Geography

Aure is located some 55 km east of Reims and some 20 km south by south-west of Vouziers. The western border of the commune is the border between Ardennes and Marne departments. Access to the commune is by road D6 from Manre in the south-east which passes through the village and continues south-west, changing to the D20 in Marne, to Sommepy-Tahure. The D306 goes north-east from the village to Monthois. The commune is entirely farmland.

The Allin river rises near the village and flows south-east to eventually join the Aisne at Brécy-Brières.
