Overview


This is the France where olive trees and citrus thrive, where medieval popes enjoyed their Babylonian captivity, where the light ignited the geniuses of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Matisse. Cadogan's frank, funny and highly opinionated guide takes you from the Alps above the glittering Cote d'Azur to vertiginous Cathar castles of the Pyrenees and the unspoiled wildernesses of Languedoc-Roussillon, and makes sure you miss nothing along the way: whether it's a hidden sandy cove, a village perche with (or without) lavender shops, flocks of Camargue flamingos, fields of yellow mimosa, the perfect bouillabaisse, or the world's only museum of sardines. This guide offers practical travel advice, over 600 hand-picked places to stay, over 450 restaurants, bars and cafes, the best, cleanest and quietest beaches as well as vintners' tales and vineyard visits.
