If you've spent time in the South of France you know how glorious it is--the food, the landscape, the people, the wine. Reading this book is like taking a return trip, without paying for a plane ticket or using vacation days! And if you've never been to Provence, this is a great way to learn about the region and lifestyle. Pour yourself a nice glass of vin rouge, set out a crusty baguette and some cheese and olives. Lose yourself in the stories of artists, winemakers, bakers, craftspeople. Embrace the beauty and joie de vivre that is the South of France in Travelers' Tales Provence. It's the next best thing to being there.

Format: Paperback
...but the cliches come in fast and hard. The great food. The leisurely meals. The beautiful light. Food markets. (Apparently, produce tastes better when it's in season. Who knew?) The snipes at "tourists", meaning people who have a limited amount of vacation per year and are keen to see as many highlights of the region as possible. A piece about Van Gogh was engaging but so many of the stories seem a bit banal. Still, it's cheaper than airfare.
