Excellent reference book although not user friendly
on 18 November 2010
If you want detailed information about Brittany (including places off the usual tourist beat) this is the book to choose.
It is an excellent reference book with plans of the major towns, with suggested walking routes and details of things to do and see as well as suggestions for sleeping and eating. There is an estimate of the time needed to see a place as well as suggested driving tours (with distances and times) from each of the major settlements.
The book is arranged alphabetically rather than regionally so is more of a reference book rather than guide book. You do need to 'work at' this book. It is not the sort of book you can skim through area by area and pick out must sees.
The maps are poor so I bought a copy of the Michelin Map France: Brittany 512 at a scale of 1cm to 2km which I am using for planning and will use for map reading in Brittany.
We will keep it in the car to check up on places to be visited.
