Author(s): Simonetta Greggio
Presents a tour through the charms of small French towns. Travel between hilltop hamlets in the Central Massif and in the Pyrenees to rockbound coastal fishing villages in Normandy and Brittany to the ancient woodsy towns of Alsace with their half-timbered Hansel-and-Gretel architecture and fortress-like castles.
Simonetta Greggio was born in Italy but her passion was always for France. She moved to Paris to study literature under Milan Kundera and has coauthored numerous lifestyle books in the last decade including Provence, Luberon, and La Cote d'Azur. She has also published, in French, a widely acclaimed novel called La Douceur des Hommes.
