La Pierreuse, which is French for "the stony one", is situated in the alpine foothills, on the left bank of the Sarine, south of Chateau-d'Oex, and is 34 square kilometres of pure mid-mountain landscape. It stretches along the Gummfluh and Pic Chaussy mountain ranges.

The name is quite telling: the area is littered with rocks. In this site of national importance there are cliffs, flower-strewn alpine meadows, flat moors, evergreen trees, deciduous forests and numerous birds. Lucky visitors may even get the chance to observe golden eagles, falcons, and black grouse. Take a day's hike from the mountain station of the Videmanette cable car through La Pierreuse and over four hills to L'Etivaz.
