A little bit of paradise called Jura in France

Bonjour beautiful people!  Jura is a delightful less well-known region of France. It is about 3 or 4 hours drive from Luxembourg and for some reason we had never been there. C’est dommage!  Jura is adorable and so calm (can you imagine somewhere in France free from tourist crowds? yeah!!!).


There is so much to explore. Plenty of interesting towns like Arbois, Poligny, Chateau-Chalon, Baume-les-Messieurs…All of them very much worth visiting. Stretching a bit further one can reach lake Chalain and the Herisson waterfalls.  An invigorating setting that lends itself to a fine array of activities: hiking, kayaking, skiing, trout fishing, thermal spa treatments… and tasting the local specialities, starting with comté cheese and the famous vin jaune of the Arbois vineyards.

So, less talk and more “images”. I hope you enjoy my pictures! 🙂


Hint: we stayed at Hotel la Fontaine (RN 83 Montchauvrot – 39230 Mantry). Excellent location if traveling by car, for a stopover near the A-29 and also to stay a little longer and explore the Jura.
