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

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Bagnotins or Bagnotines.[2]


Bagnot is located some 30 km south of Dijon and 15 km east by north-east of Beaune. Access to the commune is by the D20 from Argilly in the west which passes through the village and continues east to Auvillars-sur-Saône. The D35E goes south from the village to the D973. The A36 autoroute passes through the south of the commune from west to east but has no exit in the commune. The nearest exit is Exit Sinnbild Autobahnausfahrt.svg 1  some 5 km east of the commune. The commune is extensively forested in the south with forests also in the north-west; the centre of the commune is farmland.[3]

The Sereine river flows through the commune and the village from the north-east and continues south-west to join the Meuzin near Palleau. Two tributaries feed the Sereine from the commune - one fed by the Étang de Menans just west of the commune and the other from the Grand Étang west of the village. Another stream rises in the east of the commune and flows east through the Étang Limonet and Étang du Moulin, both just east of the commune, to the Saône river at Glanon.[3]

In 2010 the commune had 129 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 communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

  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.
