119 air-conditioned, recently renovated, studios, a stone’s throw from the beach, have been blocked at the holiday resort Le Village de Corail where the Symposium will take place. It is at walking distance from several services of Saint-Gilles downtown, including: neighborhood stores (bakeries, groceries), pharmacy, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and casino. Also, activities for children over the age of 4 can be proposed at some time slots during the day by the local animators. Full board costs (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and tourist taxes included) are of the order of 90 [65] € per person per day in single [double] occupation. Please note that these pre-booked studios are released by November, 20th 2016. After that date, there will be no guarantee anymore as to the room availability and one will have to book a studio on his own by contacting Le Village de Corail and paying the deposit by bank transfer only.

We strongly recommend booking a studio there owing to its good quality and excellent price-quality ratio (among the best one can find in the surroundings), not to mention the convenience it is to be settled at the meeting’s location.
