A wide variety of lodging options are available near the Institut. However, we recommend that you reserve your lodging early to get the reservations you want. A van will provide shuttle service from Malaucene to the shortcourse venue in Beaumont (a 5-10 min drive) multiple times each day. A list of hotels and other lodging in Malaucene is provided below.
Rental units like apartments are typically reserved by northern Europeans on holiday, and while our early June dates precede the high season, vacationers usually reserve by spring, so it’s best to book these early. Hotel rooms (of which Malaucene has many) remain available later into the year.
