Go Slow France is the third book in Sawday's hugely successful Go Slow series. Discover 47 of France's most exquisite châteaux, B&Bs and hotels chosen as places to 'go slow'. Fresh writing, beautiful, professional photography and detailed maps to help plan your Slow journey through France.
You will find places of ravishing beauty: from Alpine chalet to Pyrenean mountain refuge, an utterly classic family château, a poet with yurts, a Brit in Provence whose bones have turned French through love of the place, people, food and wine, one of the founders of the first English gastropub who left swinging London to bring up a family in saner, healthier climes.
We celebrate the endearing eccentricities of these really special places to stay and the vivacious hospitality of their owners. Visit them and you will drink wine from their own vineyards, eat vegetables from their own potagers and scoff all manner of traditional and oh-so-French cuisine. Bon Voyage!
