"Meetings and Discoveries" to explore Saône, Dombes and more

Between Saône and Dombes, which makes the wealth of Kanopée Village in the Ain, it is first of all the beauty of its natural décor, the softness of the silver wave caressing its flanks, the charm of the bucolic landscapes of the « country with a thousand ponds ». « The spectacle of nature is always beautiful, » Aristotle said.

But the richness of Kane Village does not stop at its natural setting. It is also due to the quality of the characters. Small towns of character that animate its territory.

Trevilot, the former capital of the Principality of Dombes, Vonnas, the gastronomic mecca signed Blanc, Bourg-en-Bresse, the jewel of flamboyant Gothic love, Villars-les-Dombes, the European paradise of birds, Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne, the « little Venice », Perouges, the medieval city of the Musketeers…

Draped in its cultural heritage, each of these six small towns is a complex character, made up of history and art. Each of these characters generously opens the doors of his living heritage, and invites you to explore all the wonders, perched on the wings of a pink ibis or curled up in a romantic carriage.
