Mépillat Lake

Walks and Hikes

From large expanses of green dotted with lakes up to the foothills of the Jura, through the forests and hedgerow plains, the Burgundian Bresse area offers a large gamut of landscapes, which you can discover along numerous hiking trails. At the water’s edge, in the woods or in the plains, you will always find a way for a nice and easy family walk or for a sportier outing.

Make the most of your stay in our region to discover the wonders of nature and its magnificent landscapes. In the Bresse area you will find so many opportunities for a change of air, for relaxing moments: come and explore the richness of the area while spending pleasant and resourceful holidays!

On foot or on a bike, could there be a greater luxury than discovering our beautiful region at your own pace and rhythm, starting directly from the *** Domaine de Mépillat campsite or from one of the surrounding must-sees?

There are always brooks, small streams running not far from here. Why not follow the harmonious meanders the water has sculpted in the landscape and let yourself be surprised along its course by its soothing murmurs and babbles or by its pattering waterfalls, until you reach stretches of smooth water and enjoy its cool and refreshing touch?
Did you know nearby our campsite you can find stretches of sand as fine as the beaches of the French Riviera?

You may also combine hiking and discovery of the Bresse cultural heritage: some circuits will take you from local farms, typical of the region, to former wash-houses and tileries named “carronnières”.
