The municipality of Avressieux is located in the department of Savoie in the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
Its inhabitants are the Apriciennes and Apriciens, gentile who would derive from the name of a Gallo-Roman estate Apriciacum ("who likes the sun").
The local dialect, which is practically no longer spoken today, has long kept the name "Avarcholans".
The town is essentially oriented towards agriculture with young and dynamic farmers, as well as a dairy cooperative which produces Raclette de Savoie (PGI). A sales store with many local products welcomes you.
Also located near Grenoble, the nut is rooted in local habits.
The traditional habitat is characterized by its adobe constructions and its offsided roofs in tortoiseshell.
