Geography[edit]

Alincourt is located some 15 km south of Rethel and 25 km north-east of Rheims. It can be accessed on the D925 road from Neuflize in the west passing through the heart of the commune and the village and continuing east to Juniville. The D985 road from Perthes in the north also passes through the north-west of the commune and continues to join the D925 west of Juniville. The commune consists entirely of farmland other than a strip of forest along the banks of the river.[3]

The Retourne river flows through the commune from east to west passing just south of the village and continuing west until it joins the Aisne at Neufchatel-sur-Aisne.[3]
