Hi, I'd just like to know if the contact info on your website is still valid? I have left two e-mails and an sms over the past three weeks without any responses. I'm trying to set up a my holiday with some Tec courses included, so I want to be sure there will be a course available during my time there. 04/08 - 20/08. I have already made my hotel bookings near to Savedra. I am currently in China, so phoning or skyping aren't easily available. info at savedra. Is this still correct? Any help would be appreciated!
