Letter to Viz comic “My husband heard somewhere that planning a holiday was half the fun. So this year we planned two holidays and didn’t go on either of them”.
Here are some books to whet your appetite for the area:
For a general guidebook on France we like the DK Eyewitness travel series. Their one on France is called, hey guess what, “France.” Great photos and maps. Lonely Planet is also good.
For a bit more regional information DK Eyewitness Travel also do a book called “Dordogne, Bordeaux & the southwest coast”.
