Organization & missions

The tourist office Le Lac de Vassivière was created in 1994 by the Syndicat le Lac de Vassivière. After multiple changes of legal form, it took the status of EPIC (Industrial and Commercial Public Establishment) in 2015. Today it depends on the network “Offices de Tourisme de France”, classified as category 2.

It integrates a team of 10 permanent employees, chaired since 2021 by Dominique BAUDEMONT and directed by Frédérique OUDOT.

The Syndicate entrusts it with the responsibility of carrying out the following objectives and missions:

>>> Public service missions

Stay advice: reception, tourist information and orientation of the public
Communication and promotion of the destination, management of media relations
Animation of the network of service providers & partnerships : accompaniment/classification and labeling, qualification of the offer
Coordination: leisure activities, events, large-scale events

  • 2 campsites: The 2 islands in Auphelle and the Presqu’île in Broussas and provision of services (grocery stores, animations…)
  • 6 marinas that is to say nearly 350 boat moorings
  • 1 service station

His territory of competence is that of the Syndicat du  lac namely the 6 communes of the territory of the lake : Beaumont du Lac, Nedde and Peyrat le Château in Haute Vienne and Faux la Montagne,  Gentioux-Pigerolles and Royère de Vassivière in Creuse.
