When the opportunity arises to leave damp and dreary 1980s England, they would be foolish not to take it. So they do. Loaded up, complete with the family cat, the Yull family head off on an adventure to the South of France.

Their love affair with the "Midi" was first ignited almost ten years before, and when the chance to "live the dream" presents itself, they do not hesitate.

The dream, at times, turned into a nightmare, with snakes, cyclones and mudslides to contend with, but good food and excellent company with old friends and new, soon help the family settle into their new life in the sun.

    Good narrative

    An interesting read. Full of interesting characters but a lot of 'Name dropping" which I found a bit boring. However it is written about my very favourite area in France and that is why I purchased this particular book.
