Your holiday home in the Jura borders Switzerland and is located south of the Vosges. This mountainous region guarantees a relaxing holiday in the middle of nature. There is plenty of woodland and there are several lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Ideal conditions for various outdoor activities! Go mountain biking, horse-riding, kayaking, fishing, golfing and, in winter, even skiing. Moreover, the Jura is an ideal holiday destination for hiking enthusiasts! There are several routes along waterfalls, through the most beautiful pine forests and overlooking deep valleys. After an active day in the fresh air, you deserve a relaxing evening. That is why many of our holiday homes in the Jura have a lovely outdoor terrace or seating area!
During a holiday in the Jura you can't avoid the lakes, rivers and waterfalls. It's a real paradise for fishing enthusiasts too; you can fish for carp, pike and trout to your heart's content. At the Lac de Nantua, for example, you can relax in the sun while waiting for the fish to bite, and enjoy the beautiful nature. Are you more of a swimming enthusiast? Then the Jura is the ideal spot for you too! There are plenty of crystal clear, blue lakes where you can take a refreshing dip. The facilities around these lakes are often very good too, making them an ideal place to spend a day with the whole family. Or perhaps just mess around and 'bomb' your family in the pool at your holiday home in the Jura!
A holiday in the Jura will centre around the natural world and the corresponding opportunities. But there are plenty of culture-based activities too!

The wine village of Château-Chalon is also worth a visit thanks to the authentic streets that lead to the rolling vineyards. Do you like to going to a museum? See the first Peugeots from the early 1900s at the Musée Peugeot in Montbéliard or learn about the history of glasses at the Musée de la Lunetterie.
