Today's drive through the beautiful Provencal countryside scenery is accompanied by a local guide art expert. (S)he will explain how the gorgeous landscapes you see out your window have inspired many generations of artists and you'll learn about contemporary art and culture in Provence.

Arriving at Chateau La Coste, discover the vineyard and an exquisite open-air museum that displays site-specific artworks wrought by some of this century's most celebrated artists and architects. To cap it all off, they are set within the region's famous and very beautiful vineyards.

Enjoy a guided tour that introduces you to the premises; then, you'll be treated to a tasting of wines produced at the estate winery.

Sit down to lunch at the Domain restaurant, where delicious Provencal- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes are dreamed up and made from fresh, seasonal, local produce.

Just a short drive away, you will be received at the charming home of a local artist. This is your opportunity to converse with talented artisans whose work is carefully selected by Art Link's curators. View their works on site, discuss them with the artists directly and, if you wish, feel free to make purchases to take some artwork home.

Head back to the ship with an armload of treasures or with nothing more than delightful memories.
