Lac de Vassiviere is a huge man made lake with a large Island in the centre. The island chateau provides a working environment for artists and the 'gallery' currently houses a sound installation which is unusual and thought provoking. A walk around the island will take you to over 60 sculptures and installations by a variety of international artists -... More

The many... More

Beach clean and safe. Free boat to island. Saw free aerobatic show but this meant the water was out of bounds for about 90 minutes.

Great lake to walk around, as there are free taxi boats to return you to the start. Also there are several circular walks, we did two. Worth doing a circuit of the island with sculpture park

Beautiful landscape surrounding a very attractive lake. Many waymarked paths and offroad cycle tracks as well as a 15-mile (24km) easy road circuit. Lake has a picturesque island with sculpture trail and an internationally recognised modern art gallery

Stopped for lunch on the off chance. Very little English spoken by staff and my French being non-existent, we manage to sample a real French lunch at a very reasonable price. If I recall the town was called Royal Lac de Vassiviere. Going back there again July 2014.

I remember before I came to Lac de Vassiviere after a 40-minute-ride from Limoges, I had had car sickness so I felt extremely weary, yet as I arrived to this lake and wandered around, my mind became relaxed, my lungs were filtered as fresh air penetrated into them and took away my nausea. Everything was perfect and I loved this... More
