The Cotentin windmill dates from 1744 and was renovated in 1997 when it became the only functional windmill in Normandy. As you will see, the renovation work was a success both in its preservation on a national heritage site and that of the local economic activity : the Cotentin windmill is now one of the few windmills in France capable of grinding such large quantities of cereals.
Here you can discover cereals of the past such as hard-wheat and buckwheat. You will also be able to admire a magnificent wooden barn with its thatched roof which houses a country boutique and a local history collection.
Located at an altitude of 120 meters, this provides you an amazing panoramic view of the surrounding woodland.
