Luggage

 

  • Include in your luggage: bathing suit, short, trouser, but also 2 pull-over or 1 thick (at night it cools pretty), a jacket in case of rain, sturdy baskets for walking on unlevelled paths (climbing shoes are not necessary).
    Easy outfit for yoga exercises, painting. sun cream, sun glasses, hat.

  • The cottages will contain shampoo, shower gel, body lotion, towels, sheets and blankets. So no need to take any of these with you.

  • Format of luggage: compact luggage please (for easy transport by car) :-).

Lodging

  • There are two cottages close to each other and close to the central hub (dining, talks, ...) in a beautiful natural environment:

  • 1 big cottage with stunning view for the UK team.

  • 1 smaller, but very cosy cottage  with a terrace and a garden for the Belgian team.
    Unfortunately  there will be no pool at the cottages... We had to change to another rental lodge due to the increase of participants.

  • But, dear ladies, …don’t worry! We have plenty of resourceful activities and possibilities to relax s.a., massages, beautiful nature and environment to walk.

Food
