The gmina of Kurów lies in the central western part of the Lublin Region, on the intersection of two main roads from Lublin to Warsaw and to Radom. It occupies a territory of 101 sq. km and lies at a distance of 15 km from Puławy and 23 km from Kazimierz Dolny.
Its landscape is quite varied. The northern part of the gmina lies in the Lubartów Uplands – an area gently undulating, partially forested and intersected by two river valleys of the Kurówka River and its tributary, Białka.
