Services and Lake transports

In July and August, the taxi-boats take you to explore the varied natural sites. They roam the lake, departure at Auphelle and Broussas beaches as well as Masgrangeas port in order to converge towards the unavoidable Vassivère Island

For everyone’s happiness, this island is pedestrian, and we can access it on foot or by taxi-boat.

Let yourself be transported on an initiatory voyage where centuries intertwine to borne, in this magical place, the impossible marriage between Aldo Rossi and Xavier Fabre architects of the International Art and Landscape Centre and Vassivière family’s ancient chateau and farm,  marked by the Creuse stonemasons.

Other mobility possibility… Rent a mountain bike !


The connections to get to the Vassivière Island or the shore trail. You can therefore enjoy all the lake aspects, for a restaurant, an activity, a beach, a walk, etc…
