Lac de Chalain, JuraSite code: JU011
Jura is a land of lakes, waterfalls, mountains, thick forests and deep gorges with towering limestone cliffs. In fact, this area gave the word 'Jurassic' to the world. It is also home to the famous wine region of 'Côtes du Jura', where the oldest lineages of grapes in France are grown and local recipes have been handed down even from Roman times. From May to September you will hear warblers such as Chiff Chaffs and Black Caps, and see Chaffinches and Redstarts. Small brown lizards dart across the footpaths, and blue and green dragonflies can be seen by the water’s edge. Jura offers a wealth of natural wonders and a plethora of walking opportunities.
