Arcey is a commune in the Côte-d'Or department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of eastern France.


Arcey is located some 3 km south-east of Sainte-Marie-sur-Ouche and 16 km west by south-west of Dijon. Access to the commune is by the D35 road from Pont-de-Pany in the north-west passing through the north of the commune and continuing south-east to Urcy. The D104 road forms most of the eastern border of the commune as it branches south from the D35 and continues to join the D8 south of the commune. Access to the village is by the country road Rue des Ecrevisses which branches off the D35 in the north and passes south through the length of the commune and the village. The commune is heavily forested with some areas of farmland in the centre near the village.[2]

In 2009 the commune had 46 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references[edit]


  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 Archived 6 March 2016 at the Wayback Machine, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes 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.
