Langres: one of the 50 most beautiful cities in France. 12 towers, gates and seven ramparts of 3.5 km. With its high walls, its imposing towers, its many spiers, Langres appears as a proud fortress camped at the gates of the Champagne and Burgundy.

Lung air at the threshold of great Burgundy, green oasis, the country Langres provides an intense feeling of space and freedom. Renowned for the strength of its winter, the mountain Langres, located 500 m above sea level, has a good reputation. This is normal! Here life is tonic, invigorating and the corner fireplace is warm. The summer shows as much enthusiasm and warmth you will find the shade of the forests and the cool springs and lakes are all stops not to be missed!

The famous plateau Langres offers a diverse landscape of rare ecological quality, ideal for recharging.
