Mairie de Villy-le-Maréchal

Add to bookmark


The village of Villy-le-Maréchal, some fifteen kilometers from Troyes, nestles at the foot of its 16th-century church, dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary.

It is Gothic in style, in keeping with the rural churches of the Champagne region. Restoration of the steeple, which fell after the storm of 1999, means that the harmonious silhouette of this village landmark can once again be admired. The tour includes remarkable statuary and stained glass windows representative of the Troyes school.

The first mention of Villy dates back to 1189, during the reign of King Philippe I, under the name Villiacum. The name Villy-le-Maréchal existed around 1290.

Over the centuries, the land became the property of the Villehardouin, Hennequin and Mole families, among others.

The harmonious development of housing, population and new activities has added to the commune's dynamism, while preserving the traditional values that have shaped local history.

The hedged and gently undulating nature of the surrounding countryside contributes to the calm, tranquillity and charm of the village, which is particularly popular with cyclists.

The village has a children's playground. A festival committee organizes events for local residents. There are two local craftsmen.
