This commune covers an area of 5.5km² and has 565 inhabitants who are known as ‘Bordemontais’. It is located 15km south of Troyes. Reached via the D66, D85 or the D444, it is 7 minutes from junction 21 (Saint-Thibault) of the A5 from Paris.
The town has two hamlets, Bray and Vireloup, which are some way apart, but are both brought under the auspices of Les Bordes-Aumont. The village is surrounded by fields, and there are facilities and amenities, including a school, village hall, tennis courts and multi sports pitch.
In this rural setting, a feature of the Bordemontais’ daily life between the second half of the 19th century and the 1950s is still visible alongside the D66. As you approach from Saint-Thibault, the wash house can be seen at the beginning of Rue du Lavoir. These buildings were designed to provide shelter and make it easier to do the laundry. Constructed of wood, one side is left open for better ventilation and to make it more practical when it was in use.
