Twenty years of experience have gone into creating this trusted glove-pocket guide. This seductive collection of over 360 hotels, châteaux and auberges – beautiful, unusual, individual – have been selected and inspected in the best Sawday’s tradition: they are here because we like them. Hotels from all over France are featured, including 48 new for this edition, from catered ski chalets in the Pyrenees to beachside retreats on the Côte d’Azur. All are chosen for their character and warmth, great hospitality and fine wines and food – often hosted at the communal table. Over 180 places have rooms for two at €100 or less – or treat yourself to a slice of luxury.
Fresh and honest write-ups, clear symbols and quick reference indices make this guide to Special Places to Stay a pleasure to read and the perfect gift for a Francophile friend.
