English guidebooks?

What are the best English guidebooks for the entire Arles route to Puente la Reina? I've got the two CSJ books but am looking for something with reasonable maps. Anything similar to the Brierley guidebooks out there?


Go with the above, the Miami Miam guide is designed that if you do not know French it is still quite easy to use. The other book has good maps and I used it to cheat on one occasion when If I followed the route I would have had to walk 17 km on quite heavy paths, but instead had a gentle 4km walk along a quiet road. Make sure that the latest one you buy offline is the most up to date, I had a January 2013 copy, while a walking companion got his from the Foyle's online service this year and they sent him the 2010 edition, he had a lot of problems with the route in places not matching his book.

Bon Chemin
