The Ource, a tributary of the Seine, was well loved by Renoir.With 745 inhabitants, the thirteen square mile village is found at the center of Champagne's Côte des Bar, on the border of Champagne and Bourgogne.HistoryAbbé Petel, born in Essoyes, recorded the history of the village in two volumes written in 1895.The existence of inhabitants at the site of Essoyes on the Ource river can be traced as far back as the time of the Celts.
