Robert Levitt is an American living in France. He has had a very unique approach to his career over the years. A former investment manager he actually would go and live in the country to truly understand how it worked , it’s requirements and the opportunities and in doing so got to live in some amazing places.
His thirst for learning and knowledge has never dissipated and once he arrived in France he launched into learning the old language of Provençal and truly getting to know the local history by completing a degree in Patrimony  and then two masters degrees in Medieval History.
This led to him setting up his very unique guided tours company Via Nissa as a way to discover the local area from another angle.
His life story shows what huge value can be taken from experiencing on a deep level and how we need to live and enjoy the moment and write the novel to our lives.

Robert Reads
Here is my current reading material.    Two of the books focus on the current French situation and its background.  The third is just one of France’s classic 19th century authors.  For those interested in American history there is George Kundahl’s Riviera at War and Nathanal Philbrick, In The Hurricane Eye, which is about amiral de Grasse (who is from Le Bar-sur-Loup) and his contribution to the American Revolutionary war.
