lighthouse d'Ault

lighthouse d'Ault in May 2004. Remarkable is its height of fire - more than 100 metres. There are two ways to come here; via the narrow winding lanes (fun) or via coast road from south (easy). Unfortunately the lighthouse stands today in the middle of private houses, no more chance to take a good picture.
