The village nestles at the foot of the Puy de Sancy, at 1886 metres the highest point in the Monts Dore range, and indeed in the whole Massif Central.

The thermal springs were first used in medical treatments by the Gauls, and a major spa centre was established by the Romans. The waters are reputed for their powers against respiratory diseases.
