Royère de Vassivière
A very extensive municipality, Royère-de-Vassivière adjoins the shores of the Lake, from the dam to Vauveix through Masgrangeas and the Presqu’île de Broussas. It is the scene of protected natural sites such as the Lande du Puy de la Croix, several peat bogs, the Rigole du Diable but also the presqu’île de Chassagnas which juts out and overlooks Lake Vassivière.
“L’Atelier”, which has now become unmissable, enlivens the heart of the village and offers, in addition to a bar-restaurant-boutique, a rich and varied cultural program throughout the year.
His 13th century church, completely renovated, resonates with the sound of classical concerts. Royère de Vassivière is also the cradle of motor sports with the Vassivière Club Tout Terrain which organizes large-scale events.
