"The lighthouse of Gatteville" Gatteville-le-Phare by Mikebond

Gatteville-le-Phare Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 32 photos

Gatteville-le-Phare ("Gatteville-the-Lighthouse") is a small village at the very North-East of the paeninsula of Cotentin, not far from Barfleur and Saint-Pierre-Eglise. The high lighthouse is its only attraction. My parents and I climbed it and my father took wonderful slides that I will upload here.

    Gatteville and Boulogne sur mer - two of my favourite places! Nice Tips. I am glad the cheese shop is still there.

    This lighthouse was used in the brilliant film Diva. It has a lot more than 100-200 steps -- there are 365 steps, and 52 windows.
