Guided tour

L'Escapade de Marijac - Guest house - Lyons-la-Forêt - 2nd world war

If only trees could talk!

Whilst you calmly stroll through the quiet streets of Lyons or its surrounding forest, look around you and think to yourself, “I wonder what happened here during the days of war? What is the link between this village and secret agent 007, James Bond? Why was this area so important to Britain during both conflicts and why were the sounds of ‘Yankey Doodle Dandy’ and ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ significant during world war 2?”

If your answer is "I don't know", then come on a guided tour around the village and forest with Olek as your guide. Tours take approximately two hours.
15€ per adult, 8€ for the under 12s and free for the under 6s. Fixed price of £50 for up to 6 people. Larger groups can be accommodated with prior arrangement.

Since 2012 Olek has been studying the history of this area uncovering hidden or forgotten stories and has also been searching for relatives of allied airmen that either passed through the area or died when their planes were shot down.
