Britain's most established B&B guide to France is aimed at independent travellers seeking a special place to stay. Travelling the length and breadth of the country, our French team has selected over 750 B&Bs. Fall in love with a place and stay longer, change your route and stop off somewhere new - there's great flexibility here. An intriguing range of bed and breakfasts is included: ski chalets, chateaux, farmhouses, treehouses, pieds-a-terre in lovely old cities and studio apartments in tiny mountain hamlets. We meet a wide variety of owners too, from those running authentic old-style 'chambres d'hotes' to creative young couples opening eco-chic B&Bs. What they have in common is their devotion to making you feel special. They can also tell you about gastronomic breaks and wine tours, painting, cookery and language courses, and give you the low down on all the best places. "French B&B" is great value for money: 300 of these houses have double rooms for 45-65 a night.

Alastair has built a team of talented editors who are as committed as he is to the search for authenticity and personality in places to stay. They are also 'driving' the world's first carbon 'neutral' publishing company; the search for a reduced ecological footprint is a serious one. The company has won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category, an award from Business Commitment to the Environment and a Green Apple Award and moved to its own eco-offices in January 2006.
