Cadogan Provenceby Dana Facaros, Michael Pauls
Few places seduce the senses like Provence, with its sun-flooded landscapes and glittering night skies, its simple cuisine and outstanding wines, and its silvery olive groves, fields of lavender and sunflowers and fierce mistral. Dramatic ruins conjure up scenes of the decadent Roman decline that took place here, while the luminous paintings produced for the worldly papal court in turn inspired the revolutionary work of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Picasso. Cadogan's updated and comprehensive guide takes you beyond the holiday homes, trinket shops and traffic jams to the region's wildest mountains and stretches of coast, its glorious villages perches, and its most vibrant cities and markets.
