Visited to try and continue researching the sinking of Lancastria. My father was on board when whe was sunk, a month before my birth, yet I knew nothing of him or how died until about one year ago. Stephan was very helpful but the weather was so bad that it was impossible to see off shore towards the wreck. - we will be in the area for a few more days and hope to return. The rest of the museum will be of interest to anyone who has done any sailing, as we have. Very good value.

The Semaphore wouldn't be my first choice as an attraction but it was interesting. You are greeted with a smile and plenty of info from Elizabeth on the welcome desk. It costs 4 euros and 3 for the children. Opening times 10-1pm and 2.30-6pm. Everything is in French but you are given an English guide - if needed. The views from the top are impressive and maybe you could be luck like us - we spotted a Hoopoe, male Pied Flycatcher, Linnets, Stonechats and more while there.
