Aisey-sur-Seine is a French commune in the Côte-d'Or department in the Burgundy region of eastern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aiseyens or Aiseyennes.[1]

Geography[edit]

Aisey-sur-Seine is located some 12 km south of Chatillon-sur-Seine and about 25 km north-east of Montbard. The commune can be reached by travelling east from Coulmier-le-Sec on Highway D29 which passes through the heart of the commune and the town before continuing east to join Highway D16 near Saint-Germain-le-Rocheux. The commune can also be accessed from the north on Highway D971 (the Route de Dijon) from Nod-sur-Seine. Highway D971 continues through the town and commune south to Saint-Marc-sur-Seine. Other highways entering the commune are the D101A from Chemin-d'Aisey in the south-west and the D29C cross-country road from Nod-sur-Seine which joins Highway D29 in the commune. The commune has large areas of forest - especially in the east and the south with some farmland on the western side.[2]

The commune is traversed by the Seine river which forms part of the south-eastern boundary before passing northwards through the town then along a part of the northern border before continuing north to Chamesson. The Brevon Stream which forms the south-eastern boundary of the commune joins the Seine near the intersection of Highway D29 and D101 (a side road from the D971).[2]

Demographics[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 [1], 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.
