The Forest of the Senses

Florence and Daniel Cathiard wanted to turn the forest of Château Smith Haut Lafitte into a place of expression for young local contemporary artists. The vineyards of the Château Smith Haut Lafitte and Les Sources de Caudalie already house several artworks from international artists.

Discover the Forest of Senses

Since the 1rst of July, the 8 hectares forest is now an open sky museum. All the artworks are exposed to natural elements and live in total harmony with the environment or in contrary in a creative opposition and they all represent the philosophy of Château Smith Haut Lafitte: the respect for the environment and the biodiversity.
