Le Plateau des Milles Etangs :

A Very particular place : between Lure, Luxeuil and Ronchamp over 30 square kilometers, a thousand of natural lacs provide a superb view and very special places.

These lacs formed at the end of the last ice age. When melting, the ice retired and formed these lacs. It modeled a very spacial topography. The ice eroded the very old rocks and sediments. The result is a succession of meadows, forests, moors, little rivers, making from this place the perfect partner for a ramble!
