29,Bis Rue Gilbert Cesbon, Notre Dame de Mont.
Tel 02 28 11 26 43

In the heart of the village of Notre Dame de Mont, on a dune close to the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and dressed in unusual sails stands the windmill and below it is the Jardin du Vent. This garden is dedicated to the wind, with its artistic structures, wind chimes and all things meteorological.

Take a stroll through the gardens and discover the ways man has interacted with the wind, pass by the Rose des Vents or stop off at the outdoor theatre.
Ever year the gardens host a new exhibition, this year the exhibition brings visitors face to face with sculptures that change as the wind changes.
During July and August there is a workshop on kites.

The Garden brings to life the subtleties that the wind has to offer and the sensitive relationship that man has with his environment, the tools he has invented and the educational responsibilities of handing on that knowledge. Inside there are exhibits that demonstrate our sense of smell, which remarkably does not decrease with age as the receptors are continuously replaced.

Opening times:
                    June to August Monday to Friday 10h to 19h. Sat & Sundays 14h-18h
                    April, May and September. Tuesdays to Sundays   14h to 18h

Tarif:   Adult €4.  under 18's €2.20  Free under 6year old.
