Hotel Cascade at Moutiers-Haute-Pierre.
Both Poligny and Arbois are interesting villages, with places to stay, restaurants and wineries. Besancon and Dole are somewhat larger, but really great.
Thank you. I will have a look at it.
We stayed for a week in Salins les Bains and visited Arbois and Ornans. They are both attractive towns. It is a lovely region with beautiful natural scenery, sources of rivers, forests. The day we visited Ornans we stopped at Ouhans to see the source of the Loue which is very impressive. Then down the gorges of Nouailles into Moutier Haute Pierre. There are several lovely villages such as Lods you could visit if you are there for a couple of days. From memory (it was 2008), Ornans had a picuresque old town. We walked a circuit. Cannot advise on staying there. Arbois was very nice. We were there in early Spring and there was so much water flowing in the streams. It was very impressive.
We really enjoyed the Jura. There are some wonderful cheeses -comte, morbier, bleu de gex - and smoked meats and sausages (morteau and montbeliard ) and also very nice wine around Arbois as well as "vin jaune " from Chateau Chalon.
Enjoy your stay.
We visited Ornans last year. It's a place I would happily stay. It has a great museum, and we stopped at a really good butcher shop there. You can read a little about it on the my blog post for that day: http://mainelywinenews.blogspot.com/search?q=ornans
Thanks. Sounds beautiful.
Thank you. Loved reading your blog. Very. helpful.
