Core to the problem is the splitting of the guides into regions: fine you might think but, in this case, the three principal regions are so large that it serves no useful purpose. For example, Aquitaine is vast, the introduction to which recognises four very different sub-regions which share little in common, such as the Pyrenees and Gironde, yet they are then combined into one section to little or no advantage. Why weren't these sub-regions treated separately as in a Rough Guide? Now that would have made sense?
If Michelin have a core skill it aught to be cartography. However the maps in this guide are impossibly small, scaled down versions requiring a magnifying glass to see some of the wording. I also reckon there are fewer per guide than there used to be. Their relationship to text also seems sloppy in places. For example the map on P97 does not show all of the places highlighted in the accompanying text.
Indexing is as reported by other reviewers: in short completely inadequate. How about the following: Route d'Aubisque is shown on the map on the inside front cover as the only three star attraction in the Pyrenees. OK so now look for it in the index under R, A or even d and you won't find it. In fact it is in the guide in the section relating to Bearn which itself is incorrectly indexed!Read more ›
