This eastern province of France
lies against the border of Switzerland
. Franche-Comté is made up of the departments of Doubs
with its pass at Joux bringing you to Switzerland, the rolling-mountain area of Jura
, the Haute-Saône
through which the Saône River flows, and the Territoire de Belfort
– home to the Peugeot automobile museum
in Montbéliard. The Savoureuse River runs for 40 kilometres though the city of Belfort to the town of Sochaux. Staying in a villa rental is a popular alternative to staying in a hotel. Staying in villas can bring you into historical settings. There are villa rentals in the countryside. Vacation rentals are set up to feel like your home-away-from-home.
During the summer time, take in the grandeur of one of the largest lakes in France – Lac de St Point
. Boat trips down the river Doubs - stepping on the boat at Villers or Dôle – or starting at Gray and going down the Saône, is naturally beautiful. The Vauban citadel and cathedral in Besançon
- the capital city of Franche-Comté – has earned the designation of being an UNESCO world heritage site. It has been labelled as the Petit Louvre as this is the city which houses the oldest public art gallery in France with a collection of work created by the old-world masters as well as 19th Century French art. Nearby, you can see historic houses of the 17th to 18th Centuries at the open-air museum in Nancray
Skiing at the small ski resort of Metabief-Mont d’Or in the Doubs area adds to the pleasure of a wintertime holiday
. The ski resort of Les Roussess in the Jura Regional Park is very popular, as is boating and swimming
in Lac de Chalain in the Jura hills. Stay in chalet rentals instead of staying in a hotel for your holiday lodging. View all the photos and read the detailed descriptions accompanying each vacation rental accommodation.
Have the conveniences of home in a holiday setting
. With fully-equipped kitchens, and often with a Wi-Fi so you can stay connected, vacation rentals are privately-owned holiday home accommodations.
