    Lucien by Tribute to Serge Gainsbourg

Because he is for us a huge great artist that we miss so much, because his music necessarily has a special resonance inside of you, because listening to Gainsbourg outside in a forest is a fantastic moment of personal pleasure, we wanted to share it. We decided to have a multi-artist lodge as a tribute to Serge Gainsbourg. A lodge in which we have installed a turntable and speakers to enjoy the vinyl albums at your disposal. The walls are decorated with pictures of the icon captured by the biggest photo-journalists such as Luc Fournol.
A lodge decorated with a mix of grey and purple colors, blood red, deep red, in which already resonate the first notes of the ballad of Melody Nelson.

  • Design, brightness and openness

    • Architecte : Isabelle Poulain
    • Construction and Cladding : Rémi Becherel - Nid Perché
    • Stairs : Laurent Garreau - Le Terrier

    “Light, osmosis with the forest, transparency, space” inspired the design of our 18 lodges. Built on stilts, from wood species present in the surrounding forest – douglas, chestnut, oak – our lodges are real, warm and cosy suites. Their large windows and open terraces, equipped with a private spa, promote an harmonious dialogue between the interiors and the forest. And for the final touch, each lodge has been designed by a contemporary artist.

Walk or not

Walking is the best way to get around and explore our forest and the woods that surround it (the W.H.O recommends 10,000 steps a day to be healthier!). However, electric carts are provided for ease of travel, in case of necessity or a momentary lack of energy… here everything is allowed.

Biography

Serge Gainsbourg

Poet, singer-songwriter, director, actor and painter, Serge Gainsbourg is an accomplished artist of his period.

Coming from a russian family, Lucien Ginzburg, dit Serge Gainsbourg, was born in 1928 in Paris. 4 years later, he and his family obtained the French nationality. As young, he learnt piano even if his first loves led him rather to drawing and painting.

After the Second World War, during which he took refuge in Sarthe, he came back to Paris to study architecture in art school and plays in bars to pay for his studies.

He started in 1954 as a pianist in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and plays his first songs in cabarets. His singular and original style, fueled by double meaning and erotic allusions, is starting to make him known. At this moment, he chose his stage name, Serge Gainsbourg, in tribute to the british painter Gainsborough, pronounced Gainsbourg.

His first great success, “Le poinçonneur des Lilas”, dates to 1959. Serge Gainsbourg knows how to feel sounds and their atmosphere, not hesitating to go abroad to record his records in order to better feel the times. He first appeared at the Olympia in 1963. As his career goes by, he discovered France Gall and launched or relaunched Régine, Petula Clark, Dalida, Anna Karina, Françoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot or even Catherine Deneuve. Women inspire him, and it result from this his cult titles as “Je t’aime moi non plus” (1963).

In his sixties, his health become more and more poor and heart attacks come in succession. On the March 1991 2nd, the artist succumbs to a last heart attack. His tribute is unanimous.
