We could have had a pretty boring, predictable fortnight in France, but instead had one of the most interesting holidays in a long time courtesy of this guide. A very good variety of things are included, with sensible advice. Pay careful note of times of opening etc - without these details you could end up missing out on lots. Even then, the French attitude to August opening is pretty random, so be aware! Picked out some really fascinating things to do/see in what seems at first to be a pretty unpromising area, but is actually a surprisingly varied place.
I hope Ms Bird reads these reviews as I am very grateful to her for the sterling job she has done with this book. We've just come back from a week in the area, and frankly I do not know what I would have done without this book. Thanks to its advice, we've had a lovely time, seen and tasted wonderful things and generally had a holiday to treasure. Highly recommended.
