Our review

Having travelled quite a bit of the UK and Europe in campervans and motorhomes over the years we tend not to buy guide books, however this is so much more than a guide book.

It's well written, in Martin's chatty style, and includes details of 26 touring routes. Each one has a general description of the area covered by the route and its attractions, together with a notes about driving the route. All of this being enlivened with anecdotes from Martin of his experiences en route and some great photos. Each area described has a map showing the route, campsites and aires to stay at, and suggestions for things to see along the route or nearby.

The introduction to the book has very useful information and advice for those who may be visiting France for the first time or are unfamiliar with using a motorhome or campervan in France. 

In conclusion, this is a book that we can highly recommend to anyone looking for inspirational drives through France - slowly, of course!
