  • Description

    Description

    My family lives in a small village on the eastern border of France in the Jura, the lakes and forest region. Even though it is a small village we have all the necessary shops, services and restaurants (takeaways). We have a private lake with a private beach and we have a boat, guaranteed weekend pastimes going out on the boat, water skiing. The house is situated in a large park, close to nature and peaceful but within 10 minutes walking distance from the centre of the town.
