    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    130 allée de Flechères F - 01480 Fareins

    The restoration of a monument can be an intense and moving process. This was certainly the case when work was being carried out on this château, where a host of discoveries were made. From the outside, the architecture is striking in its originality:..

    Nature and gardens

    Le Frambourg F - 25300 La Cluse-et-Mijoux

    Nature and gardens

    F - 25330 Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne

    At more than 50m deep, this corrie is certainly impressive in terms of size, but it is made even more so by the peculiar light that prevails here. In a way it represents a glimpse of the underground course of the River Lison, whose official source co..

  • 14 Grotte Sarrazine Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    F - 25330 Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne

    The 90m-high grotto gapes open in a sheer, wooded cliff, forming an enormous natural porch. You can get the best idea of the size of the cave when it is dry and you can venture inside. When it rains the resurgence that pours out of the cavity, which ..

    Nature and gardens
