Following the success of New Map Italy, this book is the ultimate visual guide to the finest hotels and travel experiences France has to offer.
Today’s discerning traveler is looking not merely for luxury but for a unique experience. But in this age of low-cost flights and easy travel, how do you avoid the crowds and find the hidden gems? Not via sponsored search results or thousands of indistinguishable reviews. What you need is on-the-ground, in-person, tried-and-trusted knowledge.
In this new guide to France, Herbert Ypma surprises and delights with his unequaled eye for detail and his unerring ability to judge what makes the difference between a good experience and a truly memorable one. The numerous experiences and tips that he maps out across the length and breadth of France fall into four key categories: staying in character, eclectic experiences, legend for lunch, and convincing context.
Featuring more than ninety experiences and tips, from unique places to stay and the best spots for authentic French cuisine to historical must-sees and quirky one-offs, New Map France is the ideal travel companion for a trip to the most visited country on the planet.
