More than 40,000 listeners have enjoyed this story on cassette. Now anyone whos ever dreamed of getting away from it all can enjoy the charms and challenges of A Year in Provence on CD

Peter Mayle and his wife had been to Provence as tourists. They had dreamed of one day trading the long, gray winters and damp summers of England for the blue skies and sunshine of the coast of southern France. And then they made it happen.

They moved into an old farmhouse at the foot of the Luberon mountains and embarked on a wonderful, if at times bewildering, new life. Among their experiences that first year: being inundated with builders and visitors, grappling with the native accent, taking part in goat races and supervising the planting of a new vineyard.

Peter Mayle personally recounts the pleasures and frustrations of Provençal life—sharing in a way no one else can, the unique and endearing culture that is Provence.

A Year in Provence was a New York Times bestseller for three years and won the British Book Awards “Best Travel Book of the Year.”
