Many houses in the village are second homes, owned by British or Dutch families attracted by the unspoiled scenery and comparatively inexpensive property. The result has been to bring money into the area and many old houses have been preserved by tasteful renovation.

Places of interest

  • The Maison Sainte Marguerite, dated 1630.

Since 2007 a local society for the preservation of the Church(APSE)has been active in fund raising and in generally overseeing the Church's part in the village heritage.
