The Region

Nature, authentic and conserved

We are in the Jura, one of France’s most beautiful regions, located between Switzerland and Burgundy. We have a continental climate and beautiful, changing mild mountain landscapes with many lakes and waterways, offering visitors multiple opportunities for discovery amidst the pristine and ever-changing nature.

Clairvaux-les-Lacs is a village of 1500 people at an altitude of 523m, in the heart of the lake district, ideally placed for any outdoors activity, from just strolling around in nature up to serious trekking or biking. It is the ideal starting point to discover the region’s many superb, but often little known, sights, sites and tourist spots!
