camping trevoux

Itchy feet? Leave the heights of your chalet on stilts and head off on an exploration of the wonderful surroundings of Kanôpée.

Opposite me, the Saône, to my right, the Cascades, to my left, Trévoux!

To start off, let’s head to Trévoux.
The ancient capital of the Dombes is one of the 100 “most beautiful detours of France”. And this old town “of art and history” is indeed worthy of several detours. Don’t miss out on the art: a tour of the workshops and galleries on the Rue des Arts, meeting the artists and their knowledge: painting, stone sculpture, sewing, traditional gold leaf, clay nativity scenes, metal jewelry, cardboard objects…


Don’t miss out on the history either: the painted ceilings of the 17th century parliament building, the museum “Trévoux and its treasures” to appreciate the singular history of this ancient capital of the diamond industry, the Carré Patrimoine and its collection of 119 earthenware apothecary jars, the fortified castle and its panoramic view across the plains of the Dombes, the Beaujolais and the Saône valley.


The Saône, exactly.
Head out along the Saône, which, not content being a superb river, is also a superb place for entertainment. A bit of zander fishing from its banks . A good walk along the 14ks of towpath, or depending on your fitness levels, a trip in a kayak or a restaurant cruise.


Happy as a fish in water? Not quite yet.


Finally, direction the Cascades leisure centre. 1800m² of heated pools, a 42m long water slide, a 5 lane multi-slide, a geyser, a tidal pool and a kiddies pool… In summer the Cascades is the ideal place to combine water, sports and fun filled activities. This vast playground has a cool zone with a trampoline and bouncy castle, ping pong tables, volleyball court and children’s playground. And it’s even possible to have an introduction to scuba diving or pony rides;


No more itchy feet?
Go back to the warm and inviting chalet on stilts, settle in comfortably on the terrace, and enjoy the wonderful show nature has put on for you…
