Lunch will be served at the airfield daily but you must reserve your lunch via our web site application form. Breakfast will not be provided by the organizer, so be sure to check on breakfast/dinner options prior to booking accommodations. Pending a sufficient number of reservations, the organizer will serve dinner at the airfield at a full-meal price of €9.

Prices for meals in local restaurants can vary quite a lot, however full lunch at a restaurant is about 25€, dinner a little bit more 30€. It’s difficult to find restaurants that serve breakfast in the valley, therefore while making reservations for sleeping, keep in mind to double check that they serve breakfast.
