Ambel is located at the southern end of the department of Isère, in the area of Beaumont, on a small plateau extending north of Faraud Mountain on the eastern edge of the Dévoluy massif.
Ambel overlooks Lake Sautet, which is formed by a dam located 1 kilometer north of the village, and creates the two rivers barring the town. Corps, to the east, and Pellafol, to the west, are located on the lateral edges of the plain at the same altitude, which gives the local landscape a peculiar aspect, the three villages partially embedded inside the gorge.
