Sourdeval has a regular market every Tuesday, 2 supermarkets, several bars and cafes, 3 restaurants, 2 banks a cinema, and a good mix of shops along with 2 garages a petrol station, school, doctors, dentist, and tourist information.

Car boots (vide greniers) are popular at weekends and books are available listing them all area by area.
Nearby lake Dathee provides fishing golfing and walking and there are lots of fishing where a licence is not needed.
St Michael’s mount and St Malo are about an hour and a half away (or a little longer walking on the voie vert) with Cancal and St Bruic a little further. Avaranche with its American war museum is just over half an hour and Granville with its access to Jersey and Guernsey is an hour and a half. Bayeux and the d-day beaches are within 3 hours, whereas Swiss Normandy starts just past Vire with bungee jumping, zip wire and roller coaster at Soulevre Viaduct and orienteering, canoeing, sailing and rowing at Clecy. There’s also William the conquerer’s castle at Falaisse and the castle at Fougeres. Don’t forget Paris isn’t far away by TGV from Vire!!!
The main farmhouse, which faces west, was probably built in the early 1700s and would have had a thatch roof. It was renovated in the 1990s and has 3 bedrooms, with attics above each (which could provide further accommodation). There is a spacious lounge, a kitchen diner and utility room downstairs.
