French Essence is a celebration of life in Provence, one of the most charming regions of France.  Vicki Archer reveals the underpinnings of that famous French ambience and sense of style, and offers inspiration to all of us who want to understand the beauty, experience the lifestyle and emulate the interiors of this exquisite part of the world.

Ten years ago, Vicki Archer bought and restored a seventeenth-century property in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, and told the story in her book My French Life.  Now, in collaboration again with celebrated photographer Carla Coulson, she shares with us her love for Provence.
