Maxey-sur-Meuse is positioned in the north-west of the Vosges département, on the departmental frontier with the Meuse département. Neufchâteau is 13 kilometres (8 mi) away to the south. To the north east are Toul (34 kilometres / 21 miles) and Nancy (51 kilometres / 33 miles). Maxey is across the river from a road junction where traffic bound for Commercy continues in a northerly direction (RD964) while traffic for Bar-le-Duc turns to the north-west (RD966)
The (here relatively small) Meuse River flows through Maxey where it is joined by the waters from the Vair River and three smaller streams, the Roises, the Vau and the Blanchonrupt. The presence of all these water courses makes the village popular with anglers.
