It's the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in June 2014. Also known as Operation Overlord, the Allied landings on the beaches of Normandy in northern France turned the tide of the Second World War. We've noticed that quite a few of our clients have either just done a Normandy Beaches tour, or are off on one immediately after they leave us.
If you are interested in Second World War history, don't think that the Loire Valley is just about chateaux. We can introduce you to more recent historical events (as well as show you a chateau or two...). Email us if you would like a tour that includes the history of our own times and an insight into how the Second World War changed France. (Note that we do not organise tours of the Normandy Landing Beaches.)
