A small village, part of the canton of Buis-les-Baronnies, it is surrounded by vines, olive groves and apricot trees. It is said that the village's first inhabitants gradually moved their village – their original homes being too far removed from their lands, their cabanons, little by little, were transformed into their main dwellings. Many mills still feature at the foot of the old village - some of them, refurbished, are now houses.
