A Year in Provence , by Peter Mayle (couple's first year [Eighties] in rural France 2 tapes)

£3.99

Product description

" The year began with lunch. We have always found that New Year's Eve, with its eleventh-hour excesses and doomed resolutions, is a dismal occasion. And so, when we heard that, over in the village of Lacoste, the proprietor of Le Simiane, was offering a six-course lunch with pink champagne to his amiable clientele, it seemed like a much more cheerful way to start the next twelve months. "

When Peter Mayle and his wife moved into an old farmhouse at the foot of the Luberon Mountains, they embarked on a wonderful, if at times bewildering, new life.

Inundated with builders and visitors, they found themselves grappling with the native accent, taking part in boules and goat races, and supervising the planting of a new vineyard - just e few of the experiences Peter Mayle so hilariously describes in 'A Year in Provence'.

In a year that began with lunch - the first of many memorable meals - the Mayles sample the pleasures and frustrations of expatriot life and discover what it's really like to live in Provence.
