His original intention had been to write a novel, but instead, he came up with A Year in Provence, a breezy and affectionate memoir about Provençal cuisine and the tribulations of dealing with local builders, plumbers, and tradesmen as he sought to renovate his new home.

Although his publisher was not bullish – the initial print run was 3000 copies – the book became a bestseller in Britain and the US; it was eventually translated into some 20 languages, and in 1993 was turned into a BBC miniseries starring John Thaw and Lindsay Duncan as the writer and his wife. In 1990, Mayle published a sequel, Toujours Provence, which was also a bestseller.
