Welcome to Grange de la Batone, an old farmhouse of the 18th century renovated with passion and located in the heart of a small village in the Ain "département", called Messimy-Sur-Saone.


We welcome you 30 km north of Lyon for a one-day break, a weekend getaway to visit the region, or for a family or professional event. The Grange is located between Beaujolais and Dombes, near vineyards, castles and ponds. Access is very easy by the A6 motorway just 10 minutes from the interchanges.


On site .... Lulled by the singing of birds or of our hens, you will enjoy the terraces, the pool, the large garden, the orchard, the henhouse ... and relax in the shade of the giant cedar while savoring the calm !

In the courtyard or in the garden, according to your desire ! 

The river Saône flows at 700 m from the Grange... Beautiful walks on the towpaths for an escape without taking the car.There are a lot of possible escapes in the region for all tastes : Culture, gastronomy, heritage, sports….

We lend you bicycles.

n.b: We are currently expanding the site of La Batone to later propose a cottage with more rooms ...

The Château de Fléchères

Majestic mansions are lining up along the left bank of the river Saône on its way to Lyon…. The most beautiful one is undoubtedly the Château of Fléchères, magnificent castle of the 17th century that is awaiting your visit at just 10 minutes from the Grange.

Vineyards tour

Go on a getaway in the vineyards of Beaujolais and its golden-stone villages just 20 minutes from the Grange.

At only 17 km, Le Hameau du Vin, impressive museum of wine crafts, is a must for the real amateurs of ‘’crus’’ or for simple onlookers.

Le Parc des Oiseaux

This is the must of our region: one of the most beautiful ornithological reserves in France, located in the middle of the Dombes plateau whose many ponds are a sanctuary for migratory birds and local ones.

Le Parc des Oiseaux is a delight for children and adults. Our advice: plan the full day !

Tourism and Heritage

Lyon is only 30 km away, Villefranche-sur-Saône 10 minutes away, and a little further you can visit the medieval city of Pérouges, one of the most beautiful villages in France.

La Grange is also an ideal base to visit the heritage of the Lyon region and the beautiful terroirs of the Ain département, or to make a cultural break at the gates of southern France.

. . . bike rides

The paradise for bike riding is just around the Grange : have a ride on the romantic banks of the river Saone with splendid views over the Beaujolais and Bugey hills and mountains, along the old towpaths or through countless byways. Away from the traffic, your eyes will thank you !
