They had been there often as tourists. They had cherished the dream of someday living all year under the Provencal sun. And suddenly it happened. Here is the month-by month account of the charms and frustrations that Peter Mayle and his wife -- and their two large dogs -- experience their first year in the remote country of the Luberon restoring a two-centuries-old stone farmhouse that they bought on sight. From coping in January with the first mistral, which comes howling down from the Rhone Valley and wreaks havoc with the pipes, to dealing as the months go by with the disarming promises and procrastination of the local masons and plumbers, Peter Mayle delights us with his strategies for survival. He relishes the growing camaraderie with his country neighbors -- despite the rich, soupy, often impenetrable patois that threatens to separate them. He makes friends with boar hunters and truffle hunters, a man who eats foxes, and another who bites dentists; he discovers the secrets of handicapping racing goats and of disarming vipers. And he comes to dread the onslaught of tourists who disrupt his tranquillity. In this often hilarious, seductive book Peter Mayle manages to transport us info all the earthy pleasures of Provencal life and lets us live vicariously in a tempo governed by seasons, not by days. George Lang, who was smitten suggests: "Get a glass of marc, lean back in your most comfortable chair, and spend a delicious year in Provence."… (mehr)

This is an intimate look at life in Provence, told by an Englishman recently moved into his own ramshackle house in paradise. The format starts in January and goes month to month, depicting weather, events, and the curious eccentrics, both neighbors and visitors. It's a quick, breezy read, and not a propaganda piece for sure--he talks about the good, the ugly, but a love for the place carries through everything.

I'm amazed at the lasting fame of this book. Maybe it had such an impact because there was never a travel book quite like this before, I don't know, but I was left with a vague sense of newly-come foreigner who enjoyed sharing juicy gossip on the local peasants. I was rather bothered by how his wife is like a shadow, rarely mentioned, never given a name. It's an interesting book for the local insights, but I would have found it more enjoyable as fiction than nonfiction. ( )

I have been aware of this book since it came out decades ago but never read it until now. Turns out it was a perfect end of year read. With the world feeling like it was falling apart, it was just the cozy book I craved to remind me of happier days. I'd recommend to anyone as a treat during these long winter days in this year of so much unhappiness. ( )

One of my favorite escapes! ( )

This book made me feel like I actually knew what it was like to live in France. Reading it dovetailed with my own education in all things regarding red wine. It also made me want to live there. I now have both a friend and a relative who reside in this country. As soon as the pandemic is over, it is high on our list of places to visit!

A wonderful book and series of books from an author who will truly be missed. ( )

A highly enjoyable read. This is labelled a travel book, but it's really more a memoir about relocation. Lots of interesting anecdotes and foodie descriptions. ( )
