The Jura range of hills and mountains are not always the first choice of the
British holiday-maker, but those who have visited the area are enthusiastic in singing

The Jura offers countless kms of well-marked walking paths through forests of
pine, beech and birch, with fantastic views across Lake Geneva to the alpine peaks
beyond. On the lower slopes of the Jura the many quaint villages have managed to
preserve their identity, and a driving or cycling tour through these will reveal
many pleasures. The slopes are home to many vineyards, and wine-tasting is a favourite
way to spend an hour or two.

The Campsite Val de Bonnal is actually in the region of the Doubs, not the Jura.
It also enjoys a lakeside setting and is within easy reach of Besancon, about 40km
away. The Doubs region is one of the prettiest in France, characterised by forests,
rivers, gorges and historic small towns.
