'A fascinating read... will entertain most people whether they are planning to cross the channel or not' -- Essex Chronicle

'These guides are beautifully produced and a delight to read and own’ -- Living France Magazine

‘Bursting with practical information and in-depth knowledge, Cadogan Guides also make a cracking good read.’ -- The Times

From the Back Cover

Cadogan's food-lovers guide offers a choice of 30 indulgent days out--in cities, small towns and deep countryside, in fishing villages and ports--focusing on a leisurely lunch or dinner. A description of the area's cultural and historic highlights includes historic ports such as Boulogne, Honfleur and St-Malo, and lesser-known, charming towns like Montreuil and Eu.

There are places to eat and stay to suit all tastes and budgets, and every choice is memorable--from some of the region's finest gourmet tables to local bistros and snoozy country auberges, from grand hotels to characterful chambres-d'hôtes and cosy farmhouses.

Useful for its purpose 22 July 2002
By saliero - Published on
Format: Paperback
The main audience for this book is Britons looking for interesting short breaks close to home. It serves its purpose admirably, in the usual high quality Cadogan way. It covers in good detail places which are mere footnotes in other guides which detail much vaster areas. There are whole chapters, for example, on Bayeux, the D-Day beaches, Montreuil, Boulogne, the western Cotentin peninsula, to name a few (complete list below).
BE WARNED HOWEVER: If you are looking for information on World War One battlefields, sites and memorials, this is not a subject covered in this book.
List of places covered (each includes getting there, tourist info, eating, staying, shopping, touring around)
Calais, Boulogn, St Omer, Cassel and the Monts de Flandre, Lille, Arras, Montreuil, Hesdin and the Sept vallees, Baie de la Somme, Amiens, Eu, Dieppe and the Caux Maritime, Fecamp and Etretat, the Pays de Bray, Rouen, Ry and the Foret de Lyons, Giverny and the Seine Valley, Honfleur, Trouville and Deauville, Northern Pays d'Auge, Southern Pays d'Auge and Falaise, Normandy Beaches, Bayeux, Balleroy and the Pre-Bocage, Barfleur, Cap de la Hague, Western Cotentin coast, The Cotentin Bocage, Mon St-Michel and its bay, St-Malo.

Short Breaks in Northern France 19 Nov. 2002
By Michael Nemanic - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although this book might seem to be written for British travelers planning to pop over to Normandy for a few days, it can also be a great guide of any traveler planning to spend some time in Normandy by piecing together the different areas featured here. Because of the title I almost didn't buy this book but my preference for the Cadogan series finally won out, and my husband and I found it to be invaluable. There is excellent, detailed information here not found in any of the several other guides we have on Normandy, and we especially approve of the restaurant recommendations. A big thumbs up on this one
