Local facilities can be found in the village - here you will find an excellent bakery, butcher, a restaurant, a village pub and other amenities including a mini supermarket and hairdresser. Historical Domfront, with its medieval port on top of a cliff, is only 8km away whilst Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, with its spa centre, casino, lake and sports centre, is also within easy reach (23 km).
