Well the title looks familiar...and Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence may have been the trigger for Christopher Marsh's brilliant debut novel - but there the similarities end.
Rather than a middle class Brit travelling all the way to the South of France to patronize the locals, Southern Europe gets its own back courtesy of Jesus Sanchez Ventura - the funniest fictional creation in many a year.

The excellent characterization of the main character here makes the book. He has moved his family from the countryside of Spain to a village in Ireland. It's written in kind of toungue-in-cheek way that lets you roll with the punches and him as he takes life in stride.
