LOCALE is commonly used with geographic areas.  The locale of a story, a film, a murder, etc.  I think it is less definite than LOCATION.  Maybe something like GENERAL AREA.   I do not believe, for example, that you will hear "the locale of the gunshot wound".

 

How long have you lived in this locale?  city, area

How you lived in this location?  this house, farm

 

Just my thoughts, Andre.
