Crozet is nestled at the foot of the Jura mountains in eastern France some from the centre of the Swiss city of Geneva and approximately from the French city of Lyon. It is also near Geneva International Airport, at a distance of some .
Its chief attraction is a cable car which carries hikers to the top of the Jura during the summer and serves a small ski resort during the winter. It has several sporting clubs: the St-Genis-Ferney-Crozet sporting association (soccer), a tennis club, and a ski club. Other places of interest include the remains of the château de Rossillon, a church (reconstructed around 1830), the Crozet forest, and the Monts-Jura ski area, which runs between Crozet and the town of Lélex in the adjacent valley.
