Validity of the stay

It is here, in the Jura Mountains, that Comté was born.
The first French cheese to be granted an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée 50 years ago, Comté is a unique product, natural and wholesome, made characteristic by its rich aromas.

From the dairy farms to the maturation cellars, via the production centres, discover its history and how it is made, and meet the men and women whose passion ensures that the cheese-making tradition and know-how will live on. From high up on its mountain pasture, the herd of Montbéliard cattle, the only race whose milk can be used for making Comté, is already awaiting your arrival!!
