Hello everyone,

I'm wondering does anyone know is it possible to purchase the Miam Miam Dodo Arles guide in the town itself? I am leaving Thur 16th and so can't be guarateed it will arrive on time to Ireland. I have the CSJ guide already.

Arles is a decent size agglomeration. You may want to purchase at FNAC, the leading French bookstore. You probably have plenty of time to buy online and retrieve the book at the local store.

I would say yes, but we do have a rule of thumb, that the local IGN map will always be sold out in the town it covers.

Arles is a nice town, with most of anything you might need.

Except the Francés
The independent publishing house Actes Sud has a big bookstore in central Arles on the Rhône quayside about 5 minutes from the van Gogh Foundation. According to their website their have it in stock, but you might want to ring and reserve it ahead for peace of mind (0033 490 49 56 77). The staff are mostly young and bright and I'd guess probably speak English if that's a help. It's open until 7pm every evening, and they have a pleasant café attached to the bookstore (and an arts cinema and gallery in the same complex).

Enjoy the Camargue next week

Bon chemin.

Having found guide books easily available in Le Puy en Velay for that route, I assumed it would be just as easy to find all I needed in Arles when I began that route. Every bookstore was sold out that particular year/month. I eventually picked up a guide at my third stop. A good idea to call ahead and if possible buy ahead.
