Crotelles of the 10th century Villa Croteldi became the eleventh, fourteenth Crotellio then Croteil in 1493 to become Crottet from 1613, the village has changed over the centuries. From a totally rural village until the post-war Crottet is now the archetypal village rurban. Until the late 1970s, he had to follow the herd every night, from the prairie, joined the stables of the village. The expedition lasted over half an hour between the junction of Ormet and the church, but this quickly evaporated transhumance daily at the rate of mutation of agriculture. Many farmers have retired and their successors in moving herds of cattle trucks. It remains only five farms in about 1750 inhabitants and 1212 acres of surface. The population has found other sources of income, either in one of the forty companies Crottet or in jobs in industry, services and administration to Macon.

The town stretches from the Saone, with the Saint Laurent once called home resident Reissier where a hundred people, to Pont-de-Veyle along the Veyle, its southern boundary, nearly 7 km. The district Chavannes, flooded regularly by both the Saône by the Veyle is the junction of the TGV and SNCF Macon town. The prairie, field flooding of the Saone, covers nearly a third of the town and is protected by the Natura 2000. A peculiarity of the town of Crottet is its location.

The village is bordered by three major routes which form a triangle in a north - south the county 28 of the cross Bage to Pont-de-Veyle in a south east - west road 933 from Pont-de-Veyle Replonges to and in the east - west National Road 79 to the cross to Replonges Bage.
