This little village of stone houses sits along both sides of a river flowing through the Borgne Valley, running between Saint Jean-du-Gard in the southwest and towards the Méjean Causse plateau to the northwest. Saint André-de-Valborgne has stone arched bridges, old fountains, and shady café and restaurant terraces.

The village buildings are attached end-to-end, with their fronts on the road and their backs to the mountain river passing through. A high, double-arched stone bridge is quite lovely.

A very low dam makes a very nice swimming area in the center of the village, with a more-or-less grassy berge for sunbathing. The swimming beach has a lifeguard every afternoon, and access is free.
