The Mont des Cerfs lodge at an altitude of 1235 m, in a typical setting in the midst of pastures, is the ideal place for a gourmet stop-over, in summer as in winter. It is open all year, except from mid-November to mid-December and from mid-March to mid-April.

The Mont des Cerfs lodge, an ancient cheese dairy, is situated in the heart of Jura pastures and offers a friendly and authentic ambiance to passing visitors. It is close to the walking trails in summer and the ski slopes and snowshoe trails in winter.

The specialities include the Bressane fondues and bourguignonne or meat on slate. The ice-creams (vanilla, raspberry, mocha and chocolate) and the absinthe parfait are homemade.
