The Source du Lison at Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne is a great natural site, with a nice waterfall and cave behind, a pool with huge rocks around, and another cave that can be visited by adventurous people! I hadn't expected it to be so interesting there, but in the end we spend 2 hours there. All sights are well signposted and there are also several information plates, in French, English and German.

The waterfall the the cave behind with the source are great, and there are also picnic benches - the perfect place! And this other cave, called "Grotte Sarrazine" is fascinating, a large cave system which had been quite under water when we've been there. But it was still interesting to go some steps into this dark cave!

Some kilometers away there's another interesting sight: the "Pont du Diable", i.e. Devil's Bridge. It's a small bridge for just one car, on the street from Crozet-Migette to Sainte-Anne. It's pretty high and I did not feel well at that place, as I'm afraid of heights!

For more details please see my Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne VT page.

Directions: 44 km south of Besancon and 13 km east of Salins-les-Bains. About 2 km from Nans-sous-Sainte-Anne at the end of a valley. It's well signposted in the village and there's a huge free car-park.
