Geography[edit]

Neuvy-Grandchamp is located 328km to 159km from Paris and Lyon. With these 4964 hectares, the common of Neuvy Grandchamps is the largest municipality in Canton of Gueugnon. However, in 1869, the town was cut from 298 acres to contribute to the formation of the new common: Les Guerreaux. The hilly area of the town rises to 400 feet and stretches for 10km from north to south and 8 km from east to west

Toponymy[edit]

From "Novis Vicus" in the ninth century through "Noviacus" in the thirteenth century, "Niviz" or "Novovico" in the fourteenth century, "Neufvy" in the seventeenth century and finally "Neuvy" in the eighteenth century, the name thus refers to a village on the roadside.
