In February every year there is great tension amongst the top chefs in France as they await the publication of the new Michelin Guide France –
when they learn if they get or retain the coveted Michelin star which marks their food out from the rest.
Enjoy the best of hotels and restaurants France has to offer, from tiny bistros to luxury hotels, with the MICHELIN Guide France ! This year 4300 restaurants and 4500 hotels have been selected by the team of independent Michelin inspectors for the constant quality of their services. MICHELIN Guide France caters for individual tastes and budgets: Bib Gourmand for an affordable and enjoyable meal or starred restaurants for special occasions…You can also choose a hotel in all confidence from cosy guesthouses to luxury hotels. To add to your Michelin experience, you will also find a lively introduction to big cities, a themed and regional index, detailed mapping as well as information on tourist sights and attractions.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this guide is only for rich gourmets – plenty of other content will be of use to any visitor to France – Good value restaurants and places to stay, good street maps of may cities and other advice for the visitor/tourist. We find it indispensible when the SatNav, smartphone etc fail or have no signal – and there is something very reassuring about taking a printed guide in your suitcase.
