Gouise is a commune in the Allier department in central France.

This small village is situated at the crossing of two secondary departmental roads, the D102 (East-West from Saint-Voir to Bessay-sur-Allier) and the D105 (North-South from Neuilly-le-Réal to Saint-Gérand-de-Vaux). Oddly, it has no church but a small town hall with an adjacent meeting room.
