The warm wooden floors, skylights over the living and kitchen areas, and floor to ceiling glass balcony doors from which you can look down on to the lake give it a wonderful ambience. The lake has lots of areas suitable for picnicking, swimming & boating; water birds, reeds and aquatic plants. There is heaps to do in the immediate locality, eg hiking trails, apiary, Fort Saint-Antoine fromagerie, l’abbye de Montbenoît. Many alpine plants grow in the area. The following overview of the apartment is not an exhaustive description, but highlights aspects of it which stood out & appealed. The web-site inventory, which lists all the chattels, fully accorded with what was available in the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped with all the modern cons needed and is highly functional. The appliances include a dishwasher, a coffee machine, kettle, and micro-wave. The conduction stove with touch top controls is great for speedy cooking. The main bedroom & smaller 2 bed (single bed and trundle bed) room both have nice views onto the forested mountains behind Malbuisson. There is ample storage in the main bedroom & a full length mirror fronts the built-in wardrobe. The double bed (1.4m x 2m) is very comfortable. The second bedroom has a set of drawers, & full-length mirror fronted cupboard. The bathroom contains a spacious shower box, with a good shower, heated towel rail, washing machine and ample storage. The entry area has lots of roomy, convenient storage. The main living area has pleasing to the eye, interior angles which follow the shape of the roof (as does second bedroom). The couch and lazy-boy recliner with foot stool are comfortable. The flat screen TV with integrated in DVD / CD player worked perfectly. The entire apartment has ample & excellent lighting (for readers). The location of the apartment is convenient to both the lake & the village. It is just two minutes by foot from the apartment down to the lake. Three to four minutes in the other direction are the local supermarket (wide selection of products), the village bakery, post office, tourist office & a number of good restaurants. Apartment has off-street, b4 door parking (garage available), is on floor 2, well lit, wide access staircase, used only by apt 12 & apt beneath. The owners of the flat were helpful, hospitable, & welcoming . They speak French, English & some German.

Its location is perfect for exploring the Jura area. The house is excellent decorated and comfortable, includes all the useful equipment and furniture, new bathrooms and kitchen. The house's keepers are very friendly and ready to help with any question. Anyone staying here will have a great time.
