About the Author
A pioneer in the environmental world, Alastair Sawday has had a remarkably miscellaneous and varied career, which has taken him to the most far-flung corners of the globe: he headed up a VSO programme in Papua New Guinea, ran a disaster relief team for Oxfam in Turkey, and has run a small travel company, conducting walking tours throughout Europe.It was this that inspired him to publish his first travel guide, French Bed & Breakfast, after discovering various 'special' B&Bs and the extraordinary people that run them
Top Customer Reviews
This is a really well produced book which is both pleasant just to browse through on a cold winters night or use as a guide to your next holiday property. Not a lot of entries for two people on their own & some of the properties are very expensive but I suppose if more than one family are sharing the costs then they don't work out so high.
There are also an excellent series of Indices at the back of the book which assist in finding places in your desired region or for a particular property name, those with wheelchair facilities and the location of amenities etc. All in all a very handy book with absolutely beautiful properties & excellent descriptions & pictures. I think because so much experience by the compilers goes into each book I have never been disappointed with any of them.
These books are great for turning to when you are planning a trip but I must say I also often use them to browse through when I'm in "window shopping" mode... there are some lovely places here to imagine yourself in, one day in the future. For that reason they make lovely gifts for people with no particular imminent plan to travel too.
