The beds are in rooms of ten, in tatami style bunkbeds. People need to bring
their own sleeping bags(or sheets given the weather that time of year).

Prices will be 23 euros per person(20 euros for members of Ale/Learning
Unlimited/participants in workshops etc) per day, with children 3 and under not
paying if they eat from their parents’ plates. (21 euros if camping, 18 for members of Ale etc)
Price includes 4 meals a day(breakfast, lunch, evening snack and dinner). We’ll
enter the place at five pm August 31 and leave at the same time on 4 September,
so people who stay the five days/four nights will pay for four days.

Payment is by bank transfer, with places being allotted on a first come, first
served basis. Deposit should be at least half of total amount of stay, with
final payment of total amount due before 1 August. Contact daraghmci@hotmail.com for bank details.
People who want vegetarian menus need to specify this when making their
reservations. There will be activities and workshops for all the family, and open debates on regulation and forms of home education..

We’re open to suggestions and ideas relating to the event, and ask for donations
to help with the organization of the event. We hope it will provide a forum to
increase awareness of the situations in various European countries regarding HE,
and bring home educators in Spain and Europe closer together.
