There is strength in unity: a leisure lake created to unite and energize

The Lac de Rouffiac is quite a story. Born of a joint desire to have a leisure and sports center, 4 municipalities of the Périgord Vert are grouped together and develop a beautiful natural area of 100 hectares. We are in 1984, Angoisse, Payzac, Lanouaille and Savignac-Lédrier are not on the main tourist routes and wish to acquire an asset that enhances the local natural heritage. A body of water of more than 40 hectares was created (fed by local streams), with a beach, leisure facilities and from 1988, an accommodation center for groups (schools , summer camps, etc.). Entertainment is organized regularly and the lake, also open to the public, is popular with locals and holidaymakers alike!

In 1998, the union which manages the lake hands over to the Department, for various organizational and financial reasons (a heavy burden for these small rural communities…). The Semitour becomes manager and all together, the actors of this green tourism develop the strong points of the lake and its green space. We are putting a lot of emphasis on welcoming group, with a flexible capacity of 300 to 500 beds and in 2021/2022, the campsite for groups and the accommodation center will be completely renovated, to open up prospects for companies, seminars, conferences, a great added value for the territory!
