Sharon worked for both the British Civil Service (Ministry of Defence) and for a variety of UK and US commercial companies. She has also been a sub aqua diving instructor. It is her love of Normandy and a deep interest in its history that has led her to learn about this fascinating region.
It is a source of continuing pleasure and pride for us that over 70% of our clients take our tours and stay in our home following the personal recommendation of others.
We are lucky enough to be able to offer high quality accommodation, meals and transportation as part of your tour. This is not only convenient and very competitively priced but has also proved to be popular as “a cut above the rest” and a very enjoyable, sociable experience. As part of this comprehensive package we offer pre-tour “background” presentations (either pre-recorded or an after dinner talk) which we regard as an essential part of the educational experience. Audio visual packages are provided en route between tour locations making best use of your time on tour. We have carefully prepared maps and diagrams of the tour locations to enhance your understanding of these world changing historical events.
The events on the beaches of Normandy on DDay, around St Mere Eglise, Utah, Omaha, Point du Hoc, will come alive for you with Eddie and Sharon "Chateau de Beaulieu Historic Tours"
