Over 5 million Britons cross the Channel each year. With the opening of the Channel Tunnel it is estimated that within 15-20 years this number will have doubled. Research shows that as many as 35 per cent of the total number of current visitors are either day-trippers or people who cross the Channel for short breaks. With this book, Marc and Kim Millon have produced a concise, critical guide to small hotels and good restaurants in northern France and Belgium. In five sections they deal in turn with the Nord-Pas de Calais region, Upper Normandy, Champagne, Picardy and Belgium, identifying hotels and restaurants tellingly frequented by the locals themselves and offering the traveller good value (at whatever level), character and a friendly welcome. They range from good small hotels, luxury hotels for really special weekends away, family-run auberges and well-run chambres d'hote (French-style bed and breakfast) to restaurants and fermes auberges - farmhouse inns, often set in delightful surroundings and offering farmhouse meals and sometimes also accommodation. The restaurants are chosen for their atmosphere and welcome, as well as for the quality of their food, while those offering authentic regional food and local produce receive special mention. Whether the object is sightseeing, shopping or simply to get away from it all, this book will take you there.
