Product Description

Review

"Down to earth accurate information for every budget, enthusiastically written." -- Travel & Leisure --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

A British writer living on the southern (French) side of Lake Geneva in a house with lake and Jura mountain views, Nicola is well and truly spoilt...so much so that she only eats in places that cook up real McCoy lake fish (most comes from Eastern Europe) and if the sky is not blue she refuses to ski. A journalist by trade, she worked in the Baltic region as a newspaper features editor and later as In Your Pocket city-guide editor for several years before trading in Lithuanian cepelinai for Lyonnais andouillette in 1997. She has authored numerous titles for Lonely Planet, including first editions of The Loire, Provence & the Côte d'Azur and Languedoc-Roussillon.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ned Middleton TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 28 2010
Format: Paperback
My work involves visiting the world's major shipwrecks. Whilst I may not be looking for those major attractions treasures which are found in the places I visit, I do have need of that local information which tells me where I can stay and eat. Consequently, I am just as likely to be seeking the same information in some out-of-the-way port as any visitor.

Over many years I have consulted a great many books which claim to be visitor guides. Because I have neither the time nor the patience for false, misleading, out-of-date or simply inaccurate information, most of those so-called guides have ended up in the bin. This is not so with the Lonely Planet country guides and this one is as good as they get.

In short; Thoroughly recommended. Just make certain you purchase the latest edition.

The Lonely Planet books are the best travel guide books available! We have used them to travel through Egypt, Israel, China, Vietnam and most countries in Europe and found them to be excellent. We have slept in and ate in many of the places that they recommend and never once come away disappointed. This holds true for the France book as well. The description of sights to see is to the point and just what we needed. The details on which bus/metro to take to various places has always been accurate. As a seasoned traveler, I would definitely say that Lonely Planet books, including the France one, are the best out there!

Format: Paperback
We used Lonely Planets for holiday travel in southern France for the first (and possible last) time. The recommended restaurant of Peter Mayle fame, Gu et Fils, on Frederick Mistral in Aix was either a typo or non-existent as we located the street but no restaurant to be found. Restaurant Le Merou Bleu of Marsailles was a mediocre tourist trap with despicable service. The impersonal nature of the LP recommendations for hotels merely define the facilities, but do not say enough about the character or level of cleanliness. We checked in (and out of) one of Lonely Planet's recommended two star hotels in Avignon and for about five euros more per night, found a potential three star hotel that was much better siutated, cleaner, bigger and quieter.

Format: Paperback
Boy was this book a disappointment. Other LP guides weren't this bad. It seems this book only tries to get you to those places every other tourist is at, and only by public transportation. It skips out-of-the-way places that locals know and love, chooses hotels in noisy central sections of larger towns only. Worse, my 2002 edition still didn't give costs in Euro! Thanks to friends living in various areas of France, I was able to visit wonderful places that aren't even mentioned in the book. Restaurants were poorly chosen, and almost always tourist traps. If you rented a car (which is a really smart way as a group) you won't find any info in this book about getting around, or doing such duh! activities as wine-tasting routes, swimming holes, you-pick farms, sound-and-light shows. LP, if you're reading this: ever heard of the Puy-du-Fou? Everyone in Europe seems to have been there!
