Provence for All Seasons

Author

Gordon Bitney

Gordon Bitney brings us another installment of life in the French countryside, among the orchards and vineyards, the outdoor marchés and the ruins from the Roman times and the Middle Ages, scattered across this picturesque backdrop. Written in an intimate and colourful style, this book reflects the stunning landscapes that inspired Cézanne, Picasso and Van Gogh.
His personal journey examines what makes Provence such a special place. As Bitney cycles from village to village, he finds himself enmeshed in the lives of the locals, be it hurriedly harvesting grapes before the rain season or hunting for truffles.
Taking the tourism out of travel and making a far corner of the world his own, Bitney's love of the region and its people resounds through the pages of this work.
