The municipality covers a section of the hill country of Monts Faucilles . The Ruisseau de Lichecourt (called below Belmonts Ruisseau de Belmont ) flows through the municipality and flows into the upper Saône in Attigny . About 10% of the four square kilometers large municipal area are forested ( Bois le Comte in the northeast).
From 1751 until the French Revolution, Belmont was part of the Darney Bailiwick. The residents were parish in the parish Nonville, which belonged to the Relanges priory. Before the church was built, there was a small chapel in Belmont. In 1961 the parish name was changed from Belmont to Belmont-lès-Darney to better distinguish it from other parishes called Belmont .
