On a terrace above Lake Saint-Point, between water and forest, the village of Malbuisson stretches for two kilometers between Vézenay, a formerly separate village, and the forest of "La Fuvelle". At the beginning of the 20th century, Malbuisson saw a significant expansion with the development of tourism, made possible by the construction of a railway line named the "Tacot" between Pontarlier and Foncine. Then classified "station climatérique" (alt. 900 m), Malbuisson became a pleasant destination for the rich people of Pontarlier and Besançon, but also for Parisians. Since then, the economy of the village has developed mainly around tourism and continues by offering:

  • Nordic skiing, Mountain bike trails, hiking or snow shoe excursions in the surrounding mountains
  • boating, pedal boats, fishing and swimming in the lake
  • hotel establishments and restaurants, and shops offering local products
  • nature reserves
  • Geography

    Malbuisson lies 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Pontarlier on the Lac de Saint-Point.


    Malbuisson is a village typical of the “Franche-Comté” region, located on the edge of the Saint-Point lake, at an altitude of 850m to 1000m, close to the landmark of the area: Le Mont D’or at 1463m.


    In addition to tourism, Malbuisson has one of the last cheese factories to produce Comté cheese in the traditional fashion in big copper cauldrons.
