Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Jura, France your home away from home

The Jura region of France is full of romantic valleys, lakes and forests, set against the mountain backdrop of the mountains which mark France’s border with Switzerland. The mountains attract skiers in the winter months and walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts during the summer, and there are chalets throughout the area catering to couples, families and groups.

Things to do in Jura, France

In the summer visitors can visit the wineries in the north of the region and sample the local ‘Vin Jaune’. Footpaths and cycle tracks criss-cross their way through the Jura valleys, taking in crystal clear lakes and spectacular alpine views which make for great photo opportunities in both summer and winter. Fishing is also popular at several of the region’s 70 lakes. It is also important to not forget the ski opportunities in the area, which is the mainstay of Jura’s tourist industry during the winter months.

Places to visit on holiday in Jura, France

There are several small towns within the Jura region which offer visitors a chance to get a feel for rural French culture as well as learning about the history of the region. These make excellent destinations at any time of the year and there are self-catering cottages and chalets sprinkled throughout the region around the many towns and villages. Lons-le-Saunier, in the centre of the Jura region, was first settled by the Romans who chose the area for its thermal springs. The area remains rich in attractions for visitors to enjoy, including museums of archaeology and art, as well as a modern thermal spa resort where guests can relax and appreciate the local scenery. Dole, in the north of Jura, has a historic quarter which provides some great examples of 16th century French architecture including the Eglise Notre-Dame. The fine art museum also houses both paintings and sculptures from across the Franche-Comte and the Burgundy region. Visitors to Jura will be amazed at some of the magnificent natural attractions of the region. The Baume-les-Messieurs is a spectacular 10m waterfall which is surrounded by a network of fascinating caves. The Vouglans Lake is one of the prettiest lakes in the region, found at the very bottom of a lush green valley, surrounded by forests and with beautiful turquoise waters.

Weather in Jura, France

The summers in Jura are warm but somewhat wet, with maximum temperatures of up to around 26C. Winters are much colder, with up to 8 months of snow – great news for skiers. A self-catering chalet or cottage in Jura can be the perfect place to relax on those cold winter nights after a day on the piste.

Ideal base for the Haute Jura

4 of 5
Even though we only had 3 nights in Bonlieu, the gite was an ideal, comfortable base from which to discover the area. Wonderful restaurant & bar at La Foret.
