Covid News and Booking Policy for 2022 & Onwards
Update 11th January 2021
For everyone who is double vaccinated the quarantine in both the UK and France is over.
Easy-Jet are now flying to France and Brittany Ferries are crossing the channel to St Malo, Caen, Roscoff and Le Havre. Transmarche Ferries and P&O are also operating.
There is no lockdown here in France and just about everything is virtually back to normal with all shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions open. The only noticible difference from pre-Covid days is that face masks are still obligatory inside shops etc and that the Covid app from your phone has to be presented in restaurants and bars. In the case of the French this is their 'Pass Sanitaite' but for travellers vaccinated in England and Wales the NHS QR code proving their vaccine status is accepted instead
You can get all the latest official information from the French governments official coronavirus website....... https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus/carte-et-donnees and we would encourage you to have a look at it yourself
NB... for what it's worth we have never come across or even heard of anyone who has contracted the virus around here. Brittany is one of the least affected areas of western Europe
Our Gite Cleaning Regime
As our previous and returning customers will confirm our cleaning has always been exemplary. However, since the start of June 2020 we have implemented an even more vigorous protocol including using a special antibacterial sanitising cleaning solution to wipe down all touchable surfaces throughout the houses, especially in the kitchens and bathrooms
Booking Policy for 2022 and onwards
Obviously 2020 and 2021 were particularly challenging years for everyone but now that the UK and Europe have rolled out their vaccination programs things have improved rapidly
Any bookings made for 2022 and onwards cannot be refunded or moved to another date due to COVID restrictions or any other reasons. Our apologies but as a small business we cannot continue to indefinitely 'insure' bookings and recommed that you take the appropriate travel protection if you would like those extra guarantees. Most banks and insurance companies offer travel insurance online and many offer Covid guarantees now as well
