In the heart of the Dombes lakes…
Nestling in a wooded valley, bathed by the Sereine, our hotel "Chez nous" in the heart of the village of Sainte-Croix proposes the prospect of beautiful discoveries with the proximity of the thousand lakes of Dombes, Beaujolais and of course the city center of Lyon and its hinterland.
Located in the south-west of Ain, the Dombes is a vast expanse dotted with nearly a thousand lakes, a privileged destination for nature lovers, a true haven of peace for lovers of green tourism and beautiful hiking, horseback riding or cycling.
It is indeed a mecca for ornithology but also a paradise for carp, roach and pike fishing enthusiasts, ranked first freshwater fish farming region in France.
Nestling in the heart of a 380-hectare nature reserve, the Bird Park of Villars-les-Dombes proposes visitors a real world tour with its more than 2,000 birds representing 400 species from five continents.
By taking the Route de la Dombes, a marked discovery route punctuated by thematic panels, you will discover many natural treasures as well as an architectural heritage that has remained typical, made up of adobe farms, half-timbered houses and castles, churches and red-brick fortified houses. The feudal castle of Bouligneux, the Plantay tower, the manor-like castle of Saint-Paul-de-Varax, the Notre-Dame-des-Dombes abbey, the chapel of Beaumont and its murals, the town of Trévoux - former capital of the principality of Dombes -, the medieval towns of Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne and Pérouges, or the basilica of Ars-sur-Formans, will be so many places to discover during this journey.
Do not hesitate to ask us, we will be happy to advise you and accompany you in the discovery of our region.
