DAY 11 17/08:

depature date



First due to the late reservations and also the few options possible in certain areas only 12 people can come for an average price per night 59euro/person/night (for the accomodation . However for the localizations of the hotels in term of distance and situations regardind the BIG are almost optimals and some places are outstanding really.
Everyhting is booked but everything can be changed or cancelled freely (we have until end june) the breakfast is included except for 3 or 4 days but i can try to manage this).
Rooms are for 2 / 3 / 4 /6 people according to the localization. Also sometimes the prices of the rooms are very diiferent but i propose that the 12 participants pay the same amount except if some are really keen to always take the best options or have particular willingness.
Days 3, 4, 6 and especially 7 are really heavy . If you think there could be a slight increase in the price i could choose some better hotels. Also the 2 first days are appartments /houses i would search for restauurants but maybe the first day 0 night you could do your own meal because the place close to the lake is just amazing.
The roads are roads you cannot ride fast with the cars.
Be careful some BIGs are on gravel roads as well.
