It is on the edge of the Chataignerie and near the Segala. It is also adjacent to the lake of St Etienne Cantales, a large body of water formed by the damming of the Cere river for hydro electric purposes.
The village also has a very good go-cart track, and regularly hosts championship races.
As well as the church and the town hall, there are two bars, and a camping site. Gites may also be rented from the farm. There are no shops.
