The local market town of Sauze Vaussais is only a 10 minute drive away, with fresh local produce from the charming markets on Thursdays & Saturdays. Two supermarkets (one a large Super U ), and a variety of boulangeries, tabacs and other small shops. There are several restaurants and cafes, including mobile fish and chips twice a week.

There is a large lake just outside the village with fishing facilities, crazy golf, picnic area, slides and climbing frames for children.
