Escape to nature
Lakes, rivers, waterfalls, Lavours Marsh… Bugey Sud is characterised by an omnipresence of water in all its forms – take Cascade de Glandieu, the impressive 60m-high waterfall, or the much calmer, almost secret Lavours Marsh, one of the last remaining continental marshes in Western Europe. Wander along the new raised wooden walkway and look out for some curious specimens amongst the 371 identified species of plants found here.
The curve of the landscape is a trick of the eye – you only have to ask Tour de France competitors to find out! In 2012, 2016 and now again in 2017, the world-famous cycling competition keeps coming back, daring courageous cyclists to take on the Grand Colombier Pass (1,498m/4,915ft).
If you’re looking for something more relaxing, ViaRhôna cycle path takes you right through Bugey Sud before reaching the city of Lyon. The 50km-long track can be explored on roller-skates, bike or on foot. Perfect for all the family!
In vino veritas = In wine there is truth!
Bugey wines have received the Protected Designation of Origin (AOC) certification since 2009, guaranteeing an excellent quality. Where the vines cross the border of Bugey Sud, the sun-soaked hillsides enrich the wine’s personality. Whites, reds, rosés… The extensive range of wine produced in the area is due to the diversity of clay-limestone soils found here. All across the region, the irresistible sense of hospitality creates a welcoming atmosphere in the vineyard.
The vineyard, which has been certified by the Vignobles & Découvertes label, mobilises its employees in order to facilitate your stay here and guarantee a high quality of service. Quality is very much in line with wine production, which producers take care to uphold, never compromising for easier and cheaper methods.
