Nestled at the foot of the Massif des Maures and surrounded by hundred-year-old cork oak forests and majestic umbrella pines, the Château Réal d’Or enjoys a sumptuous setting with a dreamlike quality to it. And on Saturday, 6th October, this unique location in the heart of Provence will be the setting for the very first edition of the Château Réal d’Or car auction, run by Réal d’Or Events.

The exhibition of the lots will take place during a garden party where visitors will be able to discover the works of the famous sculptor Michel Audiard, and the painter Michel Bonnard.
At the same time, the Sénéquier To Go and Gillardeau oyster house establishments will provide accompaniments to the Château Réal d’Or wine tasting that will take place before the auction starts at 3pm.
