This is a wine-lover’s dream. Keeping watch on the edge of Revermont, Château-Chalon is the “beacon” of the vineyard. Legends and history become one here in one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”, birthplace of the famous Vin Jaune (“Yellow Wine”).
A “blind valley”, four belvederes, a cave, a cascade and an “imperial” abbey... These are just some of the treasures buried in the spectacular site of Baume-les-Messieurs, one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”.
This city of wines, where Jura’s own Louis Pasteur grew up, is a lively town: you won’t be able to resist wandering around the old market town, built in yellow ochre stone, and stopping for a meal at a gourmet restaurant. A short way away, Poligny, the capital of Comté, invites you to taste the “Prince of Cheeses”.
The Sites & Paysages (Sites and Scenery) network comprises more than fifty 3 to 5-star campsites across the most beautiful regions of France, where you can get back in touch with nature and meet people passionate about their region. You’re sure to have a unique and unforgettable experience.
