Between Dombes and Bugey

Holiday rents

What is it about ?

… of 2 small lodgings for 2 and 3 people, ideally placed for a discovery of the department of Ain

We, Danièle and Claude, offer 2 completely independent cottages adjoining our house. With a superb view of the Monts du Bugey, complete facilities, a swimming pool and everything you need for the children and animals that we welcome with pleasure.

Located on the borders of Bresse, Dombes and Bugey, between Lyon and Geneva, they are ideally placed to discover the countless riches of the region, on foot, on horseback, by bicycle or by canoe. The nearby river is ideal for fishing, swimming, padding, kayaking or canoeing. To recuperate from these exhausting activities, you can immerse yourself in the heated mid-season swimming pool, open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., with aquabike and swim against the current, or rest in sunbathing in the shade of the big willow for whether your child is playing in the sand or swinging.

Danièle and Claude
We will welcome you with great pleasure and will be at your disposal if you wish to be helped to discover our beautiful region or know our good plans.

While waiting for your visit, we are here to answer your questions.

 

Claude and Danièle, your hosts.

How is it at your place?

Well … it is a large house in the small village of Villette sur Ain which has an 18 hole golf course. On each of its wings is a cottage: Le Chêne, for 3 people and Chanteclair for 2 people; they both benefit from a superb view of the Bugey. A calm environment, very green, shaded and flowery, a large swimming pool with aquabike and swimming against the current complete the picture.

Our situation? Between Geneva and Lyon, in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes in the center of the Ain department. We put you a card here.

By pushing towards the Saône, beautiful things to discover like the sanctuary of Ars

Le Bugey

Very near, the medieval city of Pérouges will immerse you in the Middle Ages and Trévoux will restore the past of the autonomous Dombes to you.

And what do people think of you?

We took advantage of a comfortable studio, very well equipped and independent from the other rental as well as from the owners. A very clean swimming pool available all day for tenants and owners who are very discreet and charming, which makes the stay very pleasant. The area is beautiful, calm with lots of activities, canoeing, hiking, visiting fabulous monuments. To do without hesitation

Short but pleasant stay
Short but pleasant stay both in human and material terms. Danielle and Claude are extremely kind. The cottage is very well organized, everything you need in equipment for a perfect stay. The location is ideal for visiting the region rich in discovery. Plus the heated swimming pool in addition, perfect for relaxing and for the more athletic swim against the current. Our animal friends are welcome, which we greatly appreciated.

Wij hebben net onze derde vakantie achter de rug in ‘le chêne’: ons kleine paradijsje in het departement de Ain. Wat hebben wij weer genoten van ‘onze’ fijne gîte die van alle gemakken is voorzien (wasmachine, vaatwasser) de prachtige omgeving en het overheerlijke verwarmde zwembad! Onze kinderen (5 jaar en 1 jaar) hebben het ook geweldig gehad en hebben heerlijk kunnen spelen in de tuin en uiteraard zwemmen in het zwembad. De eigenaren Claude en Danièle zijn erg gastvrij, ontzettend lief, attent en staan altijd voor je klaar. Je hoeft maar iets te vragen of het is binnen no-time geregeld! Daarnaast hebben ze veel kennis van de omgeving en ze kunnen je voorzien van nuttige tips voor leuke uitjes. En niet onbelangrijk: Claude spreekt Engels en Danièle Duits.

Wij zouden het echt een ieder aanraden!

Thank you so much dear Claude and Danièle! See you next time!

We had a fabulous stay. A great location and just what we needed. Quiet and just to sit by the pool, relax and enjoy the views. The apartment had a good level of facilities. Our hosts were so welcoming. The village is well placed for exploring the area with fanatstic counrtyside for walking and cycling and some amazing medieval villages and towns within a short drive.

Séjour court mais agréable Séjour court mais agréable tant sur le plan humain que matériel. Danielle et Claude sont d'une bienveillance exemplaire. Le gite est très bien agencé, tout ce qu'il faut en équipement pour passer un séjour parfait. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter la région riche en découverte. Le plus la piscine chauffée de surcroit, parfait pour se détendre et pour les plus sportifs la nage à contre courant. Nos amis les animaux sont les bienvenus ce que nous avons fortement apprécié.

Une semaine dans l’Ain où nous étions parfaitement installés au « Chêne » chez Claude et Danielle (discrets mais pas avares de conseils et d’histoires locales). Un appartement où il ne manque rien, bien équipé de la cuisine à la chambre et le tout dans un calme reposant. La piscine nous a bien délassés par les températures caniculaires de la semaine où nous y étions. La proximité de Lyon pour les citadins, des lieux de recueillements gastronomiques, spiritueux et spirituels ou encore les paysages de l’Ain pour les amoureux de la nature sans oublier les sportifs en canoë, golf ou autres Via Ferrata. Voilà tout y est pour passer des vacances à sa convenance. ICI C’EST L’AIN. Merci à Claude et Danielle.
