Présentation de l'éditeur

Peter Mayle’s delightful bestsellers A Year in Provence and Toujours Provence redefined the phrase “great escape.” Now he has made that irresistible landscape the setting for a beguiling novel of romance, adventure, and tongue-in-cheek suspense.

Simon Shaw, a rumpled, fortyish English advertising executive, has decided to chuck it all in and transform an abandoned police station in the Lubéron into the small but world-class Hotel Pastis. On his side, Simon has a loyal majordomo and a French business partner who is as practical as she is ravishing. But he hasn’t counted on the malignant local journalist—or on the mauvaise types who have chosen the neighboring village as the site of their latest bank robbery.

Slyly funny and overflowing with sensuous descriptions of the good life, Hotel Pastis is the literacy equivalent of a four-star restaurant. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mmm is for Mayle. 9 juillet 2016

Yes, it's predictable, but only if you've read everything else he's written. If you have done that, than not only do you have a pretty good idea of how this book is going to turn out, you also know that you are going to relish every word. I love Mayle's deeply affectionate portrayals of Provençal life, people, and cuisine. Every book is like a brief, poignant vacation. Buy this book. Enjoy it with a crisp white wine, a buttered baguette, and perhaps some wafer-thin slices of salted radish. It will be delicious.

Not as good as his other books. Simple. It reads almost like a young teenager's detective book. I don't recommend it unless one is looking for very easy beach reading.

All of his books are recommended. He is able to paint a picture with his words, and take the reader there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hotel Pastis.....Where Do I Check In!! 3 novembre 2001
Par douglas barton - Publié sur

I'll begin this review by giving "Hotel Pastis" a total of SIX stars instead of the obligatory five. Stay with me and I'll explain why.
Being such an incredible fan of Mr. Mayle's previous books on Provence I was slighly apprehensive about his delving into the world of fiction. Untested waters to be sure but I held my breath and waited for "Hotel Pastis " to appear at my local book store. When it finally arrived I, without hesitation, picked up my copy and that evening sat down... ready to be disappointed.Obviously, quite the opposite has occured. Looking back over the past few years when I first read this novel I actually have to laugh at my apprehensiveness (ummm... is that a word?).
"Hotel Pasts" is, at least for me, one of the most enchanting, funny and in some small, strange way, romantic books I have read in many a year. Mr. Mayle simply makes you really care about the people that populate this book and you truly do want to see an "happy-ending"! The novel is written in an extremely fast-paced mode and moves along with the speed of sound! Never a dull moment! Without going into the plot of the novel, the main character Simon Shaw and his "man Friday" Ernest are both so cleverly drawn and fleshed out that I keep hopeing for a sequel to this work. Especially Ernest, part valet, part confidant, part friend and qualified Rolls-Royce mechanic is simply so fascinating that his character alone is worthy of a book.
Obviously,as in any Peter Mayle novel ( and in real life) things don't always go as intended for our "heroes" and that is where the fun truly begins. This book simply has it all...French comedy, romance, bumbling crooks, ex-wives, a malignant local journalist and, perhaps most important of all, the French country-side, in all it's glory. Perhaps, in some way, the villages of southern France are as much of the novel as the characters. Altogether an extemely well-rounded first novel that is as fruity and smooth as a bottle of pastis!
Do yourself a huge favor and run to your library or local book store and pick up your very own copy. I've bought countless copies as gifts and speaking for myself have read this wonderful book on 'six' seperate occassions. And while you're at it pick up a wonderful bottle of wine and an an Edith Piaf record. You may not be in France certainly won't be home either! Bon Appetit!!
