Dear Seiki friends,

Some time has past now and we hope you are enjoying the summer.  We would like to send you more details about the program of the seiki gathering.

In Kishi's spirit, we've found a quite and peaceful place surrounded by nature,  near Nimes and Montpellier, with all necessary comfort for all of us to enjoy nice celebration,  exchange of seiki together, eating, drinking, sleeping in 1 place, enjoying being together.

About the Environment

The small group of houses ("hammeau") of Le Comté is located in the wild mountains of Cévennes , 50 km north of Montpellier, and 50 km West of Nimes.
The site can be accessed by bus directly from Nimes or by car form Montpellier or Nimes. 
More on section how to get there
Silk workers used to work and live there once.

How to get there

Le Comté - Le Cros  is located between Montpellier and Nimes. Both cities have an airport and TGV station (Daily direct TGV from Paris Gard de Lyon). Many flights come direct from Germany, UK, Belgium, Holland. If you don't have / rent a car, the best is to come over to Nimes and take a  direct bus to Saint-Hippolyte du Fort, which is the village in the valley. We will arrange transport to get you to the site.
Most beautiful red sunsets are seen in autumn!

About Le Comté

The houses on the site were used long time ago as a living and production site for silk workers.  A french artist bought the site and gave this little "hameau" new life by putting his soul, time and efforts in building up this special place.
