Mairie de Villeloup

Add to bookmark


Villeloup is located around 20 km to the northeast of the city of Troyes. Originally, this commune was mainly agricultural.

Today, there are still a few farmers. The majority of residents work in Troyes.

What sets Villeloup apart from neighboring communes is its large wooded area, which is a delight for walkers and nature lovers of all kinds. This woodland is 100% privately owned.

The site features a 16th-century church, known as the Eglise de la Nativité, which contains many treasures. These include a carved wooden tabernacle dating from 1546, and a superb statue of Saint Barbara, dating from 1520-1530, which went to America a few years ago for a major exhibition. It also boasts superb stained-glass windows and a restored oculus. The obelisk on the Vaudepart estate, ferme de Villeloup, was erected in the late 1800s in memory of Charles Baltet-Petit, a nurseryman from Troyes, who reforested the commune, then on the verge of poverty.

Four superb wells, fully restored and decorated with flowers, have been in great demand by the local population over the last few centuries. There are no watercourses in the commune.

A village hall and a sports and leisure association (ASL) are available to residents.
