In Assouline's impressive coffee-table book "Provence Glory," François Simon, a French author and food critic who has written for Le Figaro, GQ and Le Monde for many years. invites readers to explore his personal version of Provence in southern France.

From lively cities to quaint villages, and everything in between, Provence offers something for everyone. Swim in the clear waters of Marseille's Calanque de Sormiou. Drive with the hood open through the vast lavender fields of Valensole. Taste freshly baked fougasse, a typical delicacy of the region. Admire the majestic white horses of the Camargue, which are at home in this area. Located in the south of France, Provence offers a special cultural mix that reflects the Mediterranean. Roman monuments from the 1st century AD still stand alongside medieval castles - a rich heritage surrounded by native mimosas and cypress trees.

Known for its inspiring character, the region is the site of numerous festivals such as Rencontre d'Arles, Festival d'Avignon, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, and many others that celebrate the arts. Artists who have praised Provence's unique light include Cézanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso. Writers such as Alexandre Dumas and Jean Giono have written their masterpieces here under the plane trees.
