You will love the rustic charm of its Auvergne architecture, with its typical houses with thick walls and slate roofs, sometimes grouped together in "barriades". The municipality also has a Puy Mary site centre, and is a member of the Puy Mary mixed syndicate, which was recently awarded the "Grand Site de France" label. It also has 3 retail businesses (1 bar-restaurant, 1 hotel-restaurant, 1 grocery shop with a bread deliveries and cigarettes), as well as a number of furnished tourist accommodation units.
