This village on the edge of the Var and Alpes de Haute Provence départements, not far from the Verdon Gorge, has become a tourist centre offering many nautical activities on its lake, which joins up with Sainte Croix Lake.

The village houses are grouped at the foot of the Thoron château dating back to the 14th and 15th century, which is now the mairie.
