It is located in a depression between the mountains and the plateau of Uchon Antully north, Charolais and Brionnais des Monts south, on the right bank of the Bourbince. The area is meshed by a network of hedgerows with hedgerow characteristics of scattered settlements. The meadows bounded by low hedges that do not screen and reliefs offer remarkable views. The town offers a host of hilly groves and pastures designed according to its rivers, the Oudrache, Bourbince and Arroux that winds before joining the vast bed of the Loire.

A suburban housing has gradually built around the town and along the tracks of the commune. Whatever the place, even in the heart of the city, the countryside remains very present.
