Geography[edit]

Auvillars-sur-Saône is located some 14 km south-east of Nuits-Saint-Georges and 20 km east by north-east of Beaune. Access to the commune is by the D996 road from Corcelles-lès-Cîteaux in the north which passes south down the western side of the commune to Pouilly-sur-Saône. The D35A branches off the D996 in the commune and goes to the village then continues south to Glanon. The D20 branches west off the D996 and goes to Bagnot. Apart from the village there is the hamlet of Auvillars in the south. Apart from patches of forest in the centre of the commune the land is all farmland.[2]

The Saône river forms the eastern boundary of the commune as it flows south to eventually join the Rhône at Lyon. The Raie du Lac flows south through the centre of the commune to join the Saône.[2]

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, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes 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.
