Musée de la Bresse - Domaine des Planons

The Planons estate, a fine example of typical Bresse architecture, has been the location of the Musée de la Bresse since 1995. The tour of the house (1490), restored using traditional methods and faithfully reconstructed according to a 1784 inventory found on the premises, reveals a remarkable Saracen fireplace. The outbuildings present chicken farming in the Bresse region together with collections illustrating rural life. The carefully recreated kitchen garden and the park activities make the visit even more fascinating.
