This is flanked in the west by Montchemin (up to 860  m above sea level ), in the north by Rosé ( 800  m above sea level ) and Moton ( 797  m above sea level ). In between there are two valleys that drain the municipality to the north. In the south, the Rebeuvelier area stretches up the steep slope of the Jura folds of Mont Raimeux and reaches 1302  m above sea level at its summit . M. the highest point of both the municipality and the canton of Jura. In the far south-west, Rebeuvelier extends to the limestone cliffs Roche Saint-Jean in the area of ​​the Moutier gorges created by the Birs .

The population of Rebeuvelier was 332 in 1850 and 392 in 1900. Thereafter, the population decreased by around 45% to 220 people by 1980 due to strong emigration.
