Ménerbes became known in the English-speaking world since 1990 through the books of British author Peter Mayle, tales of a British expatriate who settled in the village of Ménerbes. One of his books was made into a film A Good Year directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe, which was filmed nearby in the region. Much was actually filmed in the nearby town of Bonnieux. Mayle’s best-known book was A Year in Provence, and this put the Luberon region onto the tourist map.
