Treffort and its Savoyard past
The village of Treffort is only 15 km from Bourg-en-Bresse, and the maze of narrow, steep streets throughout the village are lined with lavish houses and winegrower’s homes, countless fountains and a traboule passageway.
In the centre of the village there is a church and château, an indoor market with impressive wooden beams, where you can still picture what life was like here in bygone days.
In the heights of the village, the fortified castle is evidence of Treffort’s Savoyard past. Nearby, the church of Notre-Dame awaits. Inside this classified historic monument, there are 29 wooden stalls.
In Treffort, you’ll also enjoy exploring the streets lined with flowers, the Plate washhouse and a beautiful, landscaped footpath. If you’re looking for family-friendly walks, pick up a copy of our sightseeing booklet.
