Venue: Chateau Szt. András, Bölcske. It is 110 kms south of Budapest, 1 hr 20 mins on the M6, 6 kms from the Danube on a puszta i.e. 6 kms from the village, Bölcske. We will have the exclusive use of the 19th century impressively restored chateau built on its 7 hectare grounds and the two ecologically built guest-houses beside it. The setting is just beautiful, spacious grounds with two ponds, large lawns and parks, an open-air swimming pool, sauna, a covered area for outside activities, fruit trees, small scale organic farming, its own water well.
There is a small chapel on the grounds. The place is owned, renovated and run by a lady with great taste and ecological awareness and a vision to make it a centre for learning, arts and new approaches in personal and societal transformation. It surely will provide a most suitable environment to our gathering.
There is additional accommodation available in the village of Bölcske for single occupancy and overflow, 6 kms away in the Turul Inn. Transport will be provided to and from the chateau daily.
There are no single rooms available in the chateau or adjoining guest houses. Ample camping facilities are available on the chateau venue.
Staying before/after CCI: We are very happy to host you. Please bear in mind that we are a tiny community.
