9780847846825: One Hundred & One Beautiful Small Towns in France (Rizzoli Classics)

A celebration of the most enchanting hamlets in France, now available in a popular format. Gorgeously illustrated as well as informative, One Hundred & One Beautiful Small Towns in France is a tour through the pleasures of the French countryside, a place where the pace slows, locals engage strangers in conversation, and every town presents a unique set of curiosities waiting to be discovered. Whether you are an armchair traveler or a Francophile planning another trip, this volume is the guide to the hidden treasures of France that proves once and for all that the heart of this popular travel destination lies in the countryside far from the grandeur and pomp of Paris. Wander the serpentine alleyways of the rockbound coastal fishing villages in Brittany and Normandy; explore medieval masterpieces in Alsace and order flammekueche, this region’s thin-crusted pizza; spend a day in the Ile-de-France, the green surround of Paris, and visit the magnificent Château de Versailles, or the palace at Fontainebleau, a treasure trove of mannerist delights. One Hundred & One Beautiful Small Towns in France is a map to the heart and soul of the French countryside, complete with a full appendix of restaurants, hotels, and shops to aid even the most seasoned travelers and Francophiles.

About the Author:

Simonetta Greggio was born in Italy, but her passion was always for France. She studied literature in Paris under Milan Kundera and has coauthored numerous lifestyle books, including Provence, Luberon, and La Cote d'Azur.

Review:

"Travel between hilltop hamlets in the Massif Central to rocky coastal fishing villages in Normandy to the standout beauty of Provence and the Cote d’Azur. The colour photos are breathtaking and each town has a page of information on local sites to explore, unique artworks to buy, local wines to savour and culinary delights to sample."
-FrenchDesire.com

"One Hundred and One Beautiful Small Towns in France is a stunning reminder of the rare beauty of France, a lavishly illustrated and informative tour through the French countryside and its most enchanting hamlets. . . This book is magical to read and a visual delight to admire, like holding all of France in your hands."
-NY JOURNAL OF BOOKS
