La Bicyclette Bleue

French in La Dombes

This laid-back family affair is in Joyeux, 7.5km southeast of Villars-les-Dombes on the D61. It specialises in La Dombes staples, including frogs' legs and chicken. It also rents bicycles (per hour/day €5/18) to explore 12 mapped lakeland circuits, from 12km (one hour) to 59km (four hours).
