Dark green landscapes, deep valleys, gentle hillsides and a very rural atmosphere. There's no doubt about it: you really are in Doubs!
Camping holidays in Doubs
Welcome to Doubs! Very close to the Swiss border, the Ballons des Vosges Nature Park and the mountains of the Jura, Doubs will be a place to enjoy a nature-packed holiday!
Here, nature is peaceful and lush: a little walk along the banks of the Doubs River or in the Loue Valley, with its spring, its high waterfalls and its deep gorges will demonstrate this to you!
With hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and even winter skiing, sports and leisure activities will feature strongly on your holiday! You'll also be able to explore the splendid villages of Ornans, Lods and Cléron, beside the Loue. An atmosphere of serenity emerges, and art enthusiasts will be able to make the most of this by a brief stop-off at the museum of the artist Courbet.
You really mustn't leave Doubs without trying some of its fine food either! Mont d’Or and Comté cheese, Morteau sausages, cold meats and plenty more. You'll be able to buy these delicious local goodies directly from the people who produce them!
The largest town in Doubs is Besançon, a small but thoroughly delightful town with a peaceful atmosphere. Its ancient town centre still bears the marks of its Gallo-Roman and mediaeval past. Enjoy a stroll along the banks of the Doubs, in the park of La Gare d’Eau or in the Micaud park, before climbing up to its Citadel, which looks out over the town from its hill. The zoo and museums are also worth visiting!
You'll also be able to detour slightly to the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans: this huge, half moon-shaped 18th century building, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a venue for concerts and exhibitions.
