Artonge is a commune in the south of the department of Aisne in the old Brie Champagne region, located on a high plateau not far from the sources of the Dhuys and the edge of the forest of "Rouges Fossés" (Red Ditches).

It is located some 20 km south-east of Château-Thierry and 35 km south-west of Épernay. It can be accessed by the D20 road from Pargny-la-Dhuys in the north coming south through the village and continuing south-west to Marchais-en-Brie. The D201 branches south off the D20 changing to the D40 at the border of the commune and continuing south to Montmirail. There is also the D866 coming from Nesles-la-Montagne in the north-west terminating in the village. There is also a railway line coming from the north with Artongeole Station just north of the village. The railway continues south-west through Montmirail. The commune is mixed farmland and forest.[4]

The Ru des Rieux flows through the village from its source to the west and flows south-west into the Ravine de la Dhuys.[4]

This church has no proper tower but rather a bell housed in a Dormer of the north side of the roof over the nave. The church has been the subject of a complete restoration and was returned to the Church during a Mass celebrated by Friar Gandon, the parish priest of Our Lady of the Three Valleys on which it depends, and Bishop Giraud, Bishop of Soissons in 2009. The Churtch contains a Stained glass window: Christ on the Cross (16th century)Logo monument historique - noir sans texte.svg which is registered as an historical object.[9]

  • The Lavoir (Public laundry) is decorated on the theme of a fable by Jean de La Fontaine: "The fox, the flies, and the hedgehog".
