“A little expensive for a climb up a lighthouse”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The cost was 20 Euros (a family of 4) and although enjoyable it is a 20 min visit - climbing up the stairs and down again. There is a little information zone but it is all in French.

“Beautiful view on a beautiful town”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Huge climb but it worth it. Very nice old "phare" which is in the middle of the peninsula. So perfect place to have a bird's eye view

“its lovely and worth a visit”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Its situated in a beautiful area and worth a visit, Cap Ferret itself is a fine place if you like sea ,sand,fish and oysters. Its quiet with no night life, But I love it
