The village lies in a rural setting in the valley of the River Viosne, some 40 km north-west of Paris, within the Vexin Regional Nature Park. The commune is bordered by those of Ableiges, Marines, Santeuil, and Vigny. The nearest shopping centre is at Marines.


  • The church of Notre-Dame, parts of which date from the 13th century.
  • The 19th-century Château de Dampont and its park.


Us has a railway station on the line from Gisors to Pontoise and Paris (Gare Saint-Lazare).


The town has a preschool. In 2016 it asked for donations to the school on Facebook.[1]


Us is located next to a village called Marines. In the surrounding area, both villages are indicated with signs showing both names listed, which reads as "US MARINES". A regular joke in the region is to make people believe that these signs indicate a nearby U.S Marine Corps base.[citation needed]
