This is the Canton of Versailles South, to the west of Paris, between the Valley of the Bièvre and the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse Regional National Park.

The commune is bounded by the plain of Saclay to the northeast and the Valley of the Mérantaise to the southwest. The village slopes down from the Place Saint Christophe at the top of the hill to the former hamlet of La Trinité at its foot.
