France- The Lighthouse and the Medieval Castle

L’ile Louet Carantec Morlaix Brittany France

The small island hides the treasure of its own. The biggest attraction is the Lighthouse that can be rented. It dates back to 1857 and it is still operational so for safety reasons it is not accessible. You can be a lighthouse keeper for a few nights and enjoy late nights in the light of the lighthouse. Waking up with the sun and explore the rocky cliffs and amazing sights around.

Foix Ariege France

The Foix Castle from atop its impressive mountain dominates the town and like a safeguard watches and protects the town as many years ago. The placement of the castle was strategically chosen because it dates from the era of insecurity, banditry, and territorial rivalries.
