    Yes, France is correct. Last trip's map was a Michelin one only covering the north of France, totally
    inadequate for finding small villages in, for example, Normandy. Knowing that this was likely to be a
    problem, had printed out 'maps' from michelin.com, which could usually find the places but only produced
    minimal information, like connecting roads, to enable it to be related to the 
    printed map. Perhaps this will
    improve in time. Finding good maps for many places online continues to be a challenge, I find. My
    experience in France is that no map easily available has all the local roads, 
    or the smaller villages. This
    includes consulting road atlases.
