The hotel at the Serre Ponçon lake is an "Art Included" establishment
Here at Serre du Villard you will discover the paintings of landscapes, animals or abstract compositions belonging to the extremely original work of the artist Jean-Marc Haroutiounian, painter but also a musician !
For this unusual artist, art is above all about the relationship between beings. Whether he is painting or playing his bass guitar, the most important thing for him is to share and to communicate with others; and if he has chosen today to give up painting to devote himself to music and theatre (notably beside Florent Pagny, Michel Sardou or Celine Dion) it is still with the same boundless energy and idealism…all of his work has been a part of the Vacances Bleues collection since the years 1980/90 and it has now been brought together at Serre du Villard.
