About the Mas de Mestre
The Mas de Mestre is no hotel, but a Gîte, a guest house typical for rural France. There is no daily cleaning of the rooms or changing of towels. Furthermore, the normal double rooms are equipped variably: Some have a private bathroom, whilst others share a bath with one other room but have an additional sitting-room-area.

Travel to the Mas de Mestre
Is it the French countryside, so most participants come by car or will rent one on site. When traveling by plane or train, we recommend to take the bus from Nimes train station to Villevieille. This takes a little under 1 hour and from there it is just a 10 minute walk to the Mas.

There will be 16 hours of classes, 4,5 hours per full day (Wednesday – Friday) and one shorter unit on the day of departure.
We have arranged for full board: a tasty breakfast, a simple meal at noon and a 3-course dinner in the evening. Our cook will surprise us with a regional, tasty cuisine. 
In the evenings, we will dance on site and – if the group wishes – visit a milonga in Turin on one of the evenings.

Bookings & price (per person): 920€
The price includes 4 overnights, 4 breakfasts, 8 meals, 16 hours of teaching as well as practicas/milongas on site. The number of participants is limited to 22.

About the Castello
Despite the impressive set-up, the Castello is no hotel, but a bed & breakfast. There are no phones, mini-bars or tvs in the rooms and you won’t be waited upon 24/7. But all of this adds to the very authentic feel of the location. There is a good reason, that so many weddings take place in these surroundings!
You will be staying in apartments for 2-4 people with separate double rooms. If the groups are full, there is no option for single rooms, but the apartments are spacious enough to guarantee for some comfort, even when sharing with another single participant. 

Travel to the Castello
Is it the Italian countryside, so we recommend coming by car. If you want to forgo cars, then it is best to take the regional train from Torino to Chivasso. That will take less than 1/2 hour. From there, you will have to take a bus which is only 11 kilometres to the foot of the castle hill. If things get complicated, we might also help you find a ride with someone else or collect you in Chivasso.
