Lodging and accommodation
In order to preserve the sacred character of the Centre d'Etudes de Chanteloube, it is important to follow certain regulations. People are kindly asked to refrain from smoking, consuming alcohol or other intoxicants and eating meat and fish. Visitors are requested not to bring their pets and to observe a quiet and respectful attitude at all times.The possibilities of accommodation at Chanteloube are very limited and are usually reserved for those working in the organization. It is therefore necessary to find lodging in the area. This is not difficult as there are many tourist facilities in the region. Please apply for information
