Nolay is located in the heart of the Cozanne Valley. The town marks the transition between the forests and plains to the north and west and the hillside vineyards of the wealthy Burgundian wine regions surrounding Beaune and the Chalonnaise hills to the south.
Nolay is a small medieval market town, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful towns on the southern edge of the Côte-d'Or with its 14th century Central Market and wooden framed houses.
Lazare Carnot's birth house is a local attraction.
