Things to do

Métabief is only a small village, but the surrounding area is simply gorgeous. It is a faboulous resort whatever season, and as well as the outdoor activities, which are plentiful, there are also gastronomy and natural attractions. There really are very many reasons to take a holiday apartment in Métabief.

-Skiing of course is one thing you really should do here in Winter. As part of a community of small resorts there are 26 ski trails available, over a 40 kilometre area, and you are guaranteed to find one that is at your skill level. All the equipment you need is available for hire here. When tired from skiing. why not take a relaxing sleigh ride.

-The Grottes de Vallorbe is not too far a drive from holiday apartments in Métabief. Situated on the Swiss side of the border, these beautiful limestone caves are worth making the trip to. The caves, with an underground river, take about an hour to explore. There is also a display, in four domed rooms, called the “fairies treasure”, of over 250 mineral samples from all over the world.

-The Chateau de Joux is only a short distance away in Pontarlier and makes the perfect day trip for the family. This castle, perched on the edge of a cliff, overlooks the surrounding French and Swiss countryside. Guided tours of the Chateau take around 90 minutes and once inside, you soon discover why they need to be guided; getting lost in this magnificent place would be easy. The Source de la Loue is not far from the Chateau de Joux so if you wanted you could include it in your day trip. This beautiful natural grotto, at the bottom of a cliff, has a crystal clear spring flowing from it.

-Arbo’Land in Métabief is a great fun filled place to visit. This park has 6 adventure courses of various difficulty with walkways high in the trees, flying foxes and zip lines. There is also the Doo’gliss, a 100m long slide, with twists and turns, you travel down sitting on a rubber ring. Also while there try the archery. You follow a course trough the pine trees shooting at hidden targets as you discover them.

-Culinary tours are a popular pastime, particularly with summertime visitors to Metabief holiday apartments. There is a strong cheese making tradition in the area and various cheese tours are available including to one of the main refining caves. There are also farm tours, a honey centre and a liqueur distillery to put on your tour agenda.

The weather in Métabief

Light, airy, clean apartment, superb location

5 of 5
Having spent a week in this light, tastefully decorated apartment, we can highly recommend it. 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.

Great Apartment

5 of 5
We have enjoyed very much staying at this house on Apr 2012. 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.
