Geography[edit]

Barisis-aux-Bois is located some 20 km west of Laon and 25 km north of Soissons. The village is in the heart of the national forest of Saint-Gobain. The commune can be accessed by the D1750 road from Pierremande in the west to the village with the D534 continuing east to Saint-Gobain and the D535 going south-east to Septvaux. There is also the D53 road from Amigny-Rouy in the north passing through the village and continuing south to Verneuil-sous-Coucy. The D7 road from Amigny-Rouy to Saint-Gobain passes through the northern corner of the commune. Other than the village there are three hamlets in the commune: Bernagousse, L'Abbaye, and Le Crotoir. The commune is heavily forested - especially in the north - with some areas of farmland.[5] [6]

The Menil stream passes through the commune from south to north joining the Ruisseau de Servais and continuing north forming part of the eastern border of the commune joining with many other streams before joining the Oise.[5]
