Accommodation is available in the nearby town of Tripolis and buses will be available to transport the participants each day to and from the workshop venue in the village.

The LOC has approached all the hotels in the list below. The hotels have offered the rates below for the week 11 to 17 June and participants will be able to book rooms from April 1 until April 30. After these dates rooms could be still booked as available, at the usual rates. Consult the hotel webpages for more details on what is offered by each hotel.

Participants should approach the hotels directly either by Phone, Email or Fax and I'm assured that hotel staff speak sufficient English to make the bookings. Please make sure that in your message or conversation refer to:
"Block bookings for the Astrophysics Workshop in Kerastari, organised by Tasso Tzioumis".

The room rates are quoted without breakfast, as a light breakfast will be available at the workshop before starting. If you do require a heavier breakfast, indicative prices are shown. The rates given should be pretty accurate but may vary by small amounts.

Self-contained appartment accommodation is also available in nearby villages and resorts but not in Tripoli itself. Thus a car will be needed for local transport. Some details are available via web searches or you can contact us if you need help.

Alternatively, you may contact the local Travel Agency, Destino Tours, who have agreed to help our workshop participants.

NB: Bookings are the responsibility of the participants and should be handled directly with the hotels.
If you do run into trouble please send us an email and we will try to help.

Please let us know what hotel you have been booked into so we can organise the bus transport.
