Provence so dear to Jean Giono
Jean Giono is a world-renowned Provençal author. He has notably signed Le Hussard sur le toit, which tells the adventures of a hussar officer in cholera-stricken Provence. He also wrote Regain, which tells the story of the revival of a village affected by the rural exodus. A movie directed by another Provençal author, Marcel Pagnol, gave life to this book. Discover the Provence of Giono, its landscapes both austere and luminous, its authentic villages.
