LE SHUTTLE GDE VILLAGES N FRAN by Andrew Sanger
With the opening of the Channel Tunnel, the villages of northern France will become increasingly accessible. This is a practical, informative handbook describing 100 of the most picturesque and interesting villages and small towns of northern France - Picardy, Normandy, Champagne, Ardennes, Lorraine, Alsace and Flanders. Each region begins with an introduction capturing the essence of the area, its character, cuisine and countryside, and some of the larger towns and cities that should not be missed. From there Andrew Sanger turns his attention to the villages and small towns, evoking their charm, highlighting their most attractive features. Villages may be of interest because of a local legend, a good cheese, an exceptional cider or fine wine, a famous or infamous son, or perhaps a particular restaurant. The author's vast personal knowledge of the area allows him to go straight to the heart of rural France and its enduring appeal.
