Over the years, La Commanderie des Peyrassol has become a jewel of Provence thanks to its Contemporary Art Collection.

The introductory tour of the estate continues with the Permanent Sculpture Exhibition that enriches the sublime contemporary art collection.

Art is everywhere and the masterpieces dotted around the property, skilfully staged, encourage visitors to wonder, to marvel, to dream, and to also have fun during their strolls.

Around wine

 

In keeping with the spirit that has always marked this place since its creation by the Knights Templar, La Commanderie de Peyrassol invites you to stop by and visit the cellars of the Château Peyrassol vineyards and taste its AOP Côtes de Provence wines.

When Philippe Austruy visited La Commanderie for the first time, he fell in love with this historic place where … everything had to be restored! After ten years of work on all fronts, the old Commanderie has regained its former prestige.

The buildings have been fully renovated, restoring their typical medieval agricultural architecture. In line with the work undertaken in the vineyard, the cellar has been completely redesigned to further improve the quality of the wines.

You will be welcomed in this majestic setting and accompanied in your discovery of the estate by our friendly team, who will provide valuable tasting advice.
