Funny, touching, endearing - Peter Mayle's Provence proves the adage that while you may not be able to escape from it all, you sure can have fun trying.

Relaxing and light hearted read
If Provence is, in fact the warm, endearing place Peter Mayle has portrayed in his books then I am ready to pack up and move there tomorrow.
The chapters are almost complete in themselves, in the way of James Herriot's books, and so are easily read and easily put down again.
The characters are realistic, and Mayle's dry British humor is delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed these books and hope others will, too!

Peter Mayle's Provence Redux
What did you love best about Peter Mayle's Provence: Including 'A Year in Provence' and 'Toujours Provence'?
Being able to listen to the author, himself, reading was quite a joy. Not that Mr. Macnee's mellifluous voice was, in any way, of a diminished quality. I had read all of Mr. Mayle's books in the past; and thought it was time to revist them via the spoken work. I was not dissapointed.
I would like nothing better to be able to listen to all of Mr. Mayle's Provence books, especially HOTEL PASTIS, in the AUDIBLE format.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
This was not the kind of "edge of your seat" book that I wanted to rush through to get to the ending. Reading Mayle reminds me of why I sail.. It's the journey, not the destination.
In fact, I do not want these lovely books to ever end!
