The final book from the beloved author of A Year in Provence: recollections from twenty-five years in France—lessons learned, culinary delights, and changes observed.

From the moment twenty-five years ago when Peter Mayle and his wife, Jennie, uprooted their lives in England and crossed the Channel permanently, they never looked back. Here Mayle pays tribute to the most endearing and enduring aspects of their adopted Provence—the charming and indelible parade of village life, the sheer beauty, the ancient history. He celebrates the café as an idea and lists some of his favorites; identifies his favorite villages, restaurants, and open-air markets; and recounts his most memorable meals. With his signature warmth, wit, and humor, Peter Mayle was a one-of-a-kind guide to Provence, and in his final book he has crafted a lasting love letter to his adopted home.
