Brilliant and nicely updated with a new section on the islands. Does what it says on the tin!

Having used and loved Michelin Guides for years I was bitterly disappointed by this guide. It does not use the tried and tested formula and is very difficult to follow. The entries are no longer in alphabetical order, and the index is very inadequate. Some places, even those marked as 'recommended' are not in the index so are impossible to find. Aulnay is a case in point - recommended on the map and mentioned in the architechture section but not listed in the index and I still haven't managed to find it in the book! Much space is now taken up with hotels/restaurants which makes less space for in depth information on sights, which was the great advantage of the old guides. Frankly the Rough Guide to France is a better bet.

Have used the Michelin Green guides for a long time, had the old version of this area but thought it time to replace. Found this version to have lots of information and mentioned most places, but with no depth, wasn't really helpful, only to let you know the place existed. Not a patch on the earlier versions.

I have been using Green Guides for decades, and generally found them well researched, organised and easy to use. I purchased this one to complete my collection of guides to France but, if this is anything to go by, this will be my last. What could possibly have motivated Michelin to dispense with their traditional values that made their guides so successful?

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!

We bought this book because it is an updated version of our 1990s book for this area, which we have found to be a brilliant. Only last week we also bought the 2011 edition for Brittany, which again we find is a must for all travellers.It was actually received 3 days before the date of publication - well done Amazon!
