La Chaumière

To the south of Dôle, less than half an hour from Arbois, this hotel would make an ideal stop before or after a visit to the Jura wine region, but is also close enough to act as a base too. Do not be put off by the fact that it is close to a main road, it is set back enough not to notice. The 19 rooms have all been reasonably recently modernised and are very comfortable, with different sizes available at different prices. There is a comfortable lounge bar, a swimming pool and small garden available for residents. The restaurant has a well-deserved Michelin star and offers good value during the week, with the minimum set dinner price being higher on Friday and Saturday nights. Food is of a modern style with very good ingredients and a seasonal emphasis. The selection of Jura wines is inspirational, with owner-chef Joël Cesari being a big supporter of the region. Do ask for recommendations.
