Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Year in Provence (Kindle Edition)
I read this book as a recommendation in hindsight of our holidays we wanted to spend at the Provence - without having decided where to go precisely. Mayle describes the region and his experiences with the people of it during his first year after moving to the Provence from his homeland England. He describes with lots of humor and also with acceptance and understanding of the 'natives' without confirming prejudices - on the contrary: you can understand the people better after reading this book. We found some of the places he mentioned and described in his book and due to his book it was like coming home.
The region of the Luberon is wonderful and I think Mayles book was the reason that we wanted to visit it and found not only the landscape and the villages magnificent. Also the people were lovely, friendly and hospitable.
