Villieu-Loyes-Mollon is a commune in the Ain department in eastern France.

It lies between Meximieux and Pont-d'Ain.

Villieu-Loyes-Mollon is the result of the merger of three old villages Villieu, Loyes and Mollon. After a very favorable referendum, the merger into a single municipality was pronounced by a prefectural decree on December 21, 1994.[1]
