Places to Visit in Jura/Fribourg

The ancient town of Delémont dates back to 737AD and has a medieval centre. It was the summer residence of the prince-bishops from nearby Basel. Despite its long history it remains a small town of just 12,000 residents. It has a beautiful local church and a grand chateau, built in 1721. Just outside the town is the atmospheric Chapelle de Vorbourg, a pilgrimage site of monks situated on a forested crag beneath the ruins of a medieval castle. Saignelégier is the main town in the Jura region but is little more than a village itself. It has a railway station where bikes are available for hire, making it an easy day out. Head for the idyllic Etang de la Gruère lake or the Doubs Valley for some excellent walks. Porrentruy, close to the french border has a lovely old town centre with cobbled streets,  fountains and many 18th century buildings. It also has a 14th century bridge and an impressive chateau.

We wanted somewhere reasonably near Bern, self-contained and preferably detached, just for the two of us. Most detached properties in Switzerland are, it seems, chalets big enough for large families. In terms of its suitability for us as a couple this was a gem and almost unique! The listed description of this property is accurate. The house is of a modern timber framed structure, sympathetically furnished. It was certainly clean and everything that we needed worked. Anne and Brecht met us upon our arrival and explained everything. As a couple we found them personable and enthusiastic and, importantly, from this first meeting, we had the security of believing that if anything went wrong, either personally or with the property they would be more than willing to help. It's on the edge of a cluster of delightful villages in the wine producing and agricultural area of Mont Vully. The neighbourhood is very quiet and Chemin de Cible is bordered on one side by open fields. There are several restaurants in the area though a car is still essential to reach them. We liked the Bel-Air (it's best to telephone for a reservation) which also has a delightful café with tables between flower beds and trees right on the edge of Lake Murten. If you drive a short distance along the Route du Lac towards the top of the lake you pass a small supermarket and a Boulangerie selling amazing bread. Most shops close on Sunday but the Boulangerie is open as is also a Spar food shop attached to the petrol station near the roundabout at Sugiez. There's a large Migros supermarket on the approach to Murten. We had purchased a Swiss Rail Pass and Anne advised that Ins mainline station would be preferably to Murten station. She was quite right; Ins is about 15 minutes away with easy parking. Certainly rail is the way to explore Switzerland but local trips by car well worth doing would include Murten (plenty of restaurants), Biel (Saturday's are a good choice for the market). Friboug is steep for walking but has lots of history including the only waste water funicular in the world. It also has a great Starbucks coffee house if you are into UK style coffee culture! Neuchatel is very French and well worth a visit as is the watch museum at La Chaux de Fonds. As an alternative to the train there's a paddle steamer that cruises the three lakes (Murten, Neuchatel and Biel) through their interconnecting

Liz, the owner, was friendly and informative, and has done a great job making the chalet really very charming. Swimming in the pool looking out on the mountains, after a sauna, and then outside for a BBQ simply can not be beat! Thank you, Liz, I'm sure I'll be back when time allows!
