The commune is located in the Corbières some 35 km south-east of Limoux and 15 km east of Arques. Access to the commune is by the D212 road which branches from the D613 west of Mouthoumet and goes south through the commune by a tortuous route then continues south to join the D10 north-east of Soulatgé. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Savugnan in the south-west and La Grave north of the village. The whole of the commune is rugged and heavily forested.
Many streams rise all over the commune and flow northwards to join the Orbieu which flows through the commune from south-west to north to eventually join the Aude near Raissac-d'Aude.
