About the Site
The village of Les Diablerets is situated about 70 miles (120km) east of Geneva, in the Alps of the Canton of Vaud at the eastern end of Lake Geneva.
The altitude of 1150m is ideal for summer months when usually the nights are cool and you can enjoy pleasantly warm days. However, in the mountains the weather conditions may temporarily deteriorate (rain, cooler) so be sure to bring some warm clothing.
The village is situated in the end of a valley, at the foot of the 3200m mountain/glacier also called Les Diablerets. Les Diablerets is a small village made out of chalet style buildings and is very nice without being a fancy place. It has a number of shops, restaurants, bars and there are ample opportunities for sport and hiking.

On-Site Housing / Facilities
Attendees stay at either the Eurotel or at Hotel Les Sources. Some of the single rooms are adjoined in an apartment style. These rooms have a single entrance from the corridor which leads to one sleeping room and a bathroom. Off that room is another door, with another sleeping room and bathroom. For those registered to stay in double (shared) rooms, please be aware that the beds are placed close together and cannot be separated. In case you feel uncomfortable with this, the hotel has brand new, comfortable sofa beds in each double room which can be made up as a separate bed.
There are 60 single rooms available for GRC attendees at the Les Diablerets Conference Center. Accepted applicants have an opportunity to register for a single room on a first come, first served basis. Once all available single rooms have been reserved, you will be required to register for a double (shared) room.
There is a laundry and ironing service available at the Eurotel. For security reasons, the hotel does not provide irons to guests. Les Diablerets does not have a laundromat; the closest facilities are in Aigle.
