Lake services and transportation

Insolite, theshuttle boats take you on board to discover a site with plural natures, from the intimate ports nestled in the middle of nature to the dynamic beaches of Broussas or Auphelle, through the unavoidable stopover on the Ile de Vassivière, mixing creation, nature, animation and tradition.

For the happiness of all, this Island is pedestrian and can be reached on foot but also by shuttle boats. Let yourself be transported on an initiatory journey where centuries intertwine to bring to life, in this magical place, the unlikely marriage between the architectures of Aldo Rossi and Xavier Fabre, architects of the International Center for Art and Landscape, and those of the former castle and agricultural estate of the Vassivière family, footprints of the masons of the Creuse.

Another mobility solution…rent a mountain bike!
