We are pleased to announce the details of the next Working Group meeting at the Acta Arthotel, Andorra la Vella, 6-9 July 2016.
The hotel, which is family-run, has given us a package deal, with full board and conference facilities covering everything except travel to Andorra. There is a choice of standard room or suite for the three nights, which can be occupied as singles or doubles (or twins – they just separate the beds). Both types of room are extremely comfortable and all rooms have free wifi. The food is good and includes vegetarian and special dietary options.
CONFERENCE RATES (ALL INCLUSIVE)
Here are the package prices, per person. Please note that these prices are for the full package (NOT per night), and include full board, conference rooms and facilities, and a gala dinner.
STANDARD DOUBLE ROOM €200.37
SINGLE STANDARD ROOM €236.37
SUITE, DOUBLE OCCUPANCY €268.37

There is no airport in Andorra. The best way to travel there is to get a plane or train to Barcelona or Toulouse (whichever suits you better) and then take a coach up to Andorra la Vella, which takes about 3 hours. The hotel is five minutes’ walk from the bus station. It is also possible to drive, e.g. from Perpignan, but you will have to pay to park at the hotel.

- Whether you would like to stay additional days before or after the meeting and, if so, which days.
This expression of interest will not constitute a firm booking. It is just so that the hotel and I can plan. I will call for FIRM RESERVATIONS in January 2016.
PLEASE DO NOT BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE HOTEL; I will assemble the list of names and room requirements.
Likewise, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANY MONEY. Your contract will be directly with the hotel, and you will register on arrival and pay your bill on departure (the cost of the package plus additional purchases such as drinks from the bar).
We look forward to seeing you there!
