The chalet is located in a unique location, at the gateway to the medieval town of Saint-Ursanne.
It is at the far end of Chemin du Bel'Oiseau and offers an ideal setting for children. A small stream adds charm to this idyllic and bucolic place. It is a ten-minute walk from the station along a pathway. The chalet offers two living areas – the Suite and the Cocoon – which may be rented either jointly or separately. Each has five beds, a bathroom and a large balcony. The Suite also has a kitchen.
The chalet is open year-round. Due to its large accommodation capacity, it is ideal for families and friends for leisure activities. The Doubs and its nature reserve are a three-minute walk away. The town of St-Ursanne is the starting point for numerous hikes. Many activities await you in the vicinity: swimming, treasure hunting by canoe, bike rental, archery, guided city tour, art exhibitions, swing golf...
Guests can even arrive on horseback and their mounts will be taken care of by a local farmer. We look forward to welcoming you here!
Your horses can be stabled with a farmer 1.5km from the chalet.
Price per horse/night CHF 30 including stable, water, hay and straw.
History of the venue
Formerly the barn of a house called "Paquaoile", the venue was first renovated as a Montessori school. The school operated for three years before being forced to close due to lack of official support. We quickly thought of offering it as accommodation for outside visitors. Today, we are delighted that we made this decision: it is an ideal place to come and unwind while enjoying what the region has to offer. Our values: High-quality construction, built with noble materials and with the greatest respect for nature. We only use natural cleaning products that are mostly homemade. When it comes to mealtimes, we offer local produce and homemade bread, for which we mainly use organic flour.
Our aim is to give you the warmest possible welcome and do everything in our power to ensure that your stay is enjoyable and that you leave feeling rested and refreshed.
With the Jura-Pass, make the most of free public transport and get reductions on a range of activities in the region.
