Vensac windmillAn institution!
Make sure you don't miss the Vensac Windmill which is still in operation. This 19th Century windmill still produces flour for every visit. It is possible to try your hand at this ancient practice and make your own flour and take a bag home with you. This is a great activity for the whole family.
Take a walk or cycle along the coastal paths, through forests or vineyards and discover the remarkable fauna this area has to offer. Explore the Médoc vineyards and the wine-making estates with visits, tasting sessions and walks through the vines.
The Thursday evening marketNot to be missed!
During the summer season, you can really immerse yourself in the true village atmosphere at the night-time market on Thursday evenings. Fill your basket and taste local specialities at the stalls in a festive and musical atmosphere.
During the summer there are big life-size dolls, called Mounaques, set up all over the village. This all started in 2001, when two locals made life-size models of the characters of the village. Since then, the locals play along and make the most beautiful dolls with a different theme each year.
