Tourist activities to discover in the summer around Self-Catering Resort Métabief

With Switzerland close-by, the Alps in the background and a countryside setting with lakes and forests, you’ll be keen to discover the tourist activities on offer in the Jura from the Métabief Self Catering Resort. The region is intersected by a river bearing the sweet name of Doubs. To get to know the area, there’s nothing better than a cruise through the gorges, which take you between France and Switzerland. If you are sailing in the fresh water, don’t miss the Saint-Point lake, which is the 3rd largest natural lake in France in the Haut-Doubs, or the beaches of Grangettes and Chaon which have on-site facilities. If you are holidaying with children, the Parc Polaire animal park is sure to give them goose bumps! Yaks, aurochs, reindeer, huskies... meet the wildlife of the High Arctic!
If you like heritage sites, the old fortress town of Besançon and its Vauban fortifications, which are UNESCO world heritage sites, must be at the top of your list of things to see! If you’d like to cross the Swiss border, consider adding the Vallorbe Caves to your tour, and the Grandson Château.
