This commune covers an area of 4.2km² and has nearly 115 inhabitants who are known as ‘Maupasiens’. It is located 22km south of Troyes. Reached via the D1, it is 15 minutes from junction 21 (Saint-Thibault) of the A5 from Troyes.

The village is stretched out along the Seronne on the edge of the woods of the Forêt d’Aumont. It benefits from its natural resources and beautiful woodland. Half-timbered or exposed brick cottages are dotted around the idyllic landscape of Maupas.

Along the D1, the wash house - which is in very good condition - contributes to the rural image of Maupas. It is a witness to the daily life of the Maupasiens who used it between 1850 and 1950, a period during which ideas of convenience and hygiene began to take root in the capital, but also in villages like Maupas. On the Mairie there is a plaque in memory of those who died in the First World War.
