Go Slow France by Alastair Sawday is a visual feast.

This travel guide celebrates the Slow philosophy of embracing all that is local, natural, traditional, sensory and gratifying.

It provides a selection of special places to stay and includes tips for walking and bike riding in France and exploring the national and regional parks.

The guide is broken up into regions and provides detailed information on special places to stay in each region. Each entry is comprehensively described and illustrated with tantalizing colour photographs of not just the properties but also the owners, their families and their pets.

Each entry provides a vignette of the owners and their interpretation of the Slow movement.

Whether you are about to embark upon a trip to France or are just after an ‘armchair experience’ this book will be a welcome addition to your travel reading.
