    Flying Monkey has found us a Gite for the tour:
    http://www.pnr-lorraine.com/education/pdfs/depliant_genicourt.pdf

    It sleeps 28 in rooms of various sizes, most of them dormatory size.
    I am obtaining a translation of their pdf file from our contact who lives in France.

    Cost will be £65 per head for accommodation & 1 green poloshirt. (Total cost, not per night). People wishing another shirt should add a further £15.
    Those wishing to attend should PM me & I will send them details of how to pay. The payments this time are being handled by Phil.

  8. I assume this is not baby-friendly (i.e. there's no double rooms available)? Would love to be wrong...
     
  9. The PDF Brochure states that there are 28 beds in 7 rooms. What the actual set up is I don't know but will find out.
