France on Foot: Village to Village, Hotel to Hotel: How to Walk the French Trail System on Your Own
France on Foot details exactly how you - along with your friends or family - can combine the pleasures of walking cross-country through the forests, vineyards and villages of the French countryside with the sybaritic delights of eating in good restaurants and sleeping in comfortable hotels. Author LeFavour reveals a well kept secret: the French maintain a system of superb off-road footpaths that you can use to walk on your own for few days, a week or even a month. The Loire, Provence, the Alps, Normandy, the Dordogne - every region has thousands of miles of marked trails that are linked to the trails in other regions. This system is 110,000 miles long making foot travel possible, literally, anywhere in the country.
The book is full of information and strong opinions about France and the French. It offers as well many personal anecdotes gleaned from the author's trips on foot, and these stories will interest the walker and non-walker alike. But at base, France on Foot is a how-to book, the one resource you'll need before you take your own independent walking vacation in France.
