The Haute-Saone, is one of 4 departments within the Franche Comte region of France. Nestled in the rural north east and bordered by the Champagne & Lorraine to the north, Burgundy to the west, Rhones to the South and Alsace & Swiss border to the East makes the region an interesting and varied environment for a holiday.

Haute-Saone and the Franche-Comte in general has a rich history, it is well known as part of the French revolution, playing a key role in the Resistance. Now it is well known for its delicious produce and cuisine.

As well as history the area has developed over recent years to provide a varied place to be whilst avoiding the heavy commercialisation that often comes with tourism.

Visited in August 2016

We werden hartelijk ontvangen door Lucille, wat een genot van een huis werkelijk van alle gemakken voorzien en lekker ruim van opzet. Grote keuken met alle apparatuur en grote woonkamer. Boven 2 slaapkamers met een badkamer, ook ruim van opzet met goede bedden. Grote tuin die aan de rivier grenst waar je heerlijk kunt vissen en er regelmatig watersporters voorbij varen. Voor het vissen heb je een "carte du peche" nodig. Voor vertier moet je niet in de Haute Saone zijn maar als je voor rust komt is dit de aangewezen plek om die hier te vinden. Message for Lucille: Thank you for your kindness en you are wonderfull.
