The town, west of the city of Avallon in the wooded Morvan area, was founded at a ford of the Cousin river shortly before its confluence with the Cure near Givry and was considered an important checkpoint for the Dukes of Burgundy , who also built the Vault-de-Lugny moated castle supervised the movement of goods in the region.
The place developed around the moated castle since the 13th century and stagnated due to the partial demolition of the complex in the 18th century. In addition to rafting and charcoal burning, tourism eventually became the most important factor in the place.
