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


Athie is located some 12 km south-west of Montbard and 13 km north-east of Époisses. Access to the commune is by road D4 from Senailly in the north which passes through the village and continues south-west to Bard-lès-Époisses. The D1 road comes from Moutiers-Saint-Jean in the west passing through the village and merging with the D4 then continuing south-east to Viserny. There is a large band of forest in the north-east of the commune with small patches south of the village and the rest of the land is farmland.[2]

The Armançon river flows through the centre of the commune from south to north, eventually joining the Yonne at Migennes. The Reome river flows from the west to join the Armançon in the village.[2]

In 2010 the commune had 90 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.
