The South of France, a sun-drenched land of olive groves and lavender, grapevines and mimosa blossom, has bewitched painters, poets, and medieval popes. Its intoxicating light inspired Van Gogh, Cezanne and Matisse; its azure coast drew writers, reprobates and the beau monde of Europe. Cadogan's guide - passionate, opinionated, witty and informed - explores this enchanted region, from the glittering excesses of the Cote d'Azur to the untouched wilderness of the Languedoc-Roussillon; the crystalline beauty of the Provencal Alps to the edges of the Pyrenees. Along the way, no southern stone is left unturned: discover vertiginous villages perches; cypress-lined avenues and isolated coves; enjoy the region's finest bouillabaisse; or luxuriate in the heavenly scents of Provencal herbs.
Inside you will find: practical travel advice; over 600 hand-picked places to stay; over 450 restaurants, bars and cafes; 56 maps and plans; color touring-map section; stunning color photographs; vintners' tales and vineyard visits.
Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls are experts on France. They have lived there for many years and have now settled in the South. They are the authors of four French regional Cadogan guides and are co-authors of the country guide to France.
