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.
Now, 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 is part memoir, part homeowner's manual, part travelogue, and all charming fun." (Amazon.com review)
You are able to tell the characters by their accents and flow of language...French to English.
My first of his books.
I really felt like I was in Provence. I could see all that happened and tell by their voices whether they were excited or hohum. Because i studied French in HS, it was a fresh way to hear the language again.
My attention span is not that long.
Want to visit France? Take a trip to Provence by listening to this book.
