  • Envy of nature, of rest (while moving a little) stay soothing and rich in emotion so the landscapes are beautiful to do

  • Great country! Beauties of landscapes. The region of Monts du Cantal is a super volcano whose immensity cannot be imagined. We must not forget to go to Salers which is a very nice village.

  • Cross country skied at both Le Lioran and Superbesse. Scenery and views are spectacular with volcanic hills everywhere. Weather was atmospheric too - creeping cloud, rainbows, just too warm for snow at the lowest altitudes of the resort's.
  • Nice area. We all enjoyed the beautiful views and the roads were diligently cleared of snow.
