Cité radieuse-Le Corbusier , Marseille.
Classified as “Historic Monument”, the Cité radieuse registered since July, 2016 on the WORLD HERITAGE OF THE UNESCO with 16 other sites in conformance with the contribution exception of the work the architectural of Him Corbusier to the modern movement.
This is the work of Swiss architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier. The impressive building measures 165m in length, 24m in width and 56m in height and was built between 1947 and 1951. The site is reminiscent of an urban plot in the middle of a park.
The great architect’s signature graphic style brings his visual effects together with a layout which was incredible at the time. An experiment for a new “habitat system”, the Cité Radieuse has 337 apartments of 23 different types which were comfortable and modern homes for the period.
�In addition to the individual spaces there are numerous “extensions of the home” designed to encourage a new type of multi-dwelling unit: an internal street with shops, a Imbernon bookshop and publisher, bar, restaurant and hotel Le Corbusier Booking online. There’s a nursery school and gym on the top floor which became the MAMO modern art centre in June 2013. The roof terrace provides a relaxation area with a paddling pool, playground and stage sheltered by a wind breaker for outdoor shows.
The building has even been a school of thought as Le Corbusier built other Cités Radieuses based on the Marseille model in the 50s (Rezé-Nantes, Firminy, Briey and Berlin).�

Rognes village- Château Barbebelle-2017/6/17
Rognes village- Château Barbebelle-
Rognes is a pretty, historic village situated between Salon de Provence and Aix en Provence, not far from the banks of the Durance River. The origin of the village dates back to the stone-age and it was built on the slopes of the Foussa (the name of the hill). It was built, destroyed and rebuilt several times over the centuries until the terrible day in 1909 when it was almost totally destroyed by an earthquake, and later abandoned.
Today the village is peacefully nestled at the foot of the Rognes hill and you can even see some of the original streets and houses which escaped the disaster.
The main industry in Rognes has always been agriculture with the vineyards producing the AOC “Coteaux d’Aix”wine which has an excellent reputation. The cultivation of the truffle has been honoured for some years by a fair held in December.
Rognes is equally well-known for the quality of its stone which has been extracted from open-cast quarries for more than 20 centuries. This same stone has become trendy today and is often seen gracing interior design magazines or in renovated residences, town-houses or prestigious properties in Aix-en-Provence.
Famous for its wine, truffles and stone, the surrounding countryside is also beautiful to discover. Large fields, carefully cultivated or left to grow wild, small modest dwellings or beautiful bourgeois residences… there is an impression that nothing has changed here for centuries and that the tranquil life-style has always reigned.
Population : 3,500 h.
Lands cultivated by Romans, a typical château from 16th centuries, 45 hectares of vines in a preserved and authentic 300 hectares nature : Château Barbebelle is one of the oldest vineyard of Aix en Provence. It is the stronghold of the Herbeau family. An history that continues with the 4th generation: Madeleine decided to join her father to write in four hands the future of the family business. Together, they intend to continue to consolidate the reputation of home wines ( wine type: “lutte raisonnée”) and highlight the qualities and the typicity of their terroir in France and in many countries.
At 16 kms of Aix-en-Provence, on the road to the Luberon, the Coteaux d’Aix en Provence vineyard occupies 45 hectares in a single estate of 300 hectares. It is in the heart of a protected wildlife, between cypress trees, pines and holm oaks, that vines draw all their wealth to give quality wines. The grape varieties of the appellation (grenache, syrah, cabernet-sauvignon, cinsault, vermentino, sauvignon …) are settled on a homogeneous territory of clayey-limestone slopes on a hilly relief, favorable to viticulture, very representative of Provence » The vineyards in Coteaux enjoy an excellent sunshine. Nevertheless, they do not suffer too much from the heat.
Clay and limestone soils retain moisture. The rugged relief ensures good ventilation and the average altitude of the vineyard – 370 meters – gives fresh nights even in summer. Finally, the mistral de Provence naturally cleanses the grapes. This brings a little respite to the plants which ripen with more regularity. In addition, the field practices respect for the environment and for quality a reasoned agriculture validated by the label « Mediterranean nutrition »(treatments are minimized).
Château LaCoste- Le Puy Ste Réparade in Provence.2017/6/13
Château LaCoste- Le Puy Ste Réparade in Provence.
Adhering to biodynamic principles, Château la Coste strives to preserve the terroir, protecting its fertility, safeguarding the essence of the soil. Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel the wine making Chai was inaugurated with the grape harvest of 2008.
In 2009 Château LaCoste wines were given the French organic label “AB” in recognition of the respect shown to the land along with the methods used which are in perfect harmony with nature.
Château La Coste is a vineyard where Wine, Art & Architecture live in harmony. Artists and architects were invited to visit the Domain and discover the beauty of Provence. In turn, they were encouraged to choose a place in the landscape that spoke directly to them and were given the freedom to create a work that would live there. Château La Coste will continue to evolve as new projects and installations are developed.
The walk through wooded hilltops and valleys, alongside olive groves and vine fields, can be taken at any pace, discovering the many installations of contemporary art.
The Art Centre for Château La Coste was created by Tadao Ando. The building showcases many of the Japanese master’s signature elements to create an extraordinary experience of light and space in nature. A vast infinity pool of water, one wing of the ‘V’ houses is the reception and bookshop. The other wing includes a restaurant which overlooks the water and vines.
Tadao Ando’s uniquely smooth concrete walls are marked by a series of conical points and are organised into tatami proportions. His sculptural use of this medium creates strong geometric lines, framed points of view and a variety of reflections throughout the day. The interplay between interior and exterior spaces is seen everywhere in the building.
“What I tried to do here, because of the presence of Cézanne in Aix, is create new works close to nature.” Tadao Ando says. “I wanted to capture the same, very humble spirit of a Cézanne painting.”
Three types of culinary experiences are offered.
At the Tadao Ando’s restaurant the menu highlights seasonal produce from the organic vegetable garden specially designed by Louis Benech. Provençal and Mediterranean dishes are freshly prepared in our kitchen and served throughout the day.
The Terrace is an outdoor café using ingredients from the kitchen garden, the menu offers fresh salads, veloutés, home-made tarts, farmers cheeses and organic charcuterie, accompanied by the wines of the domain.
You can enjoy live music throughout the summer.
The restaurant Mallmann: mediterranean fish roasted in a clay oven, Charolais beef cooked over fires. Fresh vegetables and herbs from Provence cooked “Rescoldo” style – buried in ashes. A long roll up of vegetables marinated and seared to perfection on the plancha. Charred summer fruits with homemade ice cream and dulce de leche pancakes for dessert.
