The Shiphandling Training Centre

Accommodation during the course

During the four or five days of the course (course lengths vary), the students stay in a wing of the Hostellerie de Chambaran, a peaceful 3-star hotel located close to Saint-Etienne-de-Saint-Geoirs airport (near Grenoble). It is in the commune of Viriville, which is 60 km from Lyons and exactly the same distance (50 km) from Grenoble and Valence.
