Les Authieux-sur-Calonne is a commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region of north-western France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Altaréens or Altaréennes.[1]


Les Authieux-sur-Calonne is located some 55 km north-east of Caen and 27 km south-east of Le Havre. Access to the commune is by the D534 road from Cormeilles in the south-east which passes through the north of the commune and the village and continues to join the D675 just west of the commune. The D140 road goes south from the village through the length of the commune to Le Mesnil-sur-Blangy in the south. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of La Route de Blangy, La Boudiniere, and La Grenterie. The commune is mostly farmland with some scattered forests.[2]

The Calonne river forms the north-eastern border of the commune as it flows north-west then west to join the Touques at Pont-l'Évêque. Several tributaries rise in the commune and flow north to join the Calonne including the Douet de la Thibaudiere, the Ruisseau des Rebutieres, the Ruisseau du Val Plot, and the Ryisseau de Manoir.[2]

In 2010 the commune had 294 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]

Notes and references


  1. At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, 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 in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
