Travel guide to Nouvelle - Aquitaine: the Gironde and Dordogne areas of SW France
This book is for all who want to explore the delightful area of Nouvelle-Aquitaine in south-west France, focusing on the Gironde and parts of the Dordogne regions. This is an anecdotal guide to many unique places of interest and as well as describing something of the towns, it takes the reader off the beaten track and into the beautiful countryside. In some cases, places of interest are referred to in both summer and winter months to illustrate how they differ outside of the tourist season.

An essential guide for both first time visitors and seasoned travellers to the area.

This small pocket sized guide to the SW France is a delight from beginning to end.
Annie Jefferies takes us on an anecdotal tour of pretty country towns, old villages, ancient castles and the beautiful rural scenery that has captured her heart.
I read this charming and humorous book with absolute pleasure.

I read this book in a day as I couldn’t put it down ; the local information is useful and very relevant if you are visiting the area , but I so enjoyed the little stories that unfolded along the 2 month journey and again during the winter visit ! I would have appreciated a basic map that would have illustrated the area and the relationship of one town to another . If the author is encouraged to write another book that would be my only suggestion
Thank you

This book is charming and a lovely read .It is very interesting if you are visiting this area of France, but it is also enjoyable to read the tales that intersperse the textual facts. I particularly enjoyed the illustrations . I am buying 10 copies to give to friends at Christmas !
