Author Name:Lasdun, James/ Davis, Pia


Foodie authors James Lasdun and Pia Davis offer forty walks through the extraordinary landscape of Provence, each specially designed to combine natural beauty, historical interest and, of course, world-class local cuisine. 
James and Pia offer a wide array of itineraries, from multi-day adventures that are linked by train to short half-day excursions.
This is a guide that is perfect for both doers and dreamers — for those who are planning a trip to Provence and those who want to explore the region from the comfort of their home.
From the fjord-like calanques near Marseilles, through the classic Provencal villages of the Luberon mountains, to the remote wilderness of the Mercantour National Park, Moon Walking and Eating in Provence guides travelers through the best sights — and flavors — of this remarkable region of France.

  •     I love traveling in France and look forward to my next trip. To this end, I readquite a bit on the various regions: everything from Peter Mayles wonderful books tothe green guides. When I came across this book, it seemed ideal for me.Unfortunately, what seems to be a good reference, is killed by the authors condescendingand pompous style of writing. I didn't like this to start with, and when Icame to a totally out of place bashing of my country, I gave up. The book goes inthe trash, where it belongs.
  •     Unlike the previous reviewer I found this book a wonder .... both in terms of the walks and the restaurants included. Many of the walks are based around some of the best small traditional restaurants in the region and are highly recommended.The style of writing I actually found inspirational in terms of making me want to do the walks and this combined with practical logistical information was a winner.I am only sorry their only other guide is to Tuscany ..... and both probably need an update.
