    If one was to organise a course in Paxos how could the Loggos schoolhouse be booked as a possible venue for a week.

  2. Hello Anne, you would need to get in touch with the local council and submit an official application. Please do email me direct at samidasilva@hotmail.co.uk and I will do my best to get you the contact details.
