Gatteville lighthouse in Normandy

Published on December 6, 2016 by Chris Robinson

Day 6 of my Normandy Advent Calendar. France's second tallest lighthouse stands 75 metres tall on the Cotentin coast at Gatteville. You can walk up to the top, climbing up the 365 stone steps. The thick walls of the lighthouse are peppered with 52 windows which provide a welcome window sill to take a rest. The view from the top is magnificent. I visited on a beautifully sunny day in September and enjoyed the magnificent panorama of the Normandy coastline. I had to stop several times on the way up to catch my breath. Coming down is certainly quicker but your legs do feel it. The lighthouse was built between 1829 and 1834.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
