Dreaming of Provence

Ok, I know...I already live in Paris. But, it's grey and cold and I am dreaming of Provence.
Did you hear that Norman Mayle, author of A year in Provence, is selling his provençal home? It's not the home that he wrote about in his first book that was subsequently invaded by tourists, but another located in the village of Lourmarin, 50 km from Aix-en-Provence, which is it's own little slice of heaven. And Albert Camus was also once a resident.  How cool is that!
The 18th century 6 bedroom house also boasts an olive grove, a rose garden, two ponds, a vegetable garden, an orangery, a dove cote, a summer diningroom, and a wine cellar.  It can all be yours for the asking price of 6 million euros.
