Burgundy

Champagne

 
Champagne Located between Paris, Belgium, Luxembourg and Lorraine, the French region of Champagne-Ardennes is famous for its bubbly wine: the one and only real champagne.

Fabulous Rivers Doubs

 
Fabulous Rivers Doubs The Department of Doubs is home to some of the best river scenery in all France. The Loue is described separately but the Doubs, itself, the Lison, the Hrisson and the Dessoubre all present outstanding valley views. The falls of the Herisson should definitely be on your must visit list but you may prefer not to arrange this for a weekend - masses of French people and their children will be there to appreciate it and it's noisy - like NOISY! The sources of the Lison and the Dobs are other special places. The Dessoubre is more unsung but tis source at the Cirque de Cosolation should on no account be missed....
 

Loue Valley

 
Loue Valley This is a wonderful valley in the Department of Doubs. Its source is immensely picturesque with pools and waterfalls and just about every mile is a delight. A splendid camp site is described under accommodation for Franche-Comte. The village of Ornans is worth a visit and the stretch from the source to Ornans may well be the very best - but don't miss the rest!. As well as very picturesque houses overhanging the river, it has a museum devoted to Courbet, who did much painting in this area....
