The Jura is a beautiful region of many lakes, many mountains and some forests. The lakes are crystal clear, and many of them have tributaries which pass through dramatic gorges and over impressive waterfalls before they come to rest in the lakes. The best places to stay in the Jura offer their guests the perfect base from which to explore both the culture of the region and its glorious countryside.
Set amongst this idyllic rural scenery are numerous pretty towns and villages, around which there are a number of well known 'cirques' or routes, great for walkers, cyclists or a relaxed drive. The unique local cheeses and wines will help you enjoy yourself, and you'll find many opportunities to sample them.
In winter this is one of the best places in France for cross country skiing, and the whitened backdrop is just as spectacular.
Charming 17th century convent conversion in Jura. Peaceful and clean rooms with original features. Outdoor pool, garden, and solarium for catching the rays or star watching. Plenty to see in the local area and hotel bikes to borrow. A relaxed choice with charming homely touches.
A former hunting lodge surrounded by lakes and charming villages. Luxurious interiors include romantic rooms and suites with four poster beds, glorious salons, and two restaurants, one with a Michelin star. Natural water swimming pool and close to the mountains. Stunning!
