Sleeping among the animals 

Many lodges were set directly in the animal parks to guarantee a unique experience. Perched houses, in the treehouses or houses on stilts or troll in into the woods… what a unusual way to spend a night in Rhone-Alpes ! 

Discover our 15 lodges to spend a night among different animals : bisons, stags, deers, mouflons or even boars and their little ones !
