  • Great site worth the trip. Pity that the Abbey is closed at this time. Don't hesitate to go to the waterfall to the tus.

  • Nestled at the bottom of the remote, the small village of balm the gentlemen is a must-see in the Jura. In addition to the beauty of the place on the map, you can visit the Abbey, the caves and wander close to beautiful waterfalls.

  • Do not hesitate to go to the bottom of the remote as worth the effort. Very shady forest, a small bar where one can rest her tired feet. What could be better?
