Really informative - but RUBBISH map!!
on 6 September 2011
As we live in the area this book seemed like a great choice for checking out where to go and what to see! (both for us and for visitors!) The information is great, detailed and interesting! BUT, and it is a BIG but, it really needs better maps! The book is divided into eight chapters. Three of those are background information; The remaining five chapters divide the Loire into manageable chunks. But there is only ONE map at the beginning of the book, which covers the whole area of the Loire Valley. Frankly in order to make this book really useful, and easy to use, there ought to be at least a map for each chapter, so that the various places featured can be located!
So - LOVE the information provided BUT really needs more maps!!
