For detailed information about a specific region of France, or inspiration for your trip, the regional tourist boards in France are an excellent resource. Their comprehensive websites offer information on everything from upcoming events to campsites and details of interesting things to see in their areas.

If you prefer a paper brochure, just get in touch with the relevant tourist board and they will send you brochures and other useful information through the post. For example the Burgundy tourism board provides an excellent range of high-quality maps featuring vineyards, bike routes, walks and history, which they will send to you at no charge.
