Welcome to KanÔpée: A luxury stay on the banks of the river Saône
Canopy. This name has a “je-ne-sais-quoi” ring to it, something exotic, ethereal, which says it all. That’s canopy. As your eyes rise up to the sky, they are bathed in an ocean of greenery. That’s canopy. No sooner does your imagination take you elsewhere, to the enchanted summits and verses of Baudelaire:
“There, everything is ordered and beautiful. Luxurious, calm and delightful”
Luxury, calm and the delight of the Flowers of Evil, Matisse’s paintbrush has coloured the water, the air and the land, and where the team at Kanôpee invites you to revisit.
Kanôpee is a “Campsite and Cottage” we say, “prime destination”: people come to Kanôpee.
People come to Kanôpee, only 30kms from Lyon to enjoy the environment that a ‘sites et paysages’ campsite offers with its label ‘Qualité Tourisme’
People come to Kanôpee for an out-of-the-ordinary stay in a Chalet on stilts with a panoramic view over the Saône. Or to enjoy the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms of a superb mobile home, with direct access to the heated pools at the Cascades, the leisure centre next door.
People come to Kanôpee, to delve into the heart of the “land of art and history” of Trévoux, one of the “most beautiful detours of France”, or to set out on a discovery of the 10 vintages of the Beaujolais, the “most sensuous of vineyards”, designated a UNESCO Global Geopark.
People come to Kanôpee, and sometimes it happens, that having reached the summits, people stay at Kanôpee. In the overriding calm of the village, the luxury of the comfortable accommodation, and the delights of exceptional surroundings.
