overview of the region

This gem of nature with lakes, verdure and woods, Vallée de Joux is a world apart with the shape of a closed basin surrounded by mountains. With a true charm and a palette of wide varying landscape, this region is an authentic representative of the Jura Vaudois.

Situated at a distance of 50 km north of Geneva and Lausanne, you easily reach Vallée de Joux by car or train.

In summer, hiking or mountain biking in the early morning, sailing, water-skiing or windsurfing in the warm afternoon – a discreet but efficient infrastructure allows you to enjoy a wide range of recreational activities in a heavenly piece of nature.

In winter, hundreds of kilometres of cross-country skiing runs and snowshoeing tracks will take you across wild nature. Downhill skiing enthusiasts have not been neglected: 9 skilifts and two ski schools welcome you. Also, different sledge runs invite you for another family activity.

Why not end your day relaxing in the Wellness center at the Sports Center? Then, a nice supper and a good night’s sleep in one of our hotels finally make your day a real pleasure.
