Mépillat Lake

Leisures, sports and nature

The Bresse region is an amazing natural playground.

Whether you are in for sports, ready for adventure, a nature lover or simply a holiday maker looking for a relaxing moment in the middle of nature, you will find here a large gamut of activities to indulge in with friends and family or simply by yourself.
Impossible to get bored with us.

In the Bresse region, the water and the wind have patiently given shape to the wonderful landscapes which are now the pride of this region. If a stay at the *** Domaine de Mépillat campsite will allow you to take the most of these natural jewels, it will also open up possibilities for you to discover nature more closely or on a sporting note.

The Bresse region offers a multitude of green expanses and wooded areas. Time has come for you to become one with nature in an “active” way. For those who do not have vertigo, let yourself be tempted by a tree-top adventure course in the middle of a century-old oak forest and have fun with the family all day long. If you would rather enjoy a greater surge of adrenaline, and at the same time admire a lovely panorama, the steep hills and cliffs will welcome you for a breath-taking via ferrata overlooking the valleys.

Water meets the eyes everywhere: you will easily find pools, at the edges of which you will spend pleasant, relaxing moments, enjoy fishing or indulge in much more invigorating activities, such as water sports and many other entertaining, recreational activities on or in water.

Finally, if you would rather discover the natural richness of the area, you will be spoilt for choice with all the activities relating to flora and fauna. Bird-lovers cannot miss the nearby park where they will marvel at Europe’s greatest number of birds. Children will love meeting and taking selfies with farm animals in the farms of the area. The admirers of the plant and animal kingdom will have the opportunity to discover unknown species of plants and trees, to sail peacefully and calmly along canals to meet wild species living in this protected natural environment.
