise private events or host groups.
