The village is sited on a wooded plateau, high above the river Seille. The hilly topography gives rise to a range of microclimates and so agriculture surrounding the village is mixed, featuring arable crops and cattle rearing as well as vineyards.
Fleury was located within Saulnois, a region known as a source of salt over many centuries and under the control of the Three Bishoprics province.
