This small town is situated on a plateau down to the Sioule in 3 deep valleys and wild. A walk or trail riding you can discover the birthplace of General Desaix (death at Marengo in 1800) and some hotspots of resistance Combrailles. Those who seek will find the quiet refuge in the grotto of St. Menelaus, hermit and monk who raised Abbey Menat. Most athletes will embark on Brayne for canoeing down the Sioule.
