Presentation

 

A family home in the heart of "La Bresse" is the ideal setting for a tango weekend. The weekend will take place in St ANDRE D'HUIRIAT on the 28th, 29th, 30th and 31th of July. The price of the weekend is 173€ for 4 days. This includes the tango weekend itself, 3 breakfasts, 3 dinners, and snacks/drinks. Everyone is welcome to bring something yummy to share, too!

As most participants will be attending the marathon by invitation, we will only be able to offer a limited number of places for open registration. Early registration will therefore not guarantee you a place. We apologise in advance for any disappointment this may cause.

When completing the registration process you will be able to book your accommodation. If you choose to stay at the marathon venue itself or in the hostel La Balmondiere, you will be able to book your room through the marathon´s website. If you prefer a hotel in Pont-de-Veyle or elsewhere, you will need to organise your own accommodation.

There are no refunds. If you have to cancel, contact me before June 26th and I will choose the waiting list that can take over your payment. After June 26th this will not be possible anymore.
