Ambeyrac is a commune in the Aveyron department in the Occitanie region of southern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Ambairacois or Ambairacoises[2]

Geography[edit]

Ambeyrac is located some 15 km south-west of Figeac and 25 km north-west of Villefranche-de-Rouergue with its northern border being the border between the departments of Aveyron and Lot. It can be accessed by the D86 road from Balaguier-d'Olt in the north-east which passes through the village and continues south to La Capelle-Balaguier. The minor D127 road also goes west from the village to Saujac.[3]

The northern border of the commune is formed entirely by the Lot river for which there are no crossing points in the commune. The Ruisseau de Flaucou flows from the south through the commune and the village to join the Lot.[3]
