Aime is a commune in the Savoie département in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. In 1972, the former communes of Longefoy, Tessens and Villette were merged with Aime.


The commune lies in the Tarentaise Valley, partly overlapping the ski resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs.


The town is served by the Aime-la-Plagne railway station.
