Les Essarts-le-Roi is bordered by Coignières and Lévis-Saint-Nom to the northeast, Dampierre-en-Yvelines to the east, Senlisse to the southeast, Auffargis to the south, Le Perray-en-Yvelines to the southwest, Les Bréviaires to the west and Saint-Rémy-l'Honoré to the north.
An imperial decree in 1814 led to the creation of the commune of Les Essarts-le-Roi by combining the former communes of Essarts and Des Layes.
The 2011 census recorded 6,298 people living in the commune.
Since the 1980s, Les Essarts-le-Roi has been home to a large number of Vietnamese, who mostly arrived in France following the Vietnam War. While refugees initially settled in Paris, the suburbanization and growing affluence of the population resulted in many moving to outer communes of the Île-de-France region.
