The Chaudière-Appalaches region is located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, facing Quebec City, between the Centre-du-Québec and Bas-Saint-Laurent regions and bordered by the US border. It takes its name from the Chaudière River that crosses it from south to north and from the Appalachian Mountains.
