Vosges, here we come! Along the way you'll come across some charming villages and you'll almost certainly love Circourt-sur-Mouzon. Once there, you can admire its hillsides and discover one of the special characteristics of the western Vosges: the calcareous grasslands with their decidedly Southern atmosphere including orchids and butterflies. Next, head for Neufchâteau, holder of the 100 Plus Beaux Détours de France label (100 Most beautiful corners of France), whose heritage sites are a living showcase for 1000 years of history. Don't miss the Renaissance staircase at the Hôtel de Houdreville!
After leaving Bourmont, the itinerary runs along a white route until you reach the district of Goncourt. The rest is asphalt-coated surfaces on low-traffic roads. You'll need to climb two hills: one between the district of Goncourt and Sommerécourt and the other after Circourt-sur-Mouzon to join the D1 local road, which will take you to Neufchâteau with only gentle slopes along the way.
- At Illoud (3 km from Bourmont), you'll find La Divine Fromagerie, (the "divine cheese works"), the production site for "Caprice des Dieux" cheeses.
