The commune of Grez-Doiceau is comparatively large, covering some 5,544 hectares (ie 13,700 acres). Its undulating countryside provides a wide variety of landscapes and scenery.
The valley of the River Dyle and its main tributaries (the Pisselet, the Train and the Nethen) forms the hydrographical structure of Grez-Doiceau.
