Located 6 km south west of Crémieu, the canton capital, and 10 km north of Bourgoin-Jallieu, Veyssilieu stands amid rolling, lush green countryside.

Its 649 hectares have a somewhat irregular outline with a pointed northern tip and stretching from North-East to South-West on either bank of the Ribaudière stream.

The administrative area covers the Village itself and the large hamlet of Le Petit Meyzieu, as well as three smaller hamlets - La Côte Faroud, Le Burizay and Le Colly - and a scattering of farms. The inhabitants are known as Veysiliards (male) or Veysiliardes (female). Many of the buildings bear witness to the village's history: the Templar farm, the château, the church (rebuilt in the 19th century on the site of the former 13th-century church), and the chapel of La Salette built on Chatelan Hill and named Notre-Dame de la Salette following the fulfilment of a wish; the village was spared by the cholera epidemic that swept across the region in 1855. A tradition of pilgrimage followed, every 19th September, and lasted for very many years.

The village school is run in conjunction with that of Panossas, and local children benefit from school transport to travel to Tignieu-Jameyzieu high school or to Pont-de-Chéruy college.

The local golden-yellow stone used for the town hall building and function room, the school, the café and many of the houses gives the village a certain characterful charm.
