Review

The warmth and friendliness of rural Quebec become almost tangible
through these detailed guides. With 600-plus establishments listed,
access to comfortable, quality accommodation is made easy. The guides
cover bed-and-breakfasts, country inns, farm stays and excursions,
country and city homes, and tables champetre (country-style dining).
Each establishment listed is accredited by Agricotours, an association
that uses regular inspections to assure compliance with its standards
and code of ethics. The listings emphasize a family atmosphere and
quality in such services as security, cleanliness, and comfort. A
multi-star rating system is used.

The detailed listings give all the information necessary to make a
selection and a reservation, and are supplemented by a small
black-and-white sketch of the establishment. For each of the
country-style dining rooms, a mini-menu is included. Symbols are used to
pack a lot of detail into each listing, such as whether English or
French are spoken somewhat or fluently, wheelchair access, distance to
the nearest grocery store and restaurant, sightseeing and recreational
activities in the area, and much more.

Maps, geographic groupings, an index, and a cluster of color snapshots
of some visually attractive properties round out these practical guides.
