When Peter Mayle and his wife traded England's long, gray winters and damp summers for life in southern France, they entered an enchanting, wonderful, sometimes bewildering world. Now, share their adventures, pleasures, and frustrations: the joys and occasional hazards of wining and dining in France, taking part in goat races, attending a Pavorotti concert under the stars - and much more. Meet Provence's unique characters: a wary truffle hunter, a gourmet in a track suit, the wise and crafty Massot - and many more.
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
Mayle delivers with fantastic tales of France
I've listened to Peter Mayle's "French Lessons" three times and now I'm headed toward listen No. 2 of "Provence." Few writers are as clever and witty in that lovely English way as Mayle is, and few make the French such delightful characters when just being themselves. Highly recommended book.
Laughed a great deal.
