I bet you haven't heard of Vallee de Joux in Switzerland?
Well this is a beautiful vallee, one of the 3 birthplaces of watches! So plenty of history here...
On top of it, this is a wonderful place to spend some time exploring the outdoors both in summer or winter. You can find more info on the tourism office website at: Protected content
If you do plan to come visit this beautiful region, I will be renting out my apartment as I will be on a work assignment. My apartment is cozy, well equipped, etc. but just let me know if you have an interest and I can send you some pictures or even do a live tour via the internet.
