Charming hilltop villages, glittering coastline, rippling lavender fields… Provence is undeniably enchanting. Situated in Southeast France, the beloved region enjoys a unique blended culture thanks to Mediterranean influences. This collector’s tome features text by renowned French author and food critic François Simon and over 200 breathtaking photos, from the wild white horses of Camargue to the ancient Roman landscapes to the crystal-clear waters of Marseille.


An undeniably chic addition to any coffee table, Provence Glory celebrates this intoxicating cultural mix and the artists who have shaped it (Matisse, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Picasso, to name just a few).
