Tourism around lake

 

Our village is placed in the heart of our region on the plateau. The altitude is about 800 m. This place was called “little Scotland” because of the landscape’s similarities. It’s also compared to Canada because of the lakes and her color in autumn. Each lake has his identity.

 

The belvedere placed on the cliff in front of the Holidays homes offers a point of view on the four lakes. Ilay, with a little island and water-lily. Little and big Maclu and their turquoise color. Narlay with the form of a heart. Woods overhang them.

 
You will discover the different colors of the lakes thanks to the shale that compose them, and appreciate the vegetation of meadow and forest of fir tree. Colors vary with the sun and seasons. Along the cliff there is “le pic de l’aigle” with a panorama of 360°. There you will see lakes and Mont Blanc. You can also walk or ride along pathways around lakes.

 

• The lake of Bonlieu with his mysterious aspect is beloved by the walkers.

• Lakes of Chalain, Vouglans, Clairvaux les lacs near Le Frasnois let you make the most of nautical activities. (Water game in Chalain, cruise on Vouglans and his bam)

 

The village is also surrounded by waterfalls really different from each other. The most famous are hedgehog waterfall (cascade du hérisson). Waterfall of Langouette and Billaude are really impressive by their rate of flow. You can visit sources, losses of l’Ain (pertes de l’Ain) and fishing, canoeing…

 

The village was in the past Agricola and kept his authenticity . Big herds of cows and aurochs are in the meadow around the lake. Jura is really famous for cheese “comté”, and those “d’origne et appellation contrôlée”, but also for the wine (jaune, de paille), vineyards and beautiful villages from Revermont.

 

Pathways in woods around, really nice in summer bring coolness and a lot of variety of landscape. Doe, roe, birds and chamois will charm your walk. During summer you will be able to pick strawberries and raspberries (boil them!). During autumn you will appreciate wonderful and warm colors and pick mushrooms.
