2021 Coronavirus Information

2020 was a challenging year for holiday rentals to say the least.

  • First Wave of COVID: When the lockdown/confinement was in place in France and the UK we moved many reservations from Spring/Summer 2020 to Spring/Summer 2021 - all at no cost to the holiday maker.
  • Second Wave of COVID: The UK reinstated its 14 day quarantine period for travellers returning to the UK - this was reduced this to 5 days if you pay for a private Covid Test upon your return.
  • The FCO is still advising against all but essential travel to France. This means that we are currently unable to accept new bookings from the UK until this situation changes for the better.
  • France has come out of a second lockdown, but has introduced a curfew (18h00 - 06h00) and has limited gatherings to only 6 adults, plus children over the holidays.
  • People from some other parts of Europe are permitted to travel - depending upon their country of residence, but it is advised to keep an eye on the situation as it is changing on a regular basis.

  • 2021 - Travel from the UK to France: The UK is currently not on the 'exempt list' of countries that are permitted to enter the Schengen Area, so only emergency travel and workers are allowed to enter (With a valid Covid PCR Test).

  • If you currently have a reservation with us for Spring/Summer 2021, then we will be in touch at the beginning of 2021 with regards to making your deposit payment (if you are a returning guest). Final payments will be made 8 weeks prior to the holiday as usual - but we are monitoring the situation if travel restrictions are being imposed again.
  • If you have found a holiday property on this site and wish to make a reservation, we are happy to take reservations from the UK for 2021 - we are optimistic that travel will be permitted.
  • If you are looking now for a holiday in 2021 - don't leave it too late to decide as we have already moved lots of holidays from 2020 to 2021 for guests, so weeks are starting to fill up quickly!
  • If you have booked with us for 2021, but would prefer to move your holiday to 2022, please contact us for more details.

We would like to assure all of our guests that all of the properties on this website will be following a more rigorous cleaning protocol this year and details will be available in your holiday cottage.

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
