The cottage is the Ile Louët, a lighthouse on a rocky island in the middle of the Morlaix Bay in Brittany, France.

The lighthouse was built in 1857 when lighthouse keepers would live on the island with their families to keep constant nighttime vigil on the lights.

In the 1960s, the lighthouse became automated and there wasn’t a need for entire families to stay isolated on the island. But the cottage remains.
