vacances à la ferme à Vassivière en limousin

To discover the thousand wonders of the Millevaches nature park in Limousin, our charming and affectionate donkeys are excellent companions for both children and adults ! 

Who are we ?

Christophe: I am originally from Paris. After studying applied arts, I move away from the capital to give a second life to the farm of André, my great-grandfather. This is how the Ferme des Ânes de Vassivière was born in the spring of 2000.

Olivier: I am originally from Provence and, initially, a graphic designer and illustrator. I arrived in Limousin in 2003, I worked for a time for the art center on the island of Vassivière, then I chose to devote myself entirely to Donkeys!


There is also Ilton, who is a bit of the estate's mascot and an adorable companion.

It is often he who welcomes you even before you have crossed the threshold of the reception!

When he arrived at the farm, we wondered whether or not he was allowed to roam free on the "public" side... But to see the happy faces of our visitors and their pleasure when they can cuddle this big pooch , the question was quickly resolved and Ilton is somehow at home everywhere!

There is also a little cat (not shy either and who might just visit you when you least expect it), the donkeys of course (who are adorable neighbours), the many birds (ncluding the owls at night), the hedgehogs that live under the floor of the yurts...

Here, it's not a hotel, it's not a campsite.

It is not a sanitized, air-conditioned, normalized... and smooth place.

It is a simple, unpretentious place, but naturally beautiful and soothing.

It is a farm where all the inhabitants, including the animals, contribute to the authenticity.

You arrive there with our joys or our worries, our energy, our dreams or our stress: and you put everything down to meditate for a while.


In short, it's the "Ânes de Vassivière's spirit" and the promise of experiencing a unique and precious parenthesis here!
