MORNING: Musée des maisons comtoises - Nancray
Imagine an open-air museum spread over 15 hilly hectares, where you can wander from a vegetable garden to a 17th-century Comtois farmhouse, from a duck pond to a traditional oven, from an orchard to a clock-making workshop... there are plenty of other surprises in store for you at the Nancray museum, a museum unlike any other, which skilfully blends Comtois rural heritage, entertainment and reflection on the social issues of the future. It's a rural getaway in a showcase for sustainable development, focusing on the relationship between man and nature.
The site has a restaurant right in the heart of the museum, open every day in season.
AFTERNOON: Grotte d'Osselle and leisure centre
Both a historic monument and a geological phenomenon, the Grotte d'Osselle is one of the most astonishing caves in the world. For the beauty of its natural setting, the variety of its crystallisations and colours and its prehistoric treasures, it is one of the jewels of our natural heritage. Visited for centuries, it's also an ideal place to take cool refuge from the heat!
Information on guided tours and prices on the Grotte d'Osselle website.
After this not-to-be-missed visit, enjoy a moment of swimming and relaxation at the Lacs d'Osselle, Greater Besançon's nature reserve. The leisure centre offers free access to a large area with restaurants, a terrace, a children's play area and a boules pitch. There is also paid access to the beach with supervised swimming (opening times), a beach volleyball court, a picnic area and paddle and canoe hire. An ideal place to have fun, discover new things and recharge your batteries with friends or family!
