This series of guide books covers the whole of France, region by region. They are designed as practical reference books and each contains an account of the region's history, a section on food and drink and a narrative tour of the region's notable features - cities, villages, chateaux, churches, monuments and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Each region is divided into several sub-regions, and at the end of each sub-region there is a list of recommended hotels and restaurants across a wide price range, plus sports and leisure facilities, museums and art galleries. Other titles in the series include guides to Auvergne and the Massif Central, Languedoc and Roussillon and Dordogne and more
