Christèle was born in the Loire Valley where she got her first taste of “old stones” in the numerous nearby castles. After studying languages, history and arts in Touraine, she went to Paris where she met her English husband. Between 1995 and 2011, she lived and worked in England. Back in France, she chose Bayeux, a city with exceptional history and heritage, with a charming environment and rich culture. For her personal pleasure, she started to research on Bayeux and its surroundings.
Her first job in Bayeux was to manage bookings for guided tours on the landing beaches. During this posting, many customers asked her for advice for a visit of the medieval Bayeux. She then realized, to her surprise, that no city tour was offered.
She got acquainted with Marie-Noëlle who was a volunteer in the same Bayeux association. Together in April 2014, they co-founded Discovery Walks Bayeux.
Christèle specializes in family visits with children and school / student outings.
