Reviews - What do customers think about Michelin Languedoc-Roussillon, France (Michelin Maps)?
Extremely thorough Jul 18, 2008
The Michelin maps are excellent. They are extremely detailed with a scale of 1 inch = 3.16 miles. With motorway exits and entrances for example, it's clearly marked in which directions they operate. It includes useful information like toll roads, petrol stations and even speed radar locations. I also like the insider information. Panoramic lookouts and scenic routes are all clearly indicated (the other regional maps that I considered didn't have this). However do be aware that unlike the broader regional Michelin maps, there are no indications of which towns and villages are of interest to tourists. (Although the Michelin Green series guidebooks list the map references for all places of interest).
This is essentially a regional map with only central Montpellier being shown in any detail.
One annoying thing is that the map is printed on both sides, so you're always flipping it over (which increases the risk of damaging or tearing it). It opens lengthways rather than widthways, which would be near-impossible to manoeuvre sitting in a car! Being double-sided also makes it less easy to navigate routes between the northern and southern parts of the region. Nevertheless, if you want to travel off the beaten track in this region, it's invaluable.
Excellent map May 19, 2008
We're headed to the Languedoc this fall and I'm glad I ordered this particular map. Many small roads and villages are listed. And it was very easy for us to map our route from Montpellier over to Caunes Minervois, the village we'll be staying in. Also shows the roads/highways to go over the border into Spain and Andorra.
