Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Doubs

Malbuisson - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Doubs

In balcony above Lake Saint-Point, between water and forest, 900 meters, the village of Malbuisson stretches for two kilometers from the hamlet of Vézenay, formerly the village in its own right, and the forest of Fuvelle. It dates here a tradition of hospitality and gastronomy that has not diminished over the years. The forest, which covers about half the municipal area (300 ha), offers nature lovers and sports trails cross country skiing, mountain biking and hiking trails, all marked, to discover the beautiful landscape of Upper Doubs.

If you prefer the lake itself, the choice is vast in terms of water sports on offer (sailing, boat, paddle boat, lifeguard). Anglers can tease seasonally pike or whitefish. At the water's edge, a trail circles the lake and passes near the swimming complex that allows in summer to enjoy safe swimming pools and a water park with slides and water games.
