The Vacances Bleues secret
"A select destination for fans of fresh air. Our credo is simple: choose well-being for the body and mind. Disconnect and enjoy!"
A hotel, an artist
Artist: Jean-Marc Haroutiounian
Landscapes, animals or abstract compositions, it is at Horizons du Lac that you will discover the very original work of Jean-Marc Haroutiounian, a painter turned...musician!
For this extraordinary artist, art is above all a matter of relationships between people. Whether he paints or plays the bass guitar, the most important thing for him is to share and communicate with others; and if he has chosen today to give up painting to devote himself to music and the stage (notably alongside Florent Pagny, Michel Sardou or Céline Dion) it is with the same energy and the same ideal...
All of his works, which entered the collection of the Fondation Vacances Bleues in the 1980s and 1990s, are now assembled in Chorges.dans les années 1980/ 90 sont désormais rassemblées à Chorges.
