Arbois is a little town in the Jura in the heart of Franche-Comté lying in the golden triangle halfway between Besançon, Dole, and Lons-le-Saulnier.

Arbois is located in the unique setting of the Revermont countryside and has won numerous accolades as the Capital for Jura wines, the first vineyard in France to obtain AOC listing, as well as having been accredited as a remarkable gastronomic destination (site remarquable du gout).

The Museum of Jura Wines and Vines explores this gastronomic heritage to the full.

Arbois is also notable for its famous people who have won prizes, such as Edouard Hirsinger, a renowned pâtissier who lives in Arbois and who has been named one of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. You can of course taste his delicious creations in his shop in Arbois. And then don't forget Jean-Paul Jeunet whose restaurant has been awarded 2 Michelin rosettes.

But it is also the favourite town of one of the greatest of men, Louis Pasteur. This renowned figure spent much of his life in Arbois, and the house where he lived is now the Maison de Louis Pasteur where everybody can come and explore the great scientist's home and personal life. And for a spot of high culture why not go and visit the remarkable Sarret de Grozon Art Museum.
