FOR visitors to the Dordogne a guidebook is essential because the choice of places to visit is immense.
Almost every hilltop is crowned with a castle or chateau and the villages and towns hold many delights waiting to be discovered.
A popular guidebook series is the Michelin Green Guides and the one for the Dordogne, Berry and Limousin offers a wealth of information.
This guide provides you with touring guides for the car so a regular map will also be necessary, as well as details of where to eat, a calendar of events and a bit of historical background.
With its distinctive narrow page width, which personally I find a little cumbersome, there is an alphabetical list of sights around the regions.
The bigger towns in the area are featured in depth for example Bergerac is dealt with over five pages.
And the information is detailed with recommended places to eat, a town plan and contact details for many of the attractions.
A useful feature is the listing of admission times and charges for many of the places at the back of the book.
As you would expect from Michelin maps feature prominently with over 30 touring guides and 20 town plans.
The Green Guide for the Dordogne, Berry and Limousin is well laid out, simple to read and provides the visitor with plenty of ideas.
