My Book Shop for YOUR perfect Holiday

I have created this holiday book and 'other things' shop because despite all the information I provide you with or the information you can obtain from other websites, there is still something magical about taking books and travel guides on holiday with you to thumb through along the way!

Whether you are interested in discovering more about South West France or you wish to find out about and try french cooking or you are looking for accommodation along the way, then this is the right place to visit.

I might just have the odd 'girls' novel to offer. Every good summer needs at least one (trashy!?) novel……..

As I like cooking, I thought it might be a good idea to include some french cooking books. You might want to get in the mood for your break here in France and start with some french recipes at home.

And of course, where there is french food there must be some french wine, so I have included some of them as well.

Maybe you would like to learn a bit of basic french, so language books are included as well.

Basically I decided to offer you things I would probably buy in preparation for my holiday.

So it is quite possible I will add things here and there.

In partnership with, has carefully chosen a selection of books, travel guides and more.

I sincerely hope these books will enhance your enjoyment of your break.

Enjoy the browsing and I hope you will find what you are looking for

Now here is something very important if you are coming to France. From the 1st July 2012 you will have to have a Breathalyser kit in your car, in fact you need 2. It's the law and you will be fined if you are stopped and you don't have them. Should you hire a car, make sure there are 2 kits in the car as it is your responsibility and not the car hire firm.Also, you have to make sure that they are France approved, as you will be able to find different kits on the market.

To make it easier for you, just click on the following link and it will take you straight to Amazon where you can order the right one.
