Nicknamed the "Nice of the East" because of its mild climate, Vesoul benefits from excellent facilities, including a recently built hospital and a train station with a journey time to Paris of 3.5 hours. It also offers a good range of easily accessible cultural facilities including a theatre, museum and cinemas, and a series of free concerts on summer evenings.
