Around Paladru Lake

This long trip around Paladru Lake from Charavines is ideal for Ebikes. It explores a wealth of local heritage, visits the east bank of the lake and offers some remarkable views. The itinerary is in the process of being waymarked It starts mainly on quiet country lanes, first heading towards the woodland of the Combettes valley where a hairpin bend leads up to Le Vernay on the Oyeu plateau. After crossing the road (be careful, despite the traffic island!), a pleasant dirt track takes you to the old Carthusian monastery of Sylve Bénite and the tithe barn set amid beautiful meadowland on the edge of the forest. Cross Chassigneux hamlet and the village of Le Pin, where you’ll find a café and a bakery. Just after the village, take the dirt track to Valencogne via the bucolic valley that follows the Le Pin stream. Once past the lovely Vivier lake, take the time to enjoy the panorama from the heights. The spectacle on the horizon encompasses Mont Blanc and the Bauges, Chartreuse and Belledone mountains, if you please! The following descent takes you quickly back to St-Pierre de Paladru and across the Courbon stream which leads to the lake. You’ll then join the cycle path at Chemin de la Véronnière, and the Véronnière picnic area which you'll find at Montferrat. This safe itinerary follows the banks of the blue lake to Charavines via the Bois d’Amour woodland trail which features an eco-friendly drinks/snack bar, and platforms offering panoramic views over the lake, to really finish your excursion in style!

Vasselin Belltower Clock

Vasselin Belltower Clock

This clock dating from 1926 was designed by "L.D. Odobey Cadet Morez du Jura" and purchased with funds donated by parishioners and town councillors and the proceeds of a tombola. Background: On 3rd April 1926, the Vasselin village council discussed a project to install a clock in the church belltower. The Lyon firm CHARVET proposed 3 clock faces for a price of around 6,000 francs. The Mayor pointed out that 3,000 francs had been donated by Mr. REYNIER and another 2,000 francs by Mr. APPRIN. The council members (Joseph CHARY, Marius AUDOUAL, Jean-Louis BLANCHIN, Constant GUILLET, Louis VARNET, Antoine GARNIER, Désiré GUILLAUD, Joseph GUILLET, Jean BLANC and Joseph CHOLAT) decided to each donate 100 francs in order to reach the estimated sum. On 16th May 1926, the village council decided to ask Mr. PAULIN to install the clock for a fee of 7,300 francs. On 22nd August 1926, the council voted to entrust the scaffolding to Mr. DREVON to allow 3 holes to be pierced to accommodate the clock. Because the cost was higher than expected, a tombola was organised to raise extra funds. The clock mechanism was installed on the 2nd floor of the tower, just below the bells. On 2nd October 1926, Mr. PAULIN was paid 5,000 francs to install the clock. He was to receive the balance on a later visit to Vasselin after ensuring that the whole mechanism was working properly. Mr. CHARVET also received 10 francs for the glazing. On 11th November 1927, the Council engaged Mr. Joseph BLANC for the rewinding and maintenance of the clock mechanism for the sum of 100 francs per year. On 13th February 1927, after the tombola had taken place and all the bills had been paid, the sums were done and revealed a leftover sum of 2,106 francs. After 75 years of good and loyal service, the mechanism was still in working order, but required some maintenance work. On 18th May 2001, the clock maintenance company suggested the electrics be updated to standards and an electronic clock installed. But the Town Council decided not to replace the original mechanism with an electronic one. Instead, a decision was taken to bring it down from the tower and install it in a weatherproof cabinet where it would be better protected and easier to maintain.
