autumn escapes

Vassivière, a new face!

The shores of the lake open up, drawing in coves and capes, new little islands emerge, the flamboyant colors sublimate the “little Canada” of New Aquitaine.

Take advantage of the mild temperatures to enjoy a sensory and natural experience that’s both soothing and invigorating.

Getting drunk

of nature

Oxygen, scents of nature and beautiful panoramas.

On foot, on horseback, onATV, on canoë or on yourfishing boat traverse this immensity with the lake as your backdrop.
Observe the fauna, the flora, inhale the sweet, woody smells, capture the moment and the palette of colors in your lens (without forgetting #vassiviere #lacdevassiviere), savor mushrooms and chestnuts by the fireside.

Nature is slowly calming down before winter…. A moment of contemplation!
