Le Jura is close to Burgundy, why didn’t I visit it before coming to Australia….Le Jura produce some very good wines, some will say the best in the world, they even call it a wine of kings for the kings…, I think it is a bit much, it is a very acquired taste, it can be very very old like 40 years old. Just call it the real name “Vin Jaune”but don’t expect to be like any other wines you taste before. The Jura is full of lakes and old mountains, not very high for very picturesque, the high Jura, on the way to Switzerland has many ski stations.
Chateau Chalon, beautiful medieval town with many remnants of old castle
Jura wine region in November, beautiful gold colour everywhere.
Chateau Chalon from the air…Time to get the bike of the trailer and go exploring little villages
Summer or winter theses road will take you safely in some of the best places in the Jura
Dream come thru, the house, the restaurant, the bike and the wife…
littles road suitable for walking, biking, riding or driving will take you to all sorts of villages
Nothing like a cup of coffee somewhere near a peaceful lake
beautifull littles roads for walking, biking, riding, or driving
Endless walk around lakes
Follow the cascades of the Herisson, seven of them in total, 8 kms about 3 hours ascending 250 meters.
In the old days I guess the horse was pulling…
La Chaux des Crotenet where I use to go on school camps 60 years ago, deserted today, like everything 60 years on…
I hope I’m like this one day, 96 years old. But I have to live in the country, in a small village with no TV or internet, only a few relatives and a few friends. Not many of either one…
After a good walk nothing like a crepe with honey
After a hard days at the office nothing like a glass of Pinot from Burgundy, no Vin Jaune from the Jura….Few of my friends won’t agree, but such is life in a camping car, I will be gone before they find me :-)
