A place apart, a land of outstanding beauty and distinction, Provence is nothing less than an earthly paradise.From one of the most famous coastlines in the world, the Cote d'Azur, to the hills and mountains of the Luberon, the variety and culture of its villages are astounding.

Michael Jacobs’s books on European travel include A Guide to Provence.From Library Journal:
Jacobs, an art historian and travel writer (A Guide to Provence, Penguin, 1989), continues to demonstrate his knowledge of Provence in this work, the perfect complementary text to Palmer's compelling photography, seen most recently in The Water Garden (Thames and Hudson, 1993). Text and photographs illustrate the belief that Provence's multiple identities are best represented in its villages, which vary greatly in character and architecture, from the fascinating west through the tranquil center to the fortified Italianate east. The photographs of simple churches, fountains, shady squares, and cobbled lanes demand leisurely observation, always justifying the inclusion of each of the more than 30 villages chosen. Information on local festivals and markets, hotels, and restaurants is also included in this beautiful volume. Highly recommended for travel and architecture collections.
