Accons is a commune in the Ardèche department in the Rhone-Alpes region of southern France.

The inhabitants are called Acconnais or Acconnaises.[1]

Geography[edit]

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.[2]

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.[2]
