It’s a great starting point for walks, and day trips to the many historic villages in France such as Oingt. Cogny is 30 minutes N of Lyon: known for it’s historical and architectural landmarks as well as exceptional culinary tradition, the town is also a 2 h train ride S of Paris and 2h car drive from Geneva and the surrounding alps.
