  • It's a lovely place to walk. The air is clean and smells of ferns and heather. There are beaches around the lake, but we were hiking, so went to a different part of the lake. We'll be back soon.  more »
  • From all the beaches at Lac de Vassivière, I think Plage de Brousas this is the most beautiful. Lots of parking space, good restaurant and nice sandy beach to linger all day. Spent a full day here...  more »

  • Beautiful in the summer.
