The inhabitants are called Acconnais or Acconnaises.
Accons is located in the district of Tournon-sur-Rhone and the canton of Le Cheylard 4 km south-west of Le Cheylard and some 50 km south-east of Le Puy. the only road into Accons is the D578 running west from Le Cheylard and continuing to Mariac. Accons village is accessed by the Accons road or La Mothe road which both branch off the D578. In the north of the commune is the hamlet of Villebrion which is also accessed by small mountain roads.
The Dorne river crosses the commune from west to east north of the village as it flows east to join the Eyrieux at Le Cheylard. Many tributaries feed the Dorne from the commune: in the north the Ruisseau des Combes forms the western border as it flows south to join the Dorne; in the south many streams flow north to join the Dorne including the Ruisseau de Praderne which forms part of the western border before joining the Dorne and the Ruisseau de Boure flows north through the centre of the commune.

(Not all data is known)
In 2010, the commune had 428 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1] [Note 2]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
- In the census table and the graph, by convention in Wikipedia, and to allow a fair comparison between five yearly censuses, the principle has been retained for subsequent legal populations since 1999 displayed in the census table and the graph that shows populations for the years 2006, 2011, 2016, etc.. , as well as the latest legal population published by INSEE
