One of his better known and more important works is ‘Letters from my Windmill’ published in 1869. Written in the first person, it tells of a Parisian author’s new life in Provence in which he recounts day to day events in the south in a light-hearted way.
The windmill, located just outside Fontvieille, makes a splendid sight when lit by the late afternoon sun. Furthermore, there is a cross country trail nearby.
Marcel Pagnol’s film (1954) of Daudet’s work entitled ‘Les Lettres de mon Moulin’ can be bought on DVD (In French).
