The Asse (Assa in Occitan) is a 75.4 km (46.9 mi) long river in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence département, southeastern France. Its source is several small streams which converge at Tartonne, 12 km (7.5 mi) east of Digne-les-Bains. It flows generally southwest. It is a left tributary of the Durance into which it flows between Valensole and Oraison, 9 km (5.6 mi) northeast of Manosque.
The Asse is called "Asse de Clumanc" between its source and its confluence with the "Asse de Blieux" and the "Asse de Moriez" at Barrême.
Part of its valley is used by the route Napoléon.
