A weekend of escaping into nature. 

Have you ever felt a compelling need for wide open spaces, calming nature and majestic pine trees that look as though they belong to a film set in Montana?

Here’s a 48-hour itinerary that promises a great breath of fresh air and will appeal to your wild side. And all of this in the Jura, the real Jura... 

Arrive the evening before, so you can make the most of the unique ambience of the Franches-Montagnes.

Ein schön eingerichteter Weg lädt zu einem kurzen mühelosen Spaziergang in dieses kleine Paradies ein.

11 legendary beers are waiting to be sampled at this local brasserie.

A sumptuous brunch from an organic farm is served every Sunday at the restaurant “Aux Couleurs du Terroir”.

You can enjoy free horse riding if you stay for two or more nights in the Jura from May to October!
