As a non-designated ‘holiday zone’ it is impossible to purchase in Jura and the surrounding area unless you are considering relocation.
The Jura, an almost entirely French-speaking canton, is made up of rolling countryside, dark scented forests, small villages and elegant towns, all exuding a dignified, historic and distinctly Gallic air.
There are numerous excellent public schools within the Jura and in the surrounding communities.
All winter and adventure sports are well-catered for in the Jura - hiking, sailing, golf, horse riding, cycling, skiing and cross-country skiing, to name a few. Safety standards are notably high making this the perfect place to bring children and introduce them too the joys of outdoor sports. The possibilities for exploring the great outdoors in this area are year-round and almost limitless.
