Neighbouring La Vattay is the centre for cross-country skiing. In summer golf can be enjoyed at Divonne-les-Bains and the man-made Lac de Divonne offers sailing and watersports. There are popular hiking trails around the lake and beside the Divonne River. A trip to Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) offers the chance for a cruise across the scenic lake in an old paddle steamer to the Swiss villages of Vevey and Montreux.

The chateau is privately owned but the gardens are open to the public and are called the Jardin des Cinq Sens (Garden of the Five Senses). Art galleries, shops and cafés can be enjoyed along with a peek inside the 11th century Saint Pancrace with its onion-shaped dome.

A great stay in a fantastic house - Exceptionnelle

5 of 5
The house is beautiful and very comfortable to live in re: temperature, facilities, etc. Also very well situated for lakes at les Rousses, just over the border in Switzerland, and of course the heights of the Jura. Thank you to Martine and Francois for their warm welcome (our kids loved the chocolate cake in particular) and for thinking of everything! Un grand merci pour un accueil sympa et une maison exceptionnelle. Mark & Natasha

Amazing place and host.

5 of 5
-An exhibits a prime location in the rural mountain of Jura, about 45 minutes of Geneva airport. Host was welcoming , very helpful and friendly, Simply with her, you will feel at home. There, we enjoyed charming nature, clear sky. Great place to relax and get away from the bustle of everyday life. Linen was very clean, crisp and white and amazing towels. Wifi was a good speed and fresh flowers tea, coffee and breakfast was provided in the room. We had booked it for one night only and wished we could have been there longer. There were so many personal touches that made this visit an experience to remember. Definitely going back to this enchanted place. Special appreciation for madam NICOLE ZORN. Best regards N'daa
