Château de Germigney
A rugged but serene paradise that stretches from Burgundy to Switzerland, the Jura is home to lakes, gorges, hills, and the Château de Germigney, a recently renovated 18th- century manor. Set in a manicured park with well-tended English gardens and linden allées, the former marquis’s residence has 21 guest rooms with wide cedar planks and yards of toiles and rich silks—a perfect spot for sampling the area’s pleasures. Sip the local golden vin jaune with nutty Comté cheese in the formal restaurant. For dinner outdoors, amble into the village, where the hotel runs a riverside bistro.
