some like it plain 26 mars 2001
Par marzipan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Having just returned form a brief sojourn outside of Avignon(one of numerous visits over the years to the South of France) I found the Green Guide as indispensable as ever.
These oddly shaped, distinctive volumes dispel whatever remains of Peter Mayle's cute and condescending presentation of the region. Here instead is an ancient and noble land of sunlight and wind, which has created strangely shaped stones and mountains surrounding ancient olive groves,endless vineyards, wide rivers, and more Roman remains than can be found in Rome. The magical Middle Ages are here, too, as well as the quintessential visions of Cezanne, the native son, and Van Gogh, the wandering Dutchman. As your eyes do the looking, this highly useful green book will filll you in with all the information you will need on plants, stones (manbuilt and otherwise) weather,rivers, geology, and above all history.
What you see around you is explicated with an appropriate Gallic resserve, accuracy and precision, so that you can meditate on the land without any editorial interference. The format of the Green Guides is unique, reflecting their self-confidence that, like Popeye, and all unique creations, they are what they are.
And the small maps included in the descriptions of many of the most important sites are, as befitting a maker of tires and maps, perfect. If you love France, you will love this book and all the others defining that land for travelers from near and far.

I LIVE IN FRANC E- GREEN GUIDES ALWAYS RELIABLE 19 mai 2005
Par Liam H Dooley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have lived in France for over two years, and have traveled to over 50 places all over the country.

I have chosen the Provence Green Guide to review because it's my favorite region; though all of the guides are similar. I might also mention that I have not actually seen the English version of the Green Guide - I only use the French ones.

That being said, I have tried and looked at MANY guides of France. The Green Guide (or Guide Vert) is the best for FRANCE. For other countries this is not the case.

The maps are useful; the rating system is very, very useful (and pretty close in my opinion); and the sites they recommend are very good. There is also a recommended walking path for each city map - a sort of top place to walk around if you are rushed, during a train layover for example. The many photos of sites, buildings, and cities is nice; they are often a critical deciding factor in my travel choices. Though more often than not the photos dont do justice to the quality of the fantastic places in France.

There are a few things of course i don't like (in terms of selections of sites et al) but nothing is perfect.

Since the Green Guide is from a French company (Michelin) obviously they can get a lot of good information and insight into the guides. Best of all, they have a regional focus. Since I live in France, my need for a national book is minimal; I only go to more or less one region at a time over a long weekend or week.

The Green Guides let me take my time, give me travel ideas that a France-wide guide would not give, and is pretty reliable.

On a separate note, i do not use any of the times for the sites; in France, opening times are unreliable. You are best off using the net or just taking your chances.

In the end, whatever your guide, France is a fantastic country for tourism and it's also wonderful to live in.

Not What They Used to Be 30 octobre 2010
Par kclark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Though still filled with good information, if this book is any indication the Green Guides have been "dumbed down" and reorganized to the point of near un-usability. The older Green Guides were always my go-to guides for planning the itinerary of a trip. Sure I had to look elsewhere for hotels & restaurants, but I could always find readable maps and a well organized guide to the places I wanted to visit. This book is organized into what look like randomly created "zones" which make it nearly impossible to plan a coherent route or to quickly find a particular town or sight - instead of simply looking places up alphabetically, now you have to know which zone it's in and then try to find it, or to use the (not very good) index to find places. It remains to be seen whether this book will be useful once I'm on the ground in Provence, but I've given up trying to use it for planning. Thanks be to online used bookstores - I just ordered a used copy of the 1991 edition for $1 from Abebooks.

Michelin Green Guide: Provence (Michelin Green Guides)
Anyone traveling to Provence should purchase ths guide with one caveat. The guide has its own interpretation of where the Provence is. Most Provence guides include the Cote d'Azur and the Gorge de Verdon. This guide does not, The tours shown on the back cover are not well described in the text. One is better advised to use the tour explanations that correspond to the tours indictated in the front cover map.

I still recommend, but it's declining. Needs adult supervision. 3 janvier 2012
Par East Villager - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
While I still think this series is the best choice because of its detail and authenticity, there are a number of negatives that Michelin needs to fix. I say this not only with respect to the Provence Guide, but also in relation to the Paris Guide, both of which I used extensively in the last two years.

For example, both guides need to sharpen and expand their indexes so they are truly comprehensive. It is maddeningly difficult to guess where a description of a certain site is found in some cases. Take a look at the entries under "Museums" in the Paris guide and you'll see what I mean: many important museums are missing and you'll have a devil of a time finding their descriptions if you don't know in which chapter to look.

The other glaring weakness is the sharp decline in accuracy of the turn-by-turn directions for some of the walking tours. One of the most common errors is confusion between left and right when telling readers which way to walk. I cannot believe this has happened, but it has, and the directions and walking tour maps when taken together frequently left me standing at an intersection scratching my head.

And the Provence guide contains Michelin's typical amusing penchant to give 3 stars to great views. Yes, great views are nice, but "worth a journey"? Not in my book. My cynical explanation for this is that Michelin wants to sell tires, and so encourages readers to drive more kilometers so they wear their tires out faster.

Come on, Michelin, be the best that you can be.

(A note to those who complain that Provence doesn't encompass the Riviera: of course it doesn't; buy the Riviera Guide.)
