Coupel Valérie

I was born and raised in Avranches, Normandy in 1977. After High School, I decided to study in the two matters that I love best : Languages and Art History. So I decided to live in Paris five years to study Art History; then, in London to work as an «au pair» girl and learn English.
Back in Normandy, I started to work as a guide mainly in Mont Saint Michel but also other sites as the Normandy Landing Beaches, Caen, Saint-Malo, Granville, etc. I can guide any type of groups (adults, children, foreigners) but for the last 3 years, I specialized in private day-tours in Normandy and Brittany.
After 16 years of guiding, I can say that, more than a job, it has become a real passion. What makes me more and more enthousiastic is meeting new people all the time, discovering their culture, and having them discover the French way of life, not only through sites and historical treasures, but also through local food, special treats, places that only locals know and, doing so, trying to reveal what makes the French culture so unique.
Let me introduce you to the kindness of local people and the authentic beauty of my region !
