An “Art Included” club at Lac de Serre-Ponçon

Landscapes, animals or abstract compositions, it is at Serre-du-Villard that you will discover the very original work of Jean-Marc Haroutiounian, a painter who become – a musician!

For this most unusual painter, art is first and foremost a matter of relationships between beings. Whether painting or playing base guitar, the main thing for him is to share and communicate with others; and if he chose today to give up painting so as to devote himself to music and acting (which he has done alongside Florent Pagny, Michel Sardou and Céline Dion) it is with the same energy and the same ideal. All his works, which entered the Vacances Bleues collection in the 80's and 90's, are now collected in Les Horizons du Lac (Serre-du-Villard).

Families will particularly appreciate the 9 "Blue Flag" labeled beaches, spread around the lake and a pure water which reaches 23°.

A multitude of activities are available to you: rowing, stand up paddle, windsurfing, kite-surfing, canoeing, sea kayaking, catamaran, pedal boat, schooner, jet ski, pirogue, boat with or without a licence, promenade boat and aperitif boat, school boat, towed buoys, water skiing, wakeboarding, flying over the lake in a seaplane...
Without forgetting white water sports, practicable for all ages and levels, both original and sporty. From April with the melting snow that fills the lake, the conditions are ideal, sporty and fun for kayaking, rafting or hydrospeed.

Activities to be tested urgently, for lovers of refreshing sensations!


The latest bike-park in the Southern Alps (inaugurated in summer 2018), Réallon offers 10 mountain bike DH and enduro trails for all levels, with a balcony overlooking the Serre-Ponçon lake and facing the Ecrins National Park.
1 green slope under the 1st chairlift, 1 red slope under the 2nd chairlift, 1 black slope from the top of the resort to the bottom of the slopes, 1 new enduro itinerary.

Combine the discovery of a region and the pleasure of cycling!

Between the high mountains of the Ecrins National Park and the shores of the Serre-Ponçon lake, "Les Horizons du Lac" are an incredible playground for all types of cycling and offer a multitude of routes for all levels.

If the 94 km and 1640 m of the Serre-Ponçon lake tour remains the must for road cyclists, mountain bikers will be able to face the Balcons du Champsaur or the Ubaye valley and its extraordinary landscapes. Make way for emotions!

Hikers discover the Hautes-Alpes differently!

Here, all you have to do is make your choice! The shores of the lake offer a few itineraries accessible to all, mainly around the lake, the little Liou, the path linking the bays of Chanteloube and St-Michel ... Higher up, the lake of S-Apollinaire, Réallon, Les Orres ... And the Écrins National Park, from its shores to the summits, at almost 3000 m of altitude with the high altitude lakes (Lac Brun, de l'Hivernet, du Crachet), the waterfalls (cascade de la Pisse, de Réallon, des Razis...), the mountain pastures with the lake of Serre-Ponçon as a backdrop. So many magnificent sites nearby that offer easy, moderate or sporty routes.
