At the end of spring 2024 we will send you an email with a reminder to pay an invoice for meals. After payment of both invoices, we will send you an application for the afternoon workshops, which you can choose according to your preferences. The sooner you will pay the invoices, the more choice of workshops you will have.

Vegetarian, vegan and most importantly delicious! Loutí is a place in the heart of nature, you won't find a shop here. It is possible to use the common refrigerator for modest personal supplies.
Storage of larger stocks of own food and the possibility of private cooking cannot be ensured. Self-catering is also more time-consuming and it is not possible to allocate more time for it in the program.

The price for a full board was in 2023: 22 Euro/day. We will send you the exact amount during the spring of 2024.

The presence of children or dogs at the Summer School is not possible due to capacity and organizational reasons.
