It is made up of several discreet hamlets nestled in the woods. The Banquière River, a tributary of the Paillon which flows into Baie des Anges, runs through the main centre. There is a project for reopening its once-famous natural grotto. Saint-André-de-la-Roche is nicknamed ‘Lou pais dei babi’ (‘land of toads’, in the local Nissart language) and the call of frogs can be heard on summer evenings.

Sights: oil mills; Saint-André and Saint-Grat chapels; the grotto; Thaon de Revel castle (17th c) on a promontory overlooking the village.
