Tourist Office Issues 7th Annual 100 Page France Discovery Guide

NEW YORK -- Under the promotional banner of "French Adventures," the French Government Tourist Office will be reminding travel agents and consumers alike that an adventure French-style might "spoil you for life."

With contributions from well-known travel writers and award-winning photographers, the seventh annual France Discovery Guide takes readers on a 100-page tour of Paris and the provinces and offers guidance on active holidays that explore the French way of life: biking in the vineyards, hiking in the national parks, horseback riding in Corsica, painting in art classes in Antibes or taking cooking classes in Provence to get some local color.

The guide also presents a selection of what it calls "great values" in transportation, accommodations and tours. The publication contains maps, a calendar of events and insider travel tips that will help visitors gain new perspective on what a French vacation can be.

Agents can obtain copies by calling the French Government Tourist Office agent hot line at (202) 293-6173 on the East Coast, (312) 751-7800 in the Midwest or (310) 271-6665 on the West Coast.

Clients who wish to receive a copy of the guide can call (202) 293-1815.
