The film is produced by Borga Dorter and Hubert Toint, Agnes Bristow and executively produced by Leif Bristow, the production is done under Leif Films Media. Let’s find out where the film sets in and what were the actual locations of filming.
Where is Moriah’s Lighthouse filmed?
Moriah’s Lighthouse was filmed at the same location where the plot set in, that is in Brittany, France inside the Western Europe. The lighthouse that Moriah wants to restore in the film is Ploumanac’h Lighthouse(officially known as the Mean Ruz Lighthouse) that is located in a commune named Perros-Guirec inside the Côtes-d’Armor department of Brittany. It is an active lighthouse but is closed for the public.
The lighthouse was first constructed in 1860 and was destroyed by German troops in 1944 and then it was replaced by another lighthouse in 1946 that exists today. Its design was planned by Henry Auffret and built by a local construction company, Martin et frère.
Perros-Guirec has been a seaside resort since the end of 19th century and is known for its sandy beaches, water sports, and pink granite rocks of varied shapes and patterns. Unlike Hallmark’s Caribbean Summer that highlights island village, this Hallmark film features hotels and seaside scenes.
The hotel in which Moriah resides is Hotel Castel Beau Site located inside Brittany. It is one of the most popular hotels of Brittany for tourists due to its ideal location in front of the beach and is rated 4.3 out of 5 stars on various tourism sites. Other Hallmark films released in 2022 are Warming Up To You, Sweet Autumn, The Perfect Pairing, Her Pen Pal, You Had Me Aloha, North To Home, Love At First Glance, etc.
