A new Pilgrim's Hostel in Compiègne,France (Un nouveau gîte)

The Hostel is managed by the Confraternity of the Friends of Saint James in Compiègne. It is located less than 1km from the town centre.
As far as we know, it is the only hostel in France, North of Paris. We hope that it will be the first of many and so help to revive the Northern European network of hostels for pilgrims on their way to Compostella.

* Opening hours : from 16h30 to 09h00 the following day.
* Pilgrims may stay for one night only.
* The price is 10 euros per pilgrim per night.
* Only pilgrims with a valid credencial will be admitted to the Hostel.
* There are 8 beds available.
* The hostel is open from mid-April until the end of September.

Pilgrim's arriving at the hostel will find the door locked. So, the first thing to do is to go to the Tourist Office which is situated Place de l'Hôtel de Ville ("Town Hall Square"). There, upon presentation of their credencial and payment for the night, they will be given the hostel key and directions.

If you can read French, there is more info at

Please spread the news, especially to pilgrims and places in North-Eastern France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Thanks,

Bonjour,

Un nouveau gîte d'étape pour pèlerins en chemin vers Compostelle est ouvert à Compiègne.

* Heures d'ouverture : 16h30 à 09h00 le lendemain.
* Le séjour est limité à une nuit.
* Prix de la nuitée : 10 euros par pèlerin.
* L'accueil au Gîte est reservé aux pèlerins munis d'un crédencial.
* Le gîte est ouvert à partir du mi-avril jusqu'à fin septembre.

Le Gîte se trouve à moins d'un kilomètre du Centre Ville.

Le pèlerin qui souhaite utiliser le gîte doit passer préalablement à l'Office de Tourisme, pour présenter son crédencial, regler le prix du séjour et récupérer la clé.

L'Office de Tourisme se situe sur la Place de l'Hôtel de Ville.

Pourriez-vous faire connaître cette info autour de vous, surtout si vous avez des contacts dans la partie Nord-est de la France, la Belgique ou au Pays-Bas.

Merci d'avance,


Seamus
Confrère à Compiègne

P.S. Si vous avez des talents de traducteur ...
ce serait bien de traduire mon message en Flamand et en Allemand et de poster ici.
Une seule fois pour chaque traduction....
Je ne sais pas comment on pourra gérer ça ...

Compiègne est dans le département de l'Oise en Picardie.
Pour ceu qui arrivent du Nord, c'est entre Noyon et Senlis, et pour ceux qui arrivent de l'Est, (Reims, Laon, Soissons) c'est à Compiègne qu'il faudra changer de cap et s'orienter plein Sud.

Et ...
J'ai oublié d'indiquer que le Gîte de Compiègne à son propre (petit) site web.
L'adresse est http://www.casajac.org

Ooooops !

I forgot to mention ....

Compiègne is in the département de l'Oise in the Picardie region, 85 km north of Paris.

Pilgrims arriving from the North, will find Compiègne between Noyon and Senlis. Those arriving from the East (Reims, Laon, Soissons) will find Compiègne handy enough, that's where you have to turn left and head South to Senlis and Paris.

Will the Gite be usable by pilgrims on the way to Rome? Althought the Via Francigena does not pass through Compiegne is on the route people travelling frim Dieppe and Normandy towards Reims would take.
