Guide Book for Brittany & Normandy ?

Hi, I have about a week in Brittany/Normandy and will have a car. Any recommendations for one guide book that covers both areas? I'd rather not tote 2 books around if possible. I saw that Rough Guide has one, but I have no experience with them.

I have used the Michelin Green Guides and while I know most like them best, I'm just not crazy about them. I don't like the way they "feel" (too tightly bound?) -- not the info they contain. Crazy, but true.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I'm going there in May and I'm taking Lonely Planet's "Brittany
and Normandy" for sure and then
tear-outs from various out-of-date
guides. Also have a Thomas Cook
Brittany book that is comprehensive.

If you're driving the AA (British AAA) have some guides to Normandy and Brittany that aren't bad.

And if binding is a problem, the AA have some spiral bound guides.

You might consider: "Drive Around Brittany and Normandy," a Thomas Cook book.

I, too, like the Thomas Cook guide. It has great suggestions for driving trips.

Thank you to all. I have a AAA spiral bound guide for Paris that I really like didn't know they had one for Brittany/Normandy.

I'll also check out Lonely Planet and Thomas Cook on amazon.com.

Another thumbs up for the Thomas Cook Driving Around guides. We have them for all the European areas they publish.

My first time I used the rough guide and for restaurants the Gastronigue and the Pierre deux books on Brittany and Normandy and everyone was a winner!
