My Twenty-Five Years in Provence:Reflections on Then and Now

Peter Mayle

Twenty-five years ago, author Peter Mayle and his wife, Jennie, were rained out of a planned two weeks on the Côte d'Azur. In search of sunlight, they set off for the French town of Aix-en-Provence. Enchanted by the world they found there, they uprooted their lives in England, settled in Provence, and never looked back. In his final volume of all-new writing about the South of France, Mayle offers vivid recollections, lessons learned, culinary delights enjoyed, and changes observed. A cup of café might now cost three euros, but that will still buy you a front-row seat to the charm of village life.
