  • Estimated price for the weekend: 250€ per person in a double room and 335€ in a single room. Information about deposits will be given in due course. To simplify the organisation of the weekend, we ask all “non-Iberians” to associate themselves with one of the Iberian groups in order to register for the Weekend and make their payments.

  • The weekend includes: 2 nights accommodation with breakfast at the hotel, 2 buffet dinners with drinks, 2 classes with live music, 2 evening dances, and 2 walkthroughs.
  • Extra nights: The venue hotel is perfect for the purposes of the Iberian Weekend but  rather expensive, and so a different hotel, e.g. one in the city centre, may be better for days with a purely touristic agenda.
