This guide is great. I really appreciate the author's attention to details, such as where to look for fresh foods, especially organics. She also offers ideas about how to find unique accommodations, and ways of traveling in France that will bring you closer to the people and the landscape.
I like the fact that this book is easy to use, and not too big, nor too overloaded with stuff that can be found in any other guidebook. I highly recommend it, and suggest it for anyone thinking of traveling to France. It is sure to come in handy, and just paging through it makes you want to be there all the more.
