Hotel Chateau Sallandrouze  
 
  In the winter months, cross-country skiing enthusiasts can explore the frosted hills and forests of nearby Gentioux-Pigerolles (20kms from Aubusson). A little further away, in neighbouring Auvergne, the resort town of Mont Dore is to be found on the slopes of an extinct volcano. It’s a playground for skiing enthusiasts of every description.
