The village is approximately two hours north of Toulouse, two hours south of Limoges and around an hour from Brive, all of which have international airports. Toulouse, in particular, has good, year round flights as it is the base for the Airbus Corporation in France.

The surrounding countryside is characterised by rolling hills, chestnut woods and the spectacular river valleys of the Lot and Cele. Situated on the edge of the Causse du Quercy, which is a magnificent limestone plateau area covered with oak forest, a mass of paths edged with dry stone walls, villages built with the blonde stone taken from the Causse, it is an area filled with a lot of very varied countryside to explore.
