Summary
Twenty-five years ago, Peter Mayle and his wife, Jennie, were rained out of a planned two weeks on the Cô p+ s (QC (Bte d'Azur. In search of sunlight, they set off for Aix-en-Provence. Enchanted by the world and life they found there, they soon decided to uproot their lives in England and settle in Provence. They never looked back. As Mayle tells us, a cup of cafe might now cost three euros--but that price still buys you a front-row seat to the charming and indelible parade of village life. After the coffee, you might drive to see a lavender field that has bloomed every year for centuries, or stroll through the ancient history that coexists alongside Marseille's metropolitan bustle. Modern life may have seeped into sleepy Provence, but its magic remains. With his signature warmth, wit, and humor--and twenty-five years of experience--Peter Mayle is a one-of-a-kind guide to the continuing appeal of Provence
