It occupies an area surrounded by chains of high mountains of Monte d'Oro massif in the North, and the massif of Monte Renoso South, through which flows the Gravona river.

Below the rocky peaks, clouds, appear odorant alders (bassu in Corsican), and beech woodlands can be found at the top of the valley. Lower altitudes are covered by forests, mainly composed of oaks and pines, and the chestnut wood located in an area between 600 and 800 meters.
