The geological term Jurassic is taken from the great arc of limestone that forms the mountain range of the Jura, which partly lies in Switzerland. The department boasts dramatic gorges, caves and chasms carved out of limestone. Water rises everywhere resulting in springs, rivers, cascading waterfalls and still, tranquil lakes. In the summer months stay in a holiday home in the Jura department and savour this stunning department on foot, by bike, or even on horseback. Lakes and rivers offer the chance of canoeing, fishing or leisurely riverboat trips. Rent a Jura holiday rental chalet or house and explore the fantastic countryside

The climate of the Jura varies greatly by elevation. The lower valleys are temperate and pleasant, but the high mountain valleys have bitterly cold winters. Jura is a wine-growing region producing distinctive wines, such as vin jaune.

The capital of the Jura is Lons le Saunier. A picturesque thermal town, founded in 1892, the spa is still in operation today and caters for almost every need from simple relaxation to complex health regimes.

Lons-le-Saunier's other claim to fame is Rouget de Lisle - who composed a war song in 1792 - later known as the French National Anthem or 'Marseillaise'.  There is a Musee Rouget de Lisle - a reconstruction of the composer's home.

Arbois is the key town of the wine region in the Jura. Arbois is also famous as the birthplace of Louis Pasteur, and his house and laboratory can be visited.
