What others say about About-France.com

Thinking of heading to France this year, or already booked a holiday there? Below, I've picked 10 websites that focus exclusively, or chiefly, on France - which should help you fix or enrich your trip.....
   About-France.com bills itself as "more than just a tourist guide to France..." - which is certainly true. ...  There's a vast amount of useful practical information - for example on tipping, leading free tourist attractions, and the latest on speed cameras and breathalyser laws. The regional summaries, which include rundowns of their main tourist attractions, are also helpful......

     And the winner is...I'm going to go with About-France.com, for being both inspirational and practical

Just a quick note to thank you for your excellent website. I'm preparing for my first trip to the Continent, and your website has become my most trusted reference. The information is sufficiently, but not excessively, detailed, and the tone is informative and helpful, with just the right amount of opinion. Your biases are out in the open, clearly stated, and nicely parsed.  Thanks!

As recommended on Brocantes France website    
I was having a browse of some websites I have saved over the years.
I frequently return to this one, as it is full of useful links about just about everything you need to see and do in France. I probably picked it up on this forum - but it is well worth an airing.
