Ornans - Tourism in the Doubs

Nicknamed the little Venice of France-Comté, the town of Ornans is very charming with its beautiful old houses built on stilts reflected in the waters of the River Loue. This picturesque scene can be admired from the Grand Pont bridge and the footbridge which span the river.

To visit: the Courbet museum, located in the birth house of the painter Gustave Courbet, which exhibits numerous works by the famous artist.

Sports fans can canoe-kayak on the River Loue to their heart's content.
