Andert-et-Condon is a French commune in the department of Ain in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of eastern France.


Located 6 km north-west of Belley (a sub-prefecture of Ain) and 40 km south-west of Amberieu-en-Bugey, Andert-et-Condon is a commune of 694 hectares. It is watered by the Furans. In addition to the village, the commune has several hamlets: Gevrin, Andert, and les Barraques et Bognens. The commune can be accessed by the D83 road from Contrevoz in the north-west which passes through the village continuing east to join the D1504 from Chazey-Bons to Belley. The D32 also passes though Contrevoz then passes through the south of the commune to Belley. the D32A comes from the north and through the village linking with the D32 in the south of the commune. The commune is mostly forest with some areas of farmland.[1]

The town lies within the Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) zone for the wines of Bugey.


The area has been inhabited since the Chalcolithic and Roman periods. Excavations have found neolithic pottery. From 1180 to 1829 the Lordship of Andert played an important role in the region (the Dukes of Savoy - King of France). The tomb of François Andert Parra, provost of the constabulary of Bugey, is in the Andert chapel. This chapel dates from the 13th century with a stone dated from the 1st century. Andert and Condon were merged in 1791. Andert castle and Beauregard Manor overlook the road down to Contrevoz on the Furans. In 1838 on Andert bridge there was the mysterious drama of the Sébastien Benoit Peytel case which was defended by Balzac, Lamartine, and Gavarni.

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 [1] Archived 2016-03-06 at the Wayback Machine., the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities 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 on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
