2011"Chanteduc" is the justly-acclaimed Patricia Wells's (a fine critic and cookbook writer) home in Vaison La Romaine...in northern Provence.  I've found it amusing that Patricia (who's an inescapably intelligent woman) obviously makes a point, in her many books, of not being too entirely specific about just-where her house is.  I've gathered that she doesn't want to end up like Peter Mayles (who finally had to pack up and MOVE once all of his fans got wind of where-exactly he and his wife actually lived).
