From the Publisher- "Provence is a region that exerts an enormous fascination worldwide. It is the wild 'provincia' of the Romans that sweeps down the lavender fields and high mountain regions to fishing ports and bustling market towns. From the whitewashed huts in the Camargue to the gracious chateaux of the troubadours, it is a region without clearly defined frontiers reflecting a truly Mediterranean abundance for life. This book presents more- and more varied interiors in Provence than have ever been published together: all kinds of homes are featured, from that of a duchess to that of a honey farmer, from an erudite art collector's bull ranch to a sculptor's gaily painted weekend cottage, from a colorful gypsy caravan to a minimalistic, modernized monastery."
