The village lies in a valley sculpted by glaciers...
High above, at 2432m, the mountains known as the "Cornettes de Bise" are also respected internationally for the environmental worth, with their "Natura 2000" and listed status (awarded in 2000 and 2009).
The valley is loved by walkers for its wide open spaces and remarkably untouched natural surroundings.
