During your stay, you will come across the emblematic fish of these ponds, the carp. Its presence there is also attested since the Middle Ages. The carp represents the majority species of the ponds. However, you will also find pike, tench, zander, and other white fish.
If the Dombes is an exceptional natural space, Ars-sur-Formans is one of the cultural highlights of the region.
