Lullin is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It borders the communes of Vailly, Orcier, Habère-Poche and Bellevaux. The river Follaz goes through the town before flowing into the river Brevon, which in turn flows into the river Dranse, which eventually flows into Lake Geneva (French : lac Léman). The commune of Lullin includes several hamlets such as Pimberty, La Siaux, la Touvière, La Grange des Bois, Le Feu, Très-le-Mont, Chez Dagain, Vauverdanne, Monterrebout, Les Courbes, Les Granges, Recueillères. Its highest point is Mont Forchat (1545m).

The commune is a level of administrative division in the French Republic. French communes are analogous to civil townships and incorporated municipalities in the United States and Canada, Gemeinden in Germany, comuni in Italy or ayuntamiento in Spain. The United Kingdom has no exact equivalent, as communes resemble districts in urban areas, but are closer to parishes in rural areas where districts are much larger. Communes are based on historical geographic communities or villages and are vested with significant powers to manage the populations and land of the geographic area covered. The communes are the fourth-level administrative divisions of France.

Haute-Savoie Department of France in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes

Haute-Savoie is a department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of Southeastern France, bordering both Switzerland and Italy. Its prefecture is Annecy. To the north is Lake Geneva and Switzerland; to the south and southeast are the Mont Blanc and Aravis mountain ranges. It holds it name from the Savoy historical region, as does the department of Savoie, located south of Haute-Savoie.

In the administrative divisions of France, the department is one of the three levels of government below the national level, between the administrative regions and the commune. Ninety-six departments are in metropolitan France, and five are overseas departments, which are also classified as regions. Departments are further subdivided into 334 arrondissements, themselves divided into cantons; the last two have no autonomy, and are used for the organisation of police, fire departments, and sometimes, elections.
