Shared by the Gascons, Basques and Catalans, this idiosyncratic southwest corner of France has more than the beauty of the towering Pyrenees to buttonhole your attention. Discover some of Europe's best surfing beaches, transcendent stained glass in Auch cathedral, armagnac distilleries, delicious Basque villages in emerald meadows, monster-filled Romanesque cloisters, old-fashioned seaside gentility in Biarritz and Bayonne, and the tiny mountaintop principality of Andorra. In an increasingly homogenized world, quirks and passions thrive here with all the panache of d'Artagnan, and this new edition of Cadogan's witty guide ensures you miss none of the fun.

This guide offers practical travel advice, over 400 hand-picked places to stay, over 250 restaurants, bars and cafes, the best mountain walks, drives, climbs and ski centers as well as local recipes, vineyard and wine-tasting.

From the Back Cover:

Barely touched by modern development, Gascony and the Pyrenees are the quintessence of provincial France. Passionate and more than a little flamboyant, this region has, like its famous fictional son d'Artagnan, a delightfully idiosyncratic appeal. Home to the Gascons, Basques and Catalans, it is a land where difference is embraced. From the breathtaking beauty of the Pyrenees to the affluent gentility of Biarritz, from the isolated principality of Andorra to the cosmopolitan chic of Toulouse, this fully updated and expanded Cadogan guide takes the reader on a marvelous journey. Along the way are magnificent cathedrals and moutaintop villages, delicious food and wine to be savored and some of the best surfing to be found anywhere in Europe.
Inside you will find: practical travel advice; revised and updated information; a brand new chapter on Toulouse; wine routes, vintages and chateau visits; 30 maps and plans; color touring-map section; informative, discerning listings with over 250 restaurants, bars and cafes.
