Campsite in the Ain

Presentation of the Ain near the campsite.

Composed of the historical territories of Bresse, Dombes, Bugey and the Pays de Gex, the Ain has a rich historical and natural heritage to be discovered. Between the royal monastery of Brou in Bourg-en-Bresse, the medieval city of Pérouges, the covered market and half-timbered houses of Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne or the abbey of Notre-Dame des Dombes in Plantay, several Ain sites attract numerous visitors every year.

The Ain is also rich in varied natural environments, whose landscapes are closely linked to centuries-old rural and agricultural traditions: from the Bresse bocages to the Dombes ponds, via the large park of Miribel-Jonage, the Cerdon caves or the renowned bird park of Villars-les-Dombes, the natural sites of the Ain offer many possibilities for green outings and outdoor leisure activities. Although the Ain stretches eastwards to the Haute-Savoie and to the Swiss border, several unmissable sites are located near the Portes du Beaujolais campsite:
