For a good time in Languedoc, read this book
on January 27, 2002
The mark of a good travel book is not just the durability of the cover, although that is important; it is also a function of the quality of the research.
This book has both. Not only is the cover tough yet remarkably pliable, but the contents are well written and well researched. While I was in Languedoc over Christmas, Catlos never left my side - my wife and I ate with him, drove with him. Heck, we even followed his advice on where to spend the night. In fact, we even started calling the book "the Catlos"! We felt that the book was a friend who was guiding us through this mysterious and deeply foreign landscape.
My wife found his tips for female travellers to be especially helpful and considered. To be frank, not many guidebooks consistently point out where one might purchase certain feminine necessities.
I highly recommend this book and suggest that anyone travelling to the region purchase a copy. It'll become like a good pal - albeit one with a flexible laminated cover.
