Barberey-Saint-Sulpice is a commune in the Aube department in the Grand Est region of north-central France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Barberotins or Barberotines.[1]


Barberey-Saint-Sulpice is located to the immediate north-west of Troyes with the Troyes - Barberey Airport located in the commune. Access to the commune is by the D619 highway which starts at the end of the D319 highway at the edge of Troyes and continues north-west through the commune to Fontaine-les-Grès. The D20 also passes through the commune from Troyes going north-west to Saint-Lyé. The D60 from Troyes to Dierrey-Saint-Pierre passes through the south-western end of the commune. The D619 comes from Sainte-Maure in the north-east and passes through the centre of the commune and the town and continues south-west to join the D60 in the commune. The airport runway crosses three-quarters of the commune west of the D619 from north to south with access to the airport terminal by the Route de l'Aerodrome branching off the D619. The main railway line from Troyes to the north-west passes through the commune with a station in the town. Apart from a large urban area covering most of the north-west of the commune and the airport occupying the centre, the rest of the commune is farmland.[2]

The Seine river passes through the north-east of the commune as it flows north-west to eventually reach Paris and the Atlantic ocean at Le Havre. The former Canal de la Haute-Seine begins in the commune and follows the Seine to eventually join the Aube at Marcilly-sur-Seine.[2]

For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
