Landscapes of the Costa Brava

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


'The Costa Brava - literally the 'rugged coast', in reference to the rocky, inhospitable nature of much of the shore - runs from the French border southwards towards Barcelona. Behind the coast lie the Serralada Litoral and Serralada Prelitoral. These ranges include such varied landscapes as the extraordinary conglomerate pinnacles of Montserrat, the dormant volcanoes of the Garrotxa and the subalpine heights of the Montseny. It is this very variety, coupled with its proximity to Barcelona and the coastal towns, that makes the hinterland of the Costa Brava so attractive to walkers

Landscapes of Croatia

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


From the northernmost shores of the Kvarner Gulf, southwards all the way to Dubrovnik, this guide covers Croatia’s Adriatic coast, eleven of the myriad islands and two inland areas. It includes the Mljet, Plitvice Lakes, Krka and Paklenica national parks and Biokovo and Ucka nature parks, and mentions five of Croatia’s six World Heritage sites. Happily, these bald though impressive facts describe one of the most beautiful and beguiling countries in Europe. Contrasts and diversity sum up Croatia: tall forests, wind-combed prickly thornbush and juniper on the stony uplands, the miraculous waterfalls in the Plitvice Lakes and Krka national parks, the aridity of the karst landscapes, modern tourist resorts and timeless old villages, the deserted Krajina region and the intensively cultivated Neretva delta

Landscapes of Cyprus

This book covers Greek (southern) Cyprus.

Landscapes of the Dolomites

Price: 14.99

Quantity:  


Gentle green valleys and towering limestone pinnacles: the Dolomites are a holiday paradise for lovers of the countryside. This comprehensive guide covers all aspects of the area — history, legends, customs, food, art and architecture, transport and other practicalities. The book is an ideal companion for motorists, walkers and cyclists, but even those who go for the skiing season will find it useful, since lift opening times (summer and winter) are given together with prices.Rather different from the usual Sunflower guide, this book has been translated from the German for the ‘Landscapes’ Series. Its coverage is far wider than is usual in our guides — it contains lots of general information, from history to restaurants (some recommended restaurants are listed in the Index, under the relevant town or village).
The format is different, too: instead of separate car tours and walks, each chapter covers a specific area, with detailed information about the various towns and villages

Landscapes of Fuerteventura

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


Fuerteventura is different from all the other islands in the Canaries. Being the closest to Africa, there's a definite taste of the Sahara about it. The countryside is lonely but warm, bleak but friendly and, in its own way, beautiful. Beaches are what Fuerteventura is all about; mile upon mile of untouched golden sand, great billowing white sand dunes, foaming surf, and quiet turquoise coves. Even though the landscape changes little, it's pleasant to tour Fuerteventura by car, since there's little traffic. This updated third edition is an ideal introduction to the island.

Landscapes of Guernsey

Price: 7.99

Quantity:  


An ideal introduction for the first-time visitor, this book also provides new ideas for those who come year after year. Apart from marvellous coastal scenery that's been compared to that of Cornwall and Brittany, there is much to explore of the island's past. For example, you could follow some of Guernsey's 'green lanes' and 'water lanes' ­ centuries-old paths once used by pack-horses and donkeys, or follow a route that takes in the relics of prehistoric burial grounds as well as remnants of the German Occupation during World War II. Tim Earl, a local resident and leader of guided walks on the island, also an expert on the island's bird life, updated the previous edition and this new fourth edition incorporates amendments recorded by a member of Sunflower's staff in 2007

Landscapes of Ibiza and Formentera

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


Until the sixties, Ibiza belonged to the Ibizans, and only a few artists, poets and writers lived in this paradise. Then the flower-children arrived, the hippies and drop-outs. In the last 30 years however, mass tourism has taken over and unfortunately destroyed much of the charm of Ibiza and Formentera. But not everything on the islands has been spoiled. ‘Bed and burgerbar’ building has reached saturation point, and a visit to the pine islands’ (the ‘Pityussae’, as the Greeks called them) is still worthwhile today. There’s an unending wealth of hidden beauty spots to be discovered, and this new edition of the book helps you to find the best of Ibiza and Formentera, whether you travel by car, bicycle, or on foot.

These exciting archaeological finds will be special attractions on all your excursions.

Landscapes of the Italian Lakes

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


The Italian Lakes have long been a 'must' for holidaymakers, inspired by their dramatic beauty. These great expanses of water, bound to the north by high mountains and stretching down towards the Lombardy Plain, all resulted from glacial activity. This has created distinctive 'micro' landscapes, whereby each lake retains its own character and special aura. While the term 'Italian Lakes' generally refers to Maggiore, Lugano, Como and Garda, there are many other, smaller lakes, some of which we have included on our tours and walks.
