Enjoy a gourmet hike stopping at two métairies - farmhouse inns - on Montoz, one of the peaks of the Grand Chasseral region. Explore the typical landscapes of the Jura crests and the Montoz region on this trail combining nature pure and culinary discovery.

Stopping at two must-visit 'métairies' in the Grand Chasseral region, on this gourmet trail along the Montoz heights you can enjoy a range of local products. After the climb up from Malleray or Péry you are rewarded with a three-course meal (apéritif, main, dessert) served in a farmhouse inn typical of the Grand Chasseral region, where you are guaranteed a warm welcome and plenty of conviviality. Book your gourmet hike now to the métairies of the Grand Chasseral!

Warning: this walk is recommended for good walkers. Some sections may be difficult to access.

Three itineraries are suggested: 

Angus itinerary 

From the Péry train station, you will go up to the Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte, where a local aperitif will be served. Then, you continue by the heights of Montoz in direction of the Bergerie de Malleray to taste a delicious Angus steak produced on the farm and to finish sweetly with an iced dessert. 

Total walking time of about 5 hours. Péry train station - Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte : about 1h50. Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte - Bergerie de Malleray: about 1h20.

Rösti itinerary

A second itinerary leaves from the Malleray train station. After the walk up the hill, you will taste a sausage as an aperitif at the Bergerie de Malleray, before continuing to the Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte to taste the traditional ham-rösti served in the farmhouses, with a dessert proposed by the house. 

Total walking time of about 5h15. Malleray train station - Bergerie de Malleray : about 1h50. Bergerie de Malleray - Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte : about 1h20.

Family itinerary

For families, we advise to park directly at the Bergerie du Pré-la-Patte or at the Bergerie de Malleray, then to make a loop passing by the heights of Montoz. For the children, ham will be served instead of Angus steak at the Bergerie de Malleray. 

Total walking time of about 2h45.

When registering for the family itinerary, please specify in the remarks from which metairie you wish to depart (the farmhouse you're leaving from is the one where you'll be having your aperitif).
