About the neighbourhood
The village shop is a short walk away and provides all basic necessities including, of course, French bread and croissants. There is also a small bar next to it.

A more extensive range can be obtained from the nearby town of Chateauneuf du Faou which has 2 large supermarkets, a regular weekly market (Wednesday), a visiting fishmonger (outside Le Clerc on Fridays) and a choice of restaurants ranging from Pizzerias to the Relais de Cornailles which appears in the Michelin Guide.

There is fishing in the river and boats can be hired in Chateauneuf near the indoor swimming pool.
