Visiting this restaurant, on a gorgeous clear and sunny October day, was a lovely surprise. I had often heard about the restaurant and had never visited. Set to one side of the chateau, Restaurant L'Art de Vivre, is in modern dining room, with a wide expanse of open dining, with large windows that open out onto beautiful views of the vineyards of La Clape on one side, and on the other windows look onto the inner courtyard with views of the Chateau and outbuildings. Dining is possible on terraces either in the courtyard, or looking onto the vines.

Being Sunday we took the lunch menu, that included in the price a wine buffet. Here wine is king and queen together. Chilled or at room temperature - lovely light muscat sec was tasted, along with a pleasant classic white. Then later a red reserve, and a classic red with good texture, fruitiness, and pleasure confidently entranced us. The menu itself was simple, delicate, and careful. The portions correct, perfectly poised to bring out the tastes of the wine.

The room itself is wonderfully designed, and the furnishings correct and sympatic.
