To the municipality the villages Chancy and Passeiry as well as the Weiler Le Cannelet belong. Chancy is in the Champagne in the extreme west Switzerland. Westernmost Swiss boundary stone stands on Gemeindegebiet of Chancy.
Chancy was an important passage place of the road from Geneva to Lyon, because one arrived here at the right Rhôneufer. Until 1424 a ferry took over transport. This was then replaced by a bridge. After the abort of the bridge 1589 the ferry service up to the new building of the bridge 1874, approximately three hundred years later, at the today's location was thus taken up again.
