The people of Les Breuleux are typical francs*-montagnards**. Set amid beautiful sun-drenched mountain pastures dotted with woods, the village embodies all the charm and character of Franches-Montagnes, the 1000-metre-high plateau in the Jura mountains that borders the French region of Franche-Comté to the north east. Birthplace of the eponymous horse breed and a centre for watchmaking, microtechnology and renewable energy, it’s a surprising blend of rustic authenticity and cutting-edge technology, tradition and modernity, hard work and hospitality.
* Franc = free, open-minded, spontaneous, sincere, clear, direct, honest, loyal, simple, natural, pure
** Belonging to / inhabitants of Franches-Montagnes, or the “free mountains”
