Editorial Reviews

Peter and Annie Mayle fulfill their cherished dream when they quit the London rat race and move to rustic Provence to savor the French way of life good food, fine wines, and seductive climate. Ah, but the Provençal way of life is something quite different even the French find it peculiar. Based on Peter Mayle's international bestseller by the same name, A YEAR IN PROVENCE is the hilarious first year account of the Mayles' adjusting to both the idiosyncrasies of the locals and the quaint traditions of this ancient and charming region. Vive la différence!

WINTER: The Mayles bid adieu to gloomy London and begin their new life in a cozy farmhouse in the Lubéron Valley. SPRING: With the glorious spring comes a parade of visitors lured by the extravagant meals and the generous Mayles. SUMMER: Summer is slow and savory, marked by leisurely games of boules French bowling in the town square. FALL: The year in Provence ends with crisp days and a cellar full of wine produced right on the Mayle grounds.

BONUS FEATURE: Peter Mayle Biography/Bibliography

***UPDATE*** WARNING NORTH AMERICAN SHOPPERS *** DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!!!

This is a great miniseries, but only if you can actually watch it...

We purchased 3 copies of Year in Provence from this vendor in December 2013 via Amazon and have recently learned that these were Region 2 format (Europe), NOT REGION 1 NORTH AMERICA. It is true that the DVD format is given as Region 2 on the Amazon Page and failing to read every jot and tittle is MY bad.

But it is ridiculous that this company does not prominently list on a North American Amazon page which caters to North American customers that the DVD FORMAT BEING OFFERED WILL NOT WORK ON NORTH AMERICAN DVD PLAYERS. Ten months after making the purchase as Christmas gifts we can hardly expect a refund and are not asking for anything (except maybe an apology). BUT BUYERS BEWARE! The vendor might want to fix this issue.
**********************************

After waiting over 2 months for the "pending" release of the "New" version of this absolutely terrific 4-part series we wound up buying several copies of the "Old" version because we wanted them as gifts for people we know who love southern France, would like to go to southern France, or just love a good story.

These "old" version DVDs are identical to the edition we have had for a couple of years-originally shot in analog video in the early 1990s and put onto DVD, so nowhere near H.D. resolution, but perfectly adequate. Maybe part of the intent of a "new" version is to improve the image quality...but the best version of anything is the best one you can actually GET, and for now this seems to be it.

Wonderful movie, as others have reviewed, but with all the French language, it would be helpful to have English captions/sub-titles for English speakers.

It was nice to see John Thaw in this programme as I forgot about this programme from 1989,it was interesting the way it was done going through each month and what was happening to them each month of the year with other peoples little stories as well,suppose it would of been better in my opinion and confusing when some french was spoken throughout the whole dvd by certain french people and it threw me what was going on sometimes,at times I found it dragged a bit,some might like it better than me,it was funny in parts as well...

I first saw the series on Saudi Aramco TV in the 90's and I enyoyed the show each week at 1/2 hour for each episode, but having the entire series together on the DVD's was very enjoyable and it kept the theme consistent. It reminded me of the series Green Acres in France, it was only missing Arnold the Pig.

This film is 6 hours long but it is done month by month, so you can view it in segments if you don't have 6 hours in one shot. It is worth watching, well done and views to cherish
