Located 15 km northwest of Annecy, Choisy belongs to the natural area of "Les Usses". It lies between "les petites Usses" brook on the west side at an altitude of 390 m, and the Mandallaz mountain on the east side. The site is characterized by a great landscape quality with 70% of space arable land and 20% of forests.
Population: Since 1975, the demographic rise continues. The population doubled in two decades (1,247 inhabitants at the end of 1993). One third of the population is less than 20 years old. This evolution is mainly due to the installation of new inhabitants working in the Annecy and Geneva area.
About thirty craftsmen and tradesmen, with a great majority in the sector of the building, exert on Choisy. There is no industrial activity. Agriculture remains the dominant activity with about thirty exploitations in dairy production. The youth of the majority of the farmers and their dynamism are a guarantee for the safeguarding and the quality of the landscapes. Their Cooperative dairy collects 3,5 million liters of milk transformed into Abondance or Emmental cheeses.
