Droyes is located a few kilometers from Giffaumont is a goal for a walk, a little country, a little forest, a pleasant road, light sweet up and down. Children will discover a real country, with its wildflowers, its plant sucking insects that dance from flower to flower. You will not go unnoticed at the beautiful curious cows, which will raise your head and follow you pass their eyes ...

When you see the white tower, you will pass the spot where a stream crosses under the road, caressing the tall grass and reeds called "cattail", and "phragmites" for the more dense with which the ancients made brooms. The frog, cute little frog loves to hide in the corners there.

The etymology of the name Droyes Drei is of Celtic origin as Der. The river also passes Droyes Giffaumont.


Droyes is a charming village, he has managed to develop without erasing his age. It's small, beautifully ornate, quiet and welcoming. Notre-Dame church is of stone and dates from the 12th century, but was partly rebuilt in 1647. You will notice its Romanesque nave, its baptismal font and above all, its stained glass windows are the work of master glass of Troyes school.

The half-timbered architecture, specializing in champagne, is made of studs or poplar tree which are inserted between the slabs to paillot which are strips of poplar and mud. The roofs are tiled hollow, with an advanced cap that protects the walls of many elements. The old hanging up there, just under the roof and using a long pole, the boots to dry beans, while the shoes left outside, were also protected from rain. Oh yes! The mud is a mixture of loam, chopped straw and cow hair sometimes. If you are interested in this type of construction, you will notice that the wall of the west, where does the rain, is covered with shingles, or shingles, which are pine boards, nailed in overlapping slightly to protect the wall. Sometimes the boards are shaped tiles cover and beautifully steeples.
