Les Hauts-de-Chée is a commune in the Meuse department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

The former towns of Génicourt-sous-Condé, Hargeville-sur-Chée, Louppy-sur-Chée (Loppy-le-Petit) and Les Marats (Marat-la-Grande, Marat-la-Petite) were joined to Condé-en-Barrois on 20 June 1972, which subsequently changed its name to Les Hauts-de-Chée on 1 July 1972.

Geography[edit]

The river Chée rises in the eastern part of the commune, then flows westward through the middle of the commune, crossing through several villages and hamlets.
