Provence je t'aime

Provence je t'aime

Author

Gordon Bitney

Gordon Bitney brings you an unforgettable taste of French cuisine and culture with his lively narrative, Provence, je t'aime, based on his experiences as a North American in Southern France. He and his wife encounter all the delightful adventures one would expect, and a few surprises!

Readers will follow the adventures of Gordon and Marie Hélène Bitney as they purchase a villa in Provence and exchange their hectic, urban existence for a tranquil, rural lifestyle. In a single plane flight to France the cobwebs of routine were gone and the rich challenge of another culture took over their days.

More than a memoir, this detailed account describes the food, the wine and the ambience of life among the vineyards and olive orchards.

The vivid description is supported by evocative pen and ink illustrations that captivate the imagination of the reader as Gordon conveys his love for the region in Provence, je t'aime.
