Lake Vassivière

Lake Vassivière sits in a verdant landscape of wooded hillsides. Covering 1 000ha, this man-made water feature, which came into being with dam construction across the River Maulde at Vassivière, hosts sailing events, and one of its islands is home to the Centre International d'Art et du Paysage (regular exhibitions of works by French and foreign artists) and a sculpture garden.
