Phare De Gatteville - Review

Phare De Gatteville (The Gateville lighthouse) is the second largest lighthouse in France, standing 75m high. This iconic lighthouse has as many steps as days in a year, as many windows as weeks and as many levels as months in a year. 11,000 granite blocks weighing 7,400 tons were used in the construction of this lighthouse. You have to climb 365 steps to reach the top of this incredible lighthouse and get a stunning view of the Saire valley and the sea of the Channel. It has had the privilege to be the first port between England and northern Europe, served as convenience and a practical stopover for Ships and boats out for short sails. It is said that at night on clear weather days, one can see the brilliance of the adjacent tower at the Isle of Wight, located on the other side of channel. Highlights and must sees include:

  • The second largest lighthouse in France, standing 75m tall.
  • Climb 365 steps to reach the top and catch a magnificent view of the Saire valley and the Channel.
  • A beautiful ancient port.
  • Spectacular surroundings, century old houses with flowery terraces.
