" The charm, the delight of this countryside, composed of hills and of valleys so narrow that some are ravines, lies in the woods – the deep, encroaching woods that ripple and rave away as far as you can see... Green meadows make rifts in them here and there, so do little patches of cultivation. But these do not amount to much, for the magnificent woods devour everything.” (traduction par Antonia White)
