I dream of Provence.
Gardens of glorious flowers.
Lavender fields of breath-taking fragrance.
Symphonies of Cicada love songs.
Edith Piaf’s smoky voice fills my home with music.
I’m preparing a heavenly chicken saute - Provence style. I pour a glass of Cotes du Rhone Parallede 45. We’ll eat in front of the big stone fire-place. Then watch two movies that will take us away to Provence.
MY FATHER’S GLORY and MY MOTHER’S CASTLE are based on the memoirs of renowned French author/filmmaker Marcel Pagnol.
They are a captivating recollection of a young boy’s life in turn-of-the-century South of France. It is so beguiling, charming and endearing you will watch it again and again. Bastide Neuve beckons. Come to Provence.
