Important Notice

The seminar it’s in August and the period is very busy so we pre booked all the rooms in a couple of B&B to be sure you can have your spot for the seminar for a good price.

The Pre-Booked rooms are guaranteed until May 31st. From June 1st unbooked rooms will re-open public booking and they will be certainly more expensive. Don’t wait and book ASAP.

These are the nicest and closest we found around and we also asked for a special price. To get those rooms you will need a special booking code that we will provide when you finish the registration for the seminar.
