This page is a guide only. The page contains recommendations from either TMs, Referees or Parents from previous seasons. Venues or official hotels may change for the current season so we recommend that you check the reglement’s before confirming any travel arrangements and if you are booking hotels before the reglement is out we advise you may want to consider booking with free cancellation as it is not guaranteed that competition details will stay the same.
Grenoble is the prefecture and largest city of the Isère department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of South-Eastern France. It lies at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère. A significant European scientific centre, the city advertises itself as the “Capital of the Alps”, due to its size and its proximity to the mountains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenoble
