Welcome to Le Doux Nid!

Do you know the incredible story of the smallest canal in France (the Savières Canal) and the largest natural lake (Lac du Bourget)? Once upon a time, Christophe and his father went to make their walnut oil in Chanaz, PETITE VENISE SAVOYARDE. It's simple, each time they visited the village, the conclusion was always the same: Chanaz is magnificent! Christophe opened his charming rooms in a former 18th century coaching inn, a small restaurant on the canal "Le Relais Gourmand" and then a rental business for electric boats without a licence "La Petite Evasion". You too will fall under the charm of the old stones of Chanaz, of its boat cruises, of the strolls around the craftsmen... Your senses will be awakened by the smells: of soaps and candles, coffee from the roaster, the walnut oil mill, bread baked in the baker's oven, beer from the brewer, and the chocolate factory. And to satisfy your taste buds, you can taste the local products in our restaurant.
