Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"COMPREHENSIVE is a word that could have been invented for this Frommer's guide to France with 125 maps and 105 self-guided tours in more than 700 pages.
Packed with information, but never dense due to the superb photographs, maps and information boxes, the guide gives day-by-day itineraries to get the best out of a stay: whether long or short.
Chapters cover the main areas with sections on Favorite Moments, Budget France, how to do each area in up to a week, spotlights on special features and what to see for history, outdoors or art buffs.
There is also a section on special-interest trips which cover topics like flying, photography and outdoor crafts.
However, crazily it has an over-ambitious France in One Week itinerary covering just Paris, Versailles, Chartres, Blois, Tours and La Rochelle – which certainly fills a week but is by no means "France in a week".
The guide does, however, recognise this, saying one week is barely time to see Paris alone.
Surprisingly, it states that French hotels are graded on a five star system but omits to mention the Palace grade which was created last year as the ultimate accolade.
For a catch-all guide to France this is magnificent." (The Connexion, 2 March 2012)
