Hotel Chateau Sallandrouze  
 
  The Creuse boasts many large and lovely lakes on which you can sail, water-ski or canoe. Fishing enthusiasts can hunt the elusive pike amongst the wooded islands of Lac-de-Vassivière (one of which houses a major centre of contemporary art), while adrenalin junkies will be better served by the area’s lively rivers.

Kayaks are available for hire from Hôtel Château Sallandrouze, or you can take a course with the school for kayaking in Aubusson.
