Walking in Dombes

Inhale, exhale you’re in Dombes

La Dombes, land of a thousand ponds, imagine it as a festival of colors, scents and sounds. The deep blue of the water contrasts with the multiple greens of the vegetation. The intermittent concert of frogs is accompanied by the songs of wild birds. Stop for a moment and watch the ballets on the calm waters of the ponds. Perhaps the grey heron, master of the place, will honor you with its presence!

So, what could be better than a stroll to visit and discover the Dombes in slow motion?
