GeographyEdit

Assis-sur-Serre is located some 30 km south-east of Saint-Quentin and 15 km north-west of Laon. It can be accessed by the D35 road from Remies in the west through the heart of the commune and the village and continuing to Pouilly-sur-Serre in the east. There is also the D351 road going north from the village and joining the D642 which continues north to Montigny-sur-Crecy. There is a network of country roads in the commune which is entirely farmland apart from the village.[2]

The Serre river flows through the north of the commune forming part of the northern border but there are no other waterways in the commune other than a small loop off the Serre.[2]
