This review is from: Alan Rogers France 2007: Quality Camping and Caravanning Sites (Alan Rogers Guides) (Paperback)
I didn't find this book much use. The site information is attractively presented with a wealth of detail, but the map is unhelpful, containing very few place names, and shows the sites as arbitrary numbers which then have to be looked up in one of the 3 indices before you can find the entry in the gazeteer. Even when you find the entry, you are not told where the site is (e.g. where the nearest significant town is). And it is too large to fit in my caravan bookshelf. I also had the Italian version and toured Europe this autumn but did't use either book once.
You would do much better to buy the Caravan Club's Europe 1 and 2. These cost a bit more (not much if you're a member), between them cover the whole of Europe, and contain about five times as many sites in each country, with pretty well all the site information you need, albeit in shorthand, updated by the members who use the site. Included is a completely comprehensive guide to every aspect of motoring abroad, even down to individual motorway tolls.
Each country has a map which shows the names of the towns nearest each site or group of sites, and the entry in the gazeteer tells you how far away it is from that town and in which direction. It's in alphabetical order so doesn't need an index.
