Chez nous ("Where We Live") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1966, performed in French by Dominique Walter.

The song was performed fifteenth on the night, following Italy's Domenico Modugno with "Dio, come ti amo" and preceding the Netherlands' Milly Scott with "Fernando en Filippo". At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing 16th in a field of 18.

The song deals with the traditions of France (and, by extension, Europe) as they are seen by the rest of the world, with Walter remarking that they appear to be overly romantic. Walter also recorded the song in German under the same title.

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1967 Contest by Noëlle Cordier with "Il doit faire beau là-bas".
