You'll love this tour if you like:

The Jura, a region of forests, lakes and mountains in eastern France north of Geneva is one of France's most beautiful, yet least known corners. A delight for Francophiles - scenic beauty combined with historic interest and distinctive local cuisine and wine - this area is almost unknown in the UK, yet richly rewards the discerning visitor.
Highlights of our tour, from our base at the lakeside village of Malbuisson include Besancon, dominated by its medieval citadel, Ornans, the Vallee de la Loue, Arc et Senans, Arbois, the abbey at Baume les Messieurs and into Switzerland to the historic lakeside town of Neuchatel.
