Beautiful, tasteful apartment on the river front
We have now stayed a few times at Bishops Rest & it gets better each time. The antiques, collectibles & stylish interior set this apartment apart. It's not surprising the owner was a well known Basel interior designer. The beautiful riverfront garden creates a peaceful haven in a charming Swiss village. We hope to return again next year. Highly recommended.
Thank you F.
It is always nice to know that you appreciate our efforts to make your stay a pleasure and , as you know, you will always be welcome at Bishop's Rest.
Erholsamer Aufenthalt als 4köpfige Familie
Sehr wohnlich eingerichtetes Appartement mit vielen Dekoelementen, sanft renoviertes Haus und Möbel: ein Hingucker! Gute Matratzen, gut eingerichtete Küche, mit allem was man braucht, wenn man selbst kochen möchte, sonst ist es bei Patrick erhältlich. Sehr idyllische Lage, Auto empfehlenswert. Schöne Spaziergänge direkt ab Haus. Für Sportliche ganz toll mit dem Velo. Super Ausgangslage, um den Jura zu erkunden und man abends trotzdem seine Ruhe haben möchte. Erfrischendes Bad im Flüsschen direkt beim Haus (nur für gute Schwimmer). Sehr angenehme und hilfsbereite Betreuung, können es nur weiterempfehlen. Einzig ein gedeckter Sitzplatz hat uns gefehlt, da es bei uns leider oft geregnet hat. Fam. Schlegel, Grabs
A charming, comfortable and inspirational oasis
From the moment we arrived at Bishop's Rest, it was everything and more than we expected. Patrick had waited to welcome us and show us around our accommodation which was very comfortable, clean and well presented with bags of character and style. The extensive gardens run down to and alongside a river which is not only visually stunning but simply a beautiful place to sit and read and relax. A dip in the river was sufficiently reviving to enable us to dance in the evening at an excellent local music event. Patrick recommended we ate at the Buffet de la Gare in Porrentruy which we did and the food was very good indeed. We would definitely recommend Bishop's Rest to family and friends. Actually, the whole property could be reserved for friendly gatherings. The train stops at Courchavon which is only a short walk away. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

A great -stay!
Wir fühlten uns superwohl in Bishop's Rest. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat alles, was einem die Ferien geniessen lässt. Die Umgebung ist wunderbar. Wir genossen die vielen Sitzplätze am Fluss, am Haus, unter dem Felsen. Besonders gefallen hat uns das Baden im kleinen Flüsschen Allaine, die Nähe zu Frankreich, die Möglichkeiten für Bike-Touren und Wandern. Patrick ist ein sehr liebevoller Gastgeber. Also: Jederzeit wieder!
Thank you for your for the review, It was a pleasure having you as guests and you will always be welcome at Bishop's Rest.
Wonderful, relaxing holiday in the lovely Ajoie
We spent a very enjoyable 10 days at Bishop's Rest at the end of July. Patrick is a charming, helpful and considerate host. The ground floor apartment is clean, well-furnished and equipped with everything required for a comfortable stay.
It is an ideal location for walkers with a network of well signposted walking trails starting 50 metres from the house. The proximity of a train station with a regular hourly service allows easy access to many destinations in north west Switzerland. Ideal for those wishing to leave the car at "home".
Bishop's Rest is a great place to relax and "recharge the batteries" and a place where Monty(the black and white Springer Spaniel) and I hope to return in the near future.
Thank you C. for your review. I am pleased that Bishop's Rest and the facilities available were able to insure that you had an enjoyable stay. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again at anytime......with Monty ofcourse
Located just 3km from the historic medieval city of Porrentruy in the canton of Jura, this riverside property has 8'000 square meters of gardens and fields with intriguing rock formations there is even a cave, making it the perfect setting for exploring this part of Switzerland or for just relaxing in the region known as the Ajoie, for insiders this region is one of Switzerland's best kept secrets.
It is the ideal setting for outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horse riding. There is also an excellent golf course nearby.
The limestone caves and the traces left by dinosaurs in this region are well worth a visit.
The city of Basel is within easy reach it is great for shopping and is packed with museums, world famous art galleries and many different restaurants.
The French border is just 20min away with antique shops and markets in abundance, not to mention the the various vineyards.
