Joch’s territory stretches over an area covering 337 « hectares » ( 832.39 acres of land) almost in the middle of the « département des Pyrénées orientales », at the foot of Mount Canigo ( 2785m / 9134.8 feet high)
Its neighbouring administrative districts (villages) are Vinça ( to the north), Finestret (to the west/ south west) Glorianes (to the south west) and Rigarda ( to the east)
The village of Joch ( the « commune »/ the administrative district) rises from 300m ( 984 feet) high at the « cami de l’estrade » (on the road leading to Vinça) to 926 m (3037.28 feet) high at the « Puig de las feixes » (the mount of the terraced hillsides), its highest point.
The old village is perched on a hill overlooking the Vinça plain and the Têt valley. Then there are recent housing estates stretching along the road leading to Vinça and spreading around the Mas Rouby.
