Geography

Auxon is located some 22 kilometres (14 mi) south-west of Troyes and 22 km north-east of Saint-Florentin. Access to the commune is by Route nationale N77 from Villeneuve-au-Chemin in the west which passes just to the north of the village and continues north-east to Villery. The D374 comes from Maraye-en-Othe in the north, passes through the village, and continues to Ervy-le-Châtel in the south. The D1 road goes east from the D374 to Montigny-les-Monts. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Sivrey, Vert, Courtelon, Roncenay, Les Croisettes, and La Coudre. The commune is mixed forest and farmland with especially large forests in the north. [5]

The Armance forms the southern border of the commune as it flows west becoming the Armançon then following the Canal de Bourgogne to join the Yonne at Migennes. The Saussol flows south down the western side of the commune to join the Armance east of Ervy-le-Châtel. The Ru de Sivrey rises near Sivrey and flows south to join the Saussol as does the Ru d'Auxon which rises near the village. The Ru de Vert rises near Vert and also flows south to join the Saussol. The Ruisseau de Montigny flows across the south of the commune from north-east to south-west and joins the Armance on the southern border of the commune.
