Description
Building on the success of The Heart of England, The Heart of France offers an insider's view of the best of this beautiful country. This intimate guide serves up sophisticated boutiques, comfortable inns, and delectable restaurants. Not a traditional travel guide, this book is as beautiful to look at as it is informative -- like a photo album from a French friend revealing her favorite out-of-the-way spots.

Visit the Hotel Printania, in Brittany, where guests are greeted by a staff wearing traditional Breton dress and guest rooms are furnished with local antiques. Tour the grounds of Roserie de L'Hay, the world's first garden devoted entirely to roses. Stop in at Louise Nott, a hat shop in the ancient village of Saint-Remy-de-Provence, where you can enjoy a cup of tea while searching for the perfect chapeau. Or visit the Zuber factory and Rixheim's wallpaper museum, where visitors see murals of exotic places and fantasy landscapes from the early nineteenth century.

The perfect gift for anyone planning a trip to France, as well as any Francophile or armchair traveler.
