Summary
Peter Mayle and his wife, Annie, move to France and adjust to both the idiosyncracies of the locals and the quaint traditions of Provence. Winter: The Mayles bid adieu to gloomy London and begin their new life in a 200-year old farmhouse which soon develops frozen water pipes, opening the door to the local "Napoleon of plumbers". Spring: With the glorious spring comes a parade of visitors lured by the extravagant meals and the generous Mayles. Summer: The sun is high, the days long and the annual goat race in the town square is at hand. Fall: Their houseguests have all returned to dreary old England, the renovations to their home have finally been completed and the wine cellar is stocked with their own vintage
