Louhans is centrally located on the plain of Bresse. The Vallière forms part of the commune's south-eastern border, then flows into the Solnan, which forms part of the commune's southern border. The Solnan flows into the Seille in the town. The Seille flows south-southwestward through the western part of the commune and crosses the town.
