Bienvenue à La Roussière
Demeure de charme au coeur de l'Augergne

La Roussière is a unique place. Set in summer pastures, amid lush green forests and snowy hills, it's a haven of peace crafted from an old mountain farmhouse. Set at 1019 metres, its rural setting takes you far off the beaten track.

It lies at the foot of the Plomb du Cantal, what better place to blend in with nature.

This old farmhouse dates back to 1834 and lay abandoned for forty years until the film crew of ''Harry, he's here to help'' chose it as their setting. We have since totally restored it and we hope that the atmosphere retains some of its unique quality and that you will appreciate its comfortable, contemporary design.

Welcome to our home !

Esprit de la maison

This traditional house has a contemporary feel to it and has been restored in the Carladès style using local stone with whitewashed walls, flagstone roofing, wood-facing on the walls (with extra insulation), stone flooring, solid oak floorboards...

As our guests, we want you to feel at home. Whether it's by the fireside in the lounge or in the vaulted small lounge, where the chapel once stood, now used as a TV room.

Mealtimes are an opportunity to gather around the big dining table in the kitchen/dining room just like people used to. Refreshments are available when you return from your walks or outings.
