In a direct line the commune is 4.2 km north by north-east of Bar-sur-Aube, 33.9 km north-west of Chaumont and 49.8 km east of Troyes.[1] The nearest large cities are Reims (122.3 km) and Dijon (106.7 km).[1] Access to the commune is by the D384 road from Bar-sur-Aube in the south passing north through the western part of the commune west of the village and continuing to Soulaines-Dhuys in the north. The D13 also goes from Bar-sur-Aube through the south-east of the commune and continues north-east to Colombé-la-Fosse. Access to the village is by the D73 which branches off the D384 north of Bar-sur-Aube and passes through the village before continuing north-east to Beurville. The D102 branches off the D384 in the north of the commune and goes south-east through the village and continues to Voigny in the south-east. The commune has large areas of forest in the north with the southern part mostly farmland.[2]

The commune lies on a limestone plateau with an area of 1,391 hectares and its altitude varying between 183m in the valley to 331m[3] near the Vernonfays farm in the north.[4]

The Vernet river flows from the north of the commune to join the Ruisseau de Cuvelots south of the village which then flows south to join the Bresse in the south-west. The Bresse flows from the east passing through the south of the commune and continuing west to join the Aube near Ailleville.[2]
