Most drive through the village of Gatteville immediately towards the lighthouse. The village itself is small and a typical Normandian coastal small village. Remarkable buildings are the church, a small chapel (Chapelle Notre-Dame du Bon Secours) just across the square that the church is on and the windmill.
The chapel was already here in the 12th century, but the present building dates back to the 18th century. The main church is a typical Normandian building, made by the natural stones that is used for all old buildings in these regions. Even the windmill is built with these stones. Special of this last building is that a family still lives in it.
