The village is picturesque, with an eclectic cluster of white houses, mainly of the 18th and 19th centuries, though some are older. Many have the red pan-tiles roofs of the period. Above the village is Dumyat (Dum-EYE-at) with the iron age fort of the hill-dwelling Myaeti people: There are arable fields and pasture all around. The village used to be a health spa, where folk came for the air, the fresh water and the goats' milk from the herds kept here.
