I usually by the DK Explorer guidebooks when I go away - I am not slavish to guidebooks but the DK series are superbly put together and make an interesting read in their own rights. The Michelin Green Guide most certainly is not in the same category but does at least exist to cover the Languedoc-Roussillon area of France and so I was left wanting something more readable when DK had no offering. The Cadogan Guides are new to me as they do not seem to get into general bookstores but I liked the sample shown on Amazon and am very impressed with the book itself.

The style is chatty and that may irritate some people looking for a more straightforward guide but it makes for a good read and that will be what I will do on my terrace with a glass of Corbieres (or two)!

This guide is thorough and well written with plenty of maps, a history of the area as well as descriptions of the sites to see. Unfortunately, because of the thoroughness, it is sometimes difficult to pick out the particular places that you would like to visit without reading the whole guide. All in all, it is the best guide we could find for this area of France and certainly helped us enjoy the holiday.

The guide was purchased to go with a weekend visit to the Languedoc - Roussillon area in February. It was very informative and greatly assisted our initial and brief visit to the area. The content has encouraged us to rerurn at some date in the future, in order to explore the region, more fully.

We are off for a week to Montpelier in a couple of weeks time. I like to have a guide of an area before I go to give me an idea. This is very comprehensive but for me probably has too much info. I need a flavour of an area and a few unmissable places to visit and that is all. That having been said if you are spending more time than we are in this area of France it would provide you with lots of information and places to visit.

Good clear guide with some interestingly different recommendations. Not quite a wide as some but well presented and useful addition to background for this attractive area of France.

By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 Jan. 2012
An updated version of this popular guide. Let the team of Facaros and Pauls guide you through this lovely region of France. Discover all there is to see and do, special places to eat and specialities of the region. The guide starts with a history and essential information in the A-Z. The guide book is then split into different areas of this region with useful maps and all the information you'll need presented in a practical format.

This is the worst guide book I have ever read. The writing style tries to be colloquial but just comes across as stupid and embarrassing. There is a massive lack of detail and information. It did not include any of the smaller or more remote villages that we visited and did not fully cover the area. It may be helpful to those tourists who just want to see the 'sights' but is of no use to anyone wanting to explore and get to know a fascinating area. I'll stick with my Rough Guide or Lonely Planet in the future.
