Visited Cap Frehel today in the glorious Brittany sunshine. Unusually for France there was a charge for parking, although at €3 I didn't think it was excessive. The lighthouse building itself is a beautiful piece of architecture but it is overwhelmed by the area's natural...More

There is a fee to climb the lighthouse at Cap Frehel, which I feel is not really worth it as the views of the cliffs from ground level are already spectacular. The lighthouse (and the old, smaller one right beside it) do serve as a...More

Made a brief visit when motoring around this pleasant peninsula. The views from the surrounding footpaths are good and a place to blow the cobwebs away. There is a €5 charge to park.

There are 2 lighthouses at Cap Frehel, but only the modern one is still in use and the roof can be access (at cost).

For the lighthouse you have to pay entrace if you want to go inside, what we did not do. However the location and nature around it is worth a small visit.
