Overview

In this wise, warm-hearted, witty, and hilariously funny true account, New York Times bestselling author Andrew Kaplan tells what it's like when he, his wife, and two-year-old son decided to chuck it all and live the fantasy in a villa by the sea in that extraordinary corner of the world - part international café society, part billionaires' playground, part provincial France - that is the French Riviera.

Whether it's matching wits with French bureaucracy, searching for the perfect bouillabaisse, encounters with con men, eccentric ex-pats, and Monaco's royal family, partying with the international set on Onassis' yacht, playing chess with a philosophical police chief, or adventures and friendships with the rich and famous and the presumably standoffish French, Once Upon a Villa will transport you to a fascinating and shrewdly-observed world that you will savor like your first-morning bite of pain au chocolate.

So pour yourself a glass of wine, open the book, and Santé!
