Franche-Comté

Located to the south of Alsace, the historic province of Franche Comté boasts a varied landscape ranging from flat plains to dense woodlands, rugged dramatic mountains and limestone valleys.

A little-known area of France, Franche-Comté has retained an atmosphere of unspoilt nature and uninterrupted tradition, making it a fascinating place to visit. Tucked against the Swiss border, guarded by the undulating Jura mountains and sparsely populated, it is an ideal region to escape the pressures of everyday life. Its villages present an idyllic picture of stone cottages, winding lanes and medieval churches, and many afford stunning views of the surrounding scenery.

The capital, Besançon, sits comfortably in a loop of the River Doubs and is a vibrant city with a burgeoning music scene, a keen interest in the arts and a list of monuments to rival the greatest cities. The Granville Palace, cathedral and Astronomique Horloge are all must-visits. Still, the smaller features give Besançon such a charming character: fountains fill squares with the sound of trickling water, and the bookshops and cafés offer residents the perfect spot to watch the world go by. The Citadel is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to several fine museums.

Providing the chance to explore untouched valleys, sun-dappled forests, and beautiful villages, a walking or cycling trip to Franche-Comté gives the sense of uncovering a secret and precious jewel to all who venture there. Franche Comté is really made up of two regions. The high valley of the Saône is wide, gently rolling farmland with a certain rustic simplicity. At the same time, the Jura mountains are more rugged, with dense forests, sheer cliffs, craggy limestone escarpments and torrents of clear, sparkling water rushing through deep gorges. It is for this thrilling scenery that Franche Comté is best known. Nature lovers can climb, bike, hike in the mountains, or explore the hills honeycombed with over 4,000 caves. The streams and lakes provide world-class fishing, while the spa towns of Salins Les Bains and Besançon offer relaxation and a chance to ‘take the waters’.

The region has a rich architectural heritage dating from many different periods and features medieval abbeys and châteaux and a poignant chapel in memory of the war. Roman remains, fortresses perched on cliff tops and elegant spa towns can all be explored at leisure. The region’s position, bordering Switzerland and close to Germany, is reflected in its culture and the great diversity of architectural style in the many fine buildings.
