Passais la Conception is now the main entity of “Passais Villages”, a commune in the Orne Department of Normandie. It is a busy little village, with many of the amenities one might need, shops, pharmacy, doctor’s surgery, bookshop and a very busy butcher’s, just a few metres from the crossroads. Pages has mainly English books, some French and other languages, covering a range of topics (bargain prices!) On Tuesdays, there is sometimes a (very) small market, between Le Bistro au Coin and the Church, selling speciality cheeses, a few vegetables and savoury/sweet pancakes/galettes.
