some shops close ...others open

Europe's smallest soap manufacturer HQ

The new estate agent well under way
The old seventeenth century shop buildings on the route de Loudun that hug the church site have found two new tenants.  Both have refurbished rather elegant traditional 19th century French retail fronts.  Frenchmen and women, generally not very tall today, were obviously even more petit in those now distant days... Mind you Head, if you need to buy the wonderful hand-made soap.
