SERRES is located in the valley of the river Buch, in the south of the department of Hautes-Alpes (05), between the pre-Alpes and the Haute-Provence, in the the land of thyme, rosemary and lavender fields and Petouri (local very special liquor....) ; welcome in the Provence of the southern mountains


The little village of Serres, situated between Gap and Sisteron, has about 1200 inh., The river Buch runs through the village which is overlooked by a rock of an unusual shape, La Pignolette (and unusual name),. Serres has preserved its  church, narrow streets and beautiful medieval houses (12-13th century) (don't miss the doors). Serres' history is very interesting. It is surrounded by mountains and countless views over the valley and the village. On Saturday mornings, there is a lively "Provence" local market.

The concerts are held in the open air theatre of La Germanette, just outside the village, on the road to Sisteron. The open air theatre is called : Thtre de Verdure, base de loisirs de la Germanette. As you can see, it is a very beautiful site, between the lake and the mountains. No problem to find it : lights everywhere by night and the way to the concerts is indicated everywhere from the village. Of course, there is unlimited free parking. The moonlight and the landscape during the concerts make them exceptional. To go there, from Serres, follow direction Sisteron, La Germanette is on the right hand side. In case of bad weather (exceptional), the concerts will take place in the "Salle des Ftes" of the village.
