Overview

Gilles Pudlowski was called by Food & Wine “one of [France’s] most ubiquitous and influential food critics.” His renowned guide–published annually for almost two decades–is now available in English.

Don’t go to France without it! Pudlo France 2008—2009 lists and describes thousands of the most desirable hotels and restaurants in villages, towns, and cities throughout the country, from the Mediterranean to the Alps. Pudlo France 2008—2009 is:

• comprehensive: Pudlo France lists accommodations of all sizes and for all budgets and tastes, and restaurants at every level of sophistication–all held to Gilles Pudlowski’s exacting standards of quality and service

• detailed: the description of each hotel or restaurant includes ambience, menu items, amenities, and a wealth of enlightening information

• completely up-to-date: unlike Michelin, Pudlo is the only guide that updates each entry yearly

• authoritative: Gilles Pudlowski is France’s most respected food critic, and the Pudlo guides, not only for Paris restaurants and hotels but for restaurants throughout France, are “the guides everyone trusts.”

Whether you’re looking for a modest pensionne in a medieval village or a luxe château in the Loire Valley, a seaside café on the Riviera or a vineyard in Burgundy, Pudlo France offers an inexhaustible array of choices–all of them enchanting.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

"Pudlo" is Gilles Pudlowski, a well-known French food critic. Last year, the 17th edition of Pudlo Paris became the first to be translated into English. This year, Pudlo France is available, offering the translated contents of the 2007 original. Covering the entire country, this hefty book is organized alphabetically by town/city and includes brief descriptions of 2000 hotels and 3000 restaurants located throughout France, with special attention paid to Paris. Colorful regional maps add to the work's usefulness. Typical entries include ratings, address, phone/fax numbers, web site (as available), and a succinct statement about ambience, decor, price ranges, number of rooms, and other information, as applicable. Hotel ratings range from one (simple) to five (very luxurious). Restaurant ratings range from one (very good) to three (grand), with additional information about meal service and notable dishes. Various symbols denote good value, relative peacefulness, historical significance, whether the listing is new to the guide, and other elements. A lengthy index lists establishments by name. Frequent and knowledgeable travelers to France may find the breadth of this work to be helpful, but others will expect more detailed advice about both food and accommodations. Recommended for libraries catering to experienced French travelers.
