Provence is a land apart, a territory of outstanding beauty and distinction that has fascinated outsiders since earliest times. This title features photographs and accounts of the most beautiful villages of Provence such as Vaucluse and the Bouches-du-Rhone and more.


Provence is a land apart, a territory of outstanding beauty and distinction that has fascinated outsiders since earliest times. It is in its smaller communities that the true Provencal spirit can be found. Hugh Palmer's radiant photographs and Michael Jacob's evocative accounts of the most beautiful villages of Provence opens with the villages of Vaucluse and the Bouches-du-Rhone, then moves east through the Var to the mountains of the Alpine departments and its fortified hill villages, drawing together the special characteristics of the region. In the brilliant sunlight falling across the tightly grouped terracotta roofs and the velvety shade beneath great plane trees in an ancient square, the authors encounter the country of Marcel Pagnol and Jean de Florette, the best-loved of all French provinces. The photographs of simple churches, fountains, shady squares and cobbled lanes demand leisurely observation beautiful. "Highly recommended for travel and architecture collections". ("Library Journal").
