A great way to explore the wild open spaces in the area around Courchavon is to join for a rock climbing or hiking tour. Why don't you check out some winter activities while you are in this interesting region? Skiing is a good option. So is snowboarding.
Sometimes, the best travel moments are found in a region's cafés and restaurants. Why don't you try cuchole (saffron bread) or cholera (vegetable tart)? Both meals are popular in this region. And for the end of you meal, you can't say no to gâteau du vully (vully cake).
When it is time to leave Courchavon, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your Swiss francs, and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to this unique holiday spot.
