Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Doubs, France your home away from home

Doubs, known as France's greenest department lies in the Franche-Comte region of France, bordering Switzerland. The wonderful mountainous countryside, littered with huge lakes, cascading waterfalls and deep caves is an absolute joy to explore on foot or from the saddle, and walking and riding holidays from Doubs gites are some of the best in the whole of France.

Things to do in Doubs, France

Walking and riding holidays are fantastic from Doubs accommodation. There are almost limitless routes to take throughout the countryside, and hiking maps are available from tourist information centres throughout the department. Throughout late spring, summer and autumn, villas in Doubs are in high demand from discerning tourists wanting to discover this completely unspoilt, rural department.

As well as being a haven of tranquillity in the summer, the winter months see Doubs turning into a winter sport hot spot. The Jura Mountains are filled with ski resorts and snow parks for snowboarding. It is rare to find such a fantastic region for Alpine skiing remaining peaceful during the winter, but from a chalet in Doubs, this is exactly what you will find. Doubs is surrounded by vast ski domains offering a huge range of skiing country, from the virgin snows of the forests to fearsome black runs and open learner slopes providing a wonderfully varied skiing holiday.

Franche-Comte is also known as the "French pantry", due to the wonderful food and wine for which the region is famed. Lovers of fine food will certainly be happy in self catering Doubs accommodation, and there are ample opportunities to try the best, whether in local restaurants or at home, having picked up the freshest local ingredients from the many weekly markets which tour the towns and villages throughout the department.

Places to visit from Doubs, France

The Swiss Alps are wonderful for exploring by car from a Doubs property. The charming Swiss Alpine villages are as beautiful as they are on the famous chocolate boxes, and if you are looking for somewhere to walk off lunch or have an afternoon ski, the Swiss Mountains offer a great alternative to the peaks of the Jura Mountains of Franche-Comte.

Weather in Doubs, France

During the summer months, Doubs is surprisingly warm. Although a good jacket is always recommended for a walking or riding holiday in Doubs, daily temperatures during the summer months usually hover around the low 20's (C). Winter is another matter of course. The altitude means that temperatures come crashing down, but that brings some excellent snow to the regional ski resorts.

Flights to Doubs, France

Basel and Lyon Airports serve the Doubs department. Both are a little over an hour away, and a hire car is needed when staying in Doubs accommodation.

Lovely Apartment

4 of 5
This lovely apartment in the quiet village of Montfaucon is an ideal base for exploring Franche Comte. The apartment was comfortable, spacious and had all the amenities needed and was set in a beautiful mature garden. Annie and Pierre were wonderful hosts who gave us great recommendations of restaurants and where to visit.
