Angoville is located some 30 km south of Caen and 10 km east by south-east of Thury-Harcourt. The D6 road from Thury-Harcourt to Ussy forms the northern border of the commune. Access to the commune is by the D241 road from Tréprel in the south which passes through the length of the commune and the village and continues north to join the D6 on the border. The commune is mostly farmland with an area of forest in the south which is part of the large Bois de Saint-Claire.
Angoville is composed of the old French "ville" (from the Latin "Villae") meaning a rural area or village and a Scandinavian name Asgaut (or Asgautr), gallicized to Asgot, Ansgot, Angot, and Ango - originally the Norman surname Ango and Angot which are widespread in Seine-Maritime.
