Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
It is located in La Val Romey, which means, "The Roman Valley." The Romans built several outposts in the valley.
Lompnieu is located near the base of the large valley, with forest mounting on one side, and a plain with larger mountains looming on the other side. On a clear day, the snow-covered Alps can be seen. Lompnieu is around 600 metres in elevation. The climate is rather hot in the summer, attaining into the 1990s, and fairly cold in winter, with several large snow falls.
