Discover the Jura, Doubs and Ornans
“WHEREVER THE COMTÉ FLAG FLIES, YOU’RE AT HOME, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE!”
The natural setting of the Loue Valley in eastern France is brimming with activities. Landscapes full of character, recounting local history: discover an unspoilt world. There are numerous marked trails for cycling and hiking and activities for all tastes, including canoeing, rock climbing, via ferrata or even caving.
If you take the time to look and listen, you’ll find stunning, rich heritage along your path. Head out and discover the history of Doubs and the Jura Mountains, where culture and traditions are carried on in museums recounting the memories of past centuries. Museums celebrating Comté customs, wine, cheese or the famous local painter Gustave Courbet (National Museum in Ornans, with temporary and permanent exhibitions).
Nearby, the town of Besançon (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), with its historical centre of far-away origins, offers a wide range of museums, visits and splendid architecture (the Citadel and the fortifications of Vauban, the astronomical clock, the Museum of the French Resistance, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Time and the zoo). Then follow your heart’s desire along the roads of our incredible Franche-Comté region, discovering the Royal Saltworks in Senans (UNESCO), Château de Joux, Dino-Zoo, the Osselle Caves, the Nans-sous-Saint-Anne tool-making site, the medieval town of Nozeroy and its show, the lakes and waterfalls of the Jura Mountains, vineyards producing famous vin jaune and straw wine…
