Serres, in the Buëch Valley, in the south of French Alps


The Festival takes place in one of the most attractive parts of Europe, in a typical village of the southern fringes of the French Alps and the valley of the river Buëch, right in the middle of the land of thyme and lavender : "Mountains in Provence". Serres is a medieval fortified village built around a rock in the shape of a Phrygian cap, la Pignolette (funny name). The concerts take place at the open air Theatre of La Germanette, situated by a lake and surrounded by mountains or at the Salle Lucien Sallée, beautiful place in the village. Besides, some concerts also take place in villages near Serres. The location is truly wonderful. Click on Serres Hautes-Alpes and you will get some idea of our beautiful village. You will also find information on the Festival site, how to get there and where to stay, eat and drink, and browse for antiques and curios and, of course, our best links to jazz and music websites. For any information concerning the Festival, please contact 04 92 67 00 67 or 06 08 57 72 23 or Serres Tourist Office Place du Lac - 05700 Serres - tel : 04 92 67 00 67. Opening hours : Monday to Saturday : from 9 h 30 till 19 h 00 and Sundays from 10 h till 12 h 30.
