This commune covers an area of 3.5km² and has nearly 275 inhabitants who are known as ‘Villerats’. It is about 17km south-west of Troyes. Reached via the D108 or the N77, it is 14 minutes from junction 20 (Saint-Thibault) of the A5 from Paris.
At the foot of the hill of Montaigu, it benefits from its wooded valleys. The fields of the Auboise stretch out to the west. The village is dotted with rural cottages adding to the rural charm of Villery. Sports and leisure associations are run by the residents.
At the end of the 5th century, Villery was where Clovis and Clothilde first met shortly before their royal wedding.
At the crossroads of the route nationale and Rue du Haut, an obelisk surrounded by railings commemorates the ‘children of Villery who died for France’ during the First World War. At the top, there is the croix de guerre medal and just below it there is the inscription ‘Pro Patria’.
