Mountains, Lakes and Villages in the Jura

More ideas from John Scallon at his Burgundy B&B – but don’t forget your passport if you follow John’s idea for a great little excursion in the Jura:

Take a drive up through the high Jura to La Cure (39 Jura, BFC) on the French/Swiss border above Les Rousses and catch the little mountain train (times below) down to the Swiss town of Nyon, stroll down to the lake shore and catch the lake steamer across to the lovely floral village of Yvoire (74 Haute-Savoie, Rhône-Alpes), crossing the border back into France again en-route!. Yvoire has recently celebrated it’s 700th anniversary  Stroll around the village, the Chateau gardens (the chateau itself is a private home and not open to the public) and ramparts, or just choose a nice restaurant for lunch. (see www.yvoiretourism.com)

Swiss Rail, in partnership with the Lac Leman Boat Company are offering a return from La Cure to Yvoire and back, train and boat for €29 . If you just want to take the train down to Nyon and back, the fare is Chf.26.80 (about €19). 2006 prices
