Pointe des dames lighthouse can be found in La Chaise woods, north east of Noirmoutier island in Vendée. It has been maintained as was. It is one of vendée's oldest lighthouses.

 In 1867, construction of a 18.70 m turret began with accommodation, a fixed light with white and red shades.
In 1910, the tower was entirely painted white.

The structure today is typical of light-house buildings, including outbuildings, a well and even a menhir standing stone!

Since 1950, it is equipped with a light displaying 3 occultations every 12 secs, with white, red and green shades.
It has been automated and telecrontrolled since 2002.

It is always manned, but not open to the public.
