Saint-André-le-Bouchoux is a commune in the Ain department in eastern France.

The river Irance, at tributary of the lake Grand Romans, runs through the town.

In 1836, the community was considered one of the poorest in France. It has gained wealth since, though. Today, most of the town revolves around restaurants, farms, and crafts.
