We use ToPo France.

Good but serious money.

I have always used the A4 Michelin Map of France - Scale: 1: 200000 (1cm = 2km) - never a problem as the large format helps with route planning. There is a smaller version as well, but as I say, larger pages make for easier planning.

The Michelins work fine for most.

However, we Greenlane a lot and need to be accurate - that is where the ToPo France come in...

IGN maps are the way to go the French equivalent to our OS land ranger maps

Ah, now I understand. As the man says - "IGN maps are the way to go".
