5.0 out of 5 stars Long weekend in Normandy 29 April 2005
Format:Paperback
I admit to being a fan of the Eyewitness Guides, this one no exception. Compact, concise and packed with useful information, it's a great introduction to this beautiful, green area of France and encourages you to want to find out more.
(Page 33 mentions the 'Cidre' Route..Brilliant..THAT is highly recommended and although I'm not a Cider drinker..this stuff is wonderful!) There are lots of pics and..oh, this little book has a nice 'feel' to it!! Pop it in your pocket and away you go!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful 16 Aug 2009
By Sally
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We were on a 3 day whistle stop tour of the D-Day beaches on our way back from holiday in the Vendee. This was a really useful little guide. Nice size for me to carry around, enough information for us to know where to go to make the most of a short time - because there is so much to see around there you could easily run out of time and miss the 'best bits'.

Easy to use, punchy, to the point, and helped me to find some very good things that suited our time and tastes.

It helped me find a few bits that weren't about the war too - but close to where we were.

The fold out map came in handy more than once as well.

I would recommend this book as a good general guide but don't use it exclusively - there are some lovely things to enjoy and see in Normandy that aren't 'Top Ten'.

5.0 out of 5 stars very handy and informative 26 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback
We took this book to Normandy with us and we thought it was excellent. It tells you all you want to know and isn't a pain to carry around! Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful lists of Top-10s with tons of pictures 4 Oct 2008
By redhill
Format:Paperback
We bought both this and the Michelin Normandy guide. The Michelin green book may contain a lot more details, but if pictures are worth a thousand words each, then this Eyewitness guide more than makes up for the slim volume with pictures of just about every of their recommendations.

Was also delighted to realise there is not just one top-10 list, but this book talks about top-10 cathedrals, top-10 gardens, top-10 historic sites, et cetera - very useful when we needed specific thematic recommendations for our itinerary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost Useless 1 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is almost useless. It breaks the various attractions down into top ten lists. It then does not include an address or tagged map for many of the attractions so while you might be fascinated that Pegasus Bridge is one of the Top Ten D Day attractions you'll have to buy another map or guidebook to actually find it. Instead you get a basic map reference, say B3, which gives you the general location of the attraction. Luckily a grid square is only 20 by 20 kilometres so you won't be driving round aimlessly looking for a signpost.

Avoid this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but some repetition 1 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
This is an OK guide with lots of pictures although there is some repetition with some sites/attractions appearing in more than one top 10. There are some maps but I think a few more showing the locations on the page where the attractions are described would be useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value 18 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have visited Normandy on several occasions and will be there again this summer. Already having a range of books to help me choose places to visit, I found this book very helpful and very good value for money. It has masses of ideas arranged under various top tens of this and top tens of that, all in a lightweight, well illustrated book. I now have a variety of ideas to make our visit even more worthwhile.

Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Sightseers! 17 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this little book to go to Normandy (obviously!) based on other reviewers' comments and it was a great choice!

The book is divided into categories so information is easy to find, such as Towns/Cities, Forests, Arts & Crafts, Unspoilt Villages, Spas & Resorts, Markets, Culinary Highlights, Activities for Children, etc etc. and also divided into areas, such as Northwest Normandy, Northeast Normandy, Southwest Normandy and Southeast Normandy. The back of the book gives information (some of which is well worth noting) for you to have a safe and enjoyable holiday. Inside the back cover is a rather handy little pull-out map which gives key routes in and out of major places, such as Caen, Rouen etc. Just worth a mention is the fact that it also lists the Top 10 Things to Avoid which can end up saving you time and your well-earnt spending money!

Each section highlights the top 10 places to visit/see/eat at followed by the rest worth noting.

It's easy to navigate your way around this little book and it spent SO much more time in my hands than it ever did in the inside of my handbag! I highly recommend it.

Purchased the book prior to a visit to Normandy. I should have read the title more carefully - I was expecting more of a travel guide than a top 10 of various categories. Read more
