New in Provence: Guest Rooms at Peyrassol Winery

Peyrassol

For travelers to Provence, the Commanderie de Peyrassol in the Var is a must-stop on the itinerary, as much for its wines as for is beautiful estate, which resembles an open-air museum dotted with sculptures. In fact, the winery has France’s largest contemporary art collection that’s open to the public, and includes pieces by Antony Gormley, Paul Berry, Kendell Geers and Bernar Venet. The winery is also rich in history, as the ancient farm was founded by the Knights Templar in the 13th century.
