The school is accommodated at the French National Sailing School (Ecole Nationale de Voile), located on the site of Beg Rohu, in the village Saint Pierre Quiberon, on the peninsula of Quiberon in southern Brittany. The nearest cities are Quiberon, Auray and Vannes, all located in the district of Morbihan.
From Paris, TGV express trains take 3h to reach Auray. Then get on the local train to Quiberon, which makes a stop at Saint Pierre Quiberon close to Beg Rohu. See our detailed instructions for the arrival and departure.
The cost of the school is 1000 euros per participant. It covers all regular expenses including accommodation and meals. An extra 150 euros will be required from participants wishing to attend sailing activities.
