  • At Moulin-Mer center (single/double rooms)

Please note that the Moulin-Mer center can only propose 43 rooms for expected 80 participants. In consequence, we kindly ask the participants to ask for a shared double room when possible. In case of too many requests for single rooms, the organizing committee gives itself the right to change single-room demands to double-room ones, with fees discount. Thank you!

We recommend you to book as soon as possible your accommodation because many other events will occur in the Brest area at this time of the year.
