Lac de Vassiviere reviews
It's a lovely place to walk. The air is clean and smells of ferns and heather. There are beaches around the lake, but we were hiking, so went to a different part of the lake. We'll be back soon. more »
From all the beaches at Lac de Vassivière, I think Plage de Brousas this is the most beautiful. Lots of parking space, good restaurant and nice sandy beach to linger all day. Spent a full day here... more »
Beaches, restaurants and boats. Great location for swimming, sailing, eating or just relaxing. Beautiful lake. Adventure play area for the kids and great walks for everybody.
Beautiful in the summer.
