Overview


Mediterranean France arouses the senses with its heady cocktail of light and color, and the Cadogan guide serves it up with verve. It's all here: the arty, chic Riviera, sunny Provencal villages perches, the serene Canal du Midi, dramatic Roman ruins, cloud-topped Cathar castles, the mysterious Camargue with its white horses, Catalan southern Roussillon, and the sublime landscapes that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne, Dufy and Matisse - all scented by a sun-warmed bouquet of lavender, violet, mimosa, lemon and wine. Dynamic cities such as Nice, Marseille, Nimes, Montpellier and Perpignan contrast with the serenity of rural Herault, with mountain wildernesses and national parks, and there are markets to explore and restaurants to rival Paris's finest.
Inside you will find:

* Over 600 hotels, chambres d'hote and auberges
* Over 450 restaurants, bars, brasseries and cafes
