Jarville-la-Malgrange on the Lunéville road was a favourite holiday destination for the dukes, and later for royalty. It is linked to Nancy by a tree-lined avenue. However, more recent history – the industrialisation of the late 19th and early 20th centuries – had the most visible impact on the town. This made Jarville a natural choice of venue for the History of Iron Museum. (Montaigu Château, set further into the park of the same name, is part of the neighbouring village of Laneuveville-devant-Nancy.)
In Renémont wood, you will find the Fonteno stream, which runs down from the Brabois Plateau via Houdemont to Embanie Park in Heillecourt. This completely natural, unspoilt environment offers the ideal conditions for biodiversity to thrive.
Jarville opens out onto the Meurthe Plains to the south-east, towards Art-sur-Meurthe. The imposing silhouette of the 17th-century Charterhouse is easy to spot.
