"I brought this book based on the number of good reviews it already had and I have not been disappointed. I have not finished reading it yet but so far the information has been easy to read, well explained and extremely useful. Some of the information is common sense and reinforces what I already thought which means I know I am on the right tracks! The rest is good information for anyone looking to run a gite or B&B in France and I would highly recommend it." - Anne, Amazon
