Coudures is in the area south of the Adour river. This area is far more pronounced in altitude differences than North of the river - where the land is virtually flat for many kilometrees.
The village has a 13th-century Anglican Church which can be seen in many old photos but with a different looking tower to today as the old tower top was destroyed by a lightning strike in the 20th century.
There are some very old buildings in Coudures and at that this time[clarification needed] had many shops. This however has been depleted due to supermarkets and general commerce growth to just a post office and a bar (which has now closed), but is for sale.
There are a fairly high population of British and European immigrants in the village, making up around 5% of the population. There are also many different sub-cultures from all over France that live in the village, with a very diverse mixture from North to South, East to West.
The village has a large reservoir nearby and hunting, fishing, petanque, horse riding and mountain-biking are popular local sports.
