Cadogan’s stunning guide to Gascony and the Pyrenees takes you deep into a fascinating region that is home to both Gascons and Basques. This is a place for lazy touring and with Cadogan as your guide. However, of six books purchased for a recent trip, this book had the most 'nuggets' and useful recommendations. For example, in the section on Pau, a sidebar discusses Jurancon wine growers in the nearby town of Monein. This knowledge may be normal to folks in South West France, but is not discussed in other guidebooks such as the Rough Guide. 16 people found this helpful.

The South of France is the classic luxury destination where everyone longs to be. In this fully updated and revised edition, Cadogan weaves through the landscapes that inspired Van Gogh, Cézanne, Matisse, and Renoir, covering a swathe of the country from the Alps to the Pyrenees. The authors, who lived in France for many years, get to the heart of the region. They reveal the peaceful lavender fields and rolling hills of Provence, and explore its contrasting cities-- the salty, bustling port of Marseilles and the elegant university town of Aix-en-Provence. The guide also covers the glamourous French Riviera--where the Cannes film festival is held each year, and Monaco, where dukes and millionaires gamble in the casinos. Alongside tempting restaurant reviews, exhaustive travel information and maps, and thorough listings of where to stay, the guide offers an unsurpassed commentary on the world-renowned wine regions of the Rhône, Orange, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

I've owned a number of guide books for southern France and examined many more and this is the one I would pick if I could only take one. Rick Steves Provence is good but does not completely cover Provence. After finding too much out of date information in a "new" Lonely Planet I don't trust what I read there. Michelin Green Guide contains valuable information but the organization is troublesome. When I travel to other places I'll look at the guides by Facaros and Pauls first.
Very good and comprehensive, it helped me very much on my trip solo to the Languedoc. Complemented by Let's Go France, it was a winning combination.
This book is an excellent choice when travelling to Provence. I have ordered other books by the same authors from you when I was travelling to Italy. I was equally pleased. The delivery was on time and the condition of the books was excellent. I will definitely order in the future.

If I wanted a History Book, I could have easily gone to the library. Firstly, the book was published in 2003, which is almost 10 years old. Much has happened with regard to the Euro, and all other major costs and fees. True all the history remains, but the more current edition of the South of France was not shipped, and that may have been more contemporary, and beneficial to the traveller, although I doubt it since there are so few prices to restaurants, hotels, and places of interest that would be beneficial. It is just not fun reading!
My husband and I are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel once or twice a year. I always plan for our trips by buying and studying 3 guidebooks, one with lots of pictures, the Blue Guide to the site in question, and if available, the Cadogan guide. Most guide books contain practical information and cover the major tourist attractions almost like a top-ten list. The Cadogan guides, written by individuals who have lived in the region, delve much deeper, providing coverage of smaller, little known places that are fun to find and explore. I know of no better way to discover and experience local life and color. We are independent travellers, almost always booking flights, cars, and reservations on our own on the web. We also enjoy delving into places off the beaten track. The detail in Cadogan is much more encompassing than that in any other guide we have used. The driving directions are usually right on the money. Its literary, architectural, and historical information is particularly helpful. We have discovered many little known gems because of these guides. If you prefer group tours that stop for short periods at several locations, Loire and other Cadogan books are too detailed. But if you have the time to wander a bit, these are the guides for you.

Regarding South of France specifically, its coverage of artists, writers, ancient ruins, food and wine, history, villages, beaches, and local color is superb. Vignettes are provided for each area on topics of interest unique to the site. An added bonus is the enjoyment of rereading the guide to stimulate memories of where we've been. Can't recommend South of France highly enough if you have the time for an extended visit.
Though many in the U.S. are more familiar with hearing names like Fodor's or Rough Guide, Cadogan Guides are among the best you will ever find! I orginally checked out this series because the guide series I wanted was sold out. However, as soon as I began flipping through these guides, I was hooked. You will not find a higher-quality product in any price range!

Full of cultural insight and truly HELPFUL tourist info, Cadogan gives you a feel of what or where exactly you are visiting and why it is important. Cleverly written, the editors are able to infuse a dose of humor without detracting from the factual presentation.

This guide will not only give you all the maps, directions, tips, and hints for success on your trip to Southern France, but will actually teach you enough so that you don't HAVE to feel like a tourist.

Witty, insightful, and affordable, Cadogan Guides remain the best buy for your money. They will also work great as a cultural supplement to any bare-bones guides you're taking.
If you are looking for a travel guide that not only provides an overview of the most important sights, places to eat, stay, etc., but does so in a contextualized setting where you also have at your fingertips a detailed description of the region's history, art, architecture, culture, and cuisine, then the Cadogan series will be the perfect match. This is the kind of travel guide that you can read just for fun, to learn about a place and its history, even if you have no intention of or opportunity to visit the place in person. Once you've flipped through its pages, though, chances are it will have whet your appetite to get on the next plane and explore everything you've just read about. As with the Cadogan books on Italy and Spain by the same authors, this book gives an excellent detailed summary of the political and social history of southern France, along with chapters on the area's different cultures, languages, and arts. This introductory material is followed by a series of chapters devoted to each sub-region, including an unusually strong emphasis on the Languedoc in addition to Provence.
