Geography[edit]

A typical rural agricultural village situated some 20 miles (32 km) east of Montreuil-sur-Mer on the D71 road. The limestone hill located south of wood is managed by the Nature Conservatory. The many hedges in the village have created a ecological network, essential for wildlife. The preservation of these hedges and the conservation of grasslands is vital. Some rare species breed in the area.
