Synopsis

Insight Guide Southwest France is a comprehensive travel guide to this beautiful corner of France, with evocative photography bringing to life its people and landscape. Our inspirational Best of Southwest France section highlights the region's unmissable sights and experiences, while essays by local writers immerse you in the history, culture and way of life of this largely rural region, taking in its lush countryside, dramatic gorges, medieval villages, prehistoric cave art, and food and wine, with a range of special features homing in on topics such as truffles, the Basques and bullrunning. Fourteen Places chapters then take you on an inspirational trip from Bordeaux and the Southwest Coast, through the Basque Country and the Pyrenees, and on to French Catalonia on the shores of the Mediterranean. Plentiful full-colour maps show you the way around, with major sights and areas of interest plotted and cross-referenced to the text. Finally, the Travel Tips cover all your practical needs, with a wealth of information to help you plan your trip and our selection of the best hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars.
