Blu Plateau
Distant horizons
Panorama Panoramas exceptionnels

Located 357m above sea level, the Plateau de Blu offers a magnificent panorama over the emblematic and symbolic landscapes of the Côte des Bar. The view appears boundless. Stretching away to the horizon is a long succession of small hills and vales, almost parallel and covered with vines. As the slopes recede into the distance, their hues range from dark to light. The subtle play of shapes and colours is what makes these landscapes so charming; it is a landscape of sequences and strips of land. On a clear day, the Cross of Lorraine in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises can be seen. 

The villages are concealed within the greenery and the vines play hide-and-seek with visitors, gradually coming into view on an exposed slope, between two forests or on the plateau. The forests are not restricted to the plateaux alone but follow the lines of certain slopes, border the roads, intersperse the fields and run alongside waterways. Agricultural plots can be discerned on the plateaux, at the edge of the forest, on slopes less conducive to vine cultivation and on the valley floor. All of these features make the Côte des Bar unique and are easy to identify from this panoramic viewpoint.
