    Brutal Ball Costings

    Here is the proposed costings for this little trip of ours. Take a look and see what you think - the sooner we have confirmed numbers the sooner I can get the rooms fixed and the prices secured!

    2 people = £635

    Week 2 Only

    Week 2 – outward passage only
    Both weeks – outward passage only

    1) Prices for boarding houses were the same as prices for camping therefore only prices for boarding houses have been costed.
    2) Rooms have not been reserved as final numbers were not known – prices may change if boarding houses are full and alternative rooms have to be sourced.
    3) Some rooms will include breakfast but this will be confirmed when final reservations are made.

    The final step is still open at the moment!
    Millau to Calais for the return ferry is 930km, so around 8 hours. There is an alternative of a ferry from Bilbao (north Spain) to Plymouth. Bilbao is still 6 hours from Millau, but, you get an overnight ferry on the way back - refreshed for the journey ahead.

    We are talking quite a bit of money here so when we have confirmed numbers we will reserve the rooms and everyone will need to pay individually when they get there. As for the ferries everyone needs to reserve their own passage - we'll just tell you which sailing to book on!

    So back to you guys - what do you think - who's still interested - any new takers - all that sort of stuff.
