Special terms of stay related to the COVID-19 health crisis
Your safety, as well as that of our own, is of great importance. So, following governmental & industry recommendations and regulations, we have implemented the following procedures in order to deal with the impact COVID-19 is having upon our lives.
Pass Vaccinal – QR Code: At present, we no longer require guests staying with us to produce a valid ‘Pass Vaccinal’. However, will closely adhere to any French Governmental advice that is given over the following months.
Positive results / Contact Case (cas contact): Testing positive to COVID-19 or being a cas contact prior to your arrival does not qualify for a cancellation without charge. You will need to check with your holiday insurance what cover you have.
Masks: Wearing a mask may be mandatory for certain situations within the environs of La Belle Demeure. Therefore, please have one to hand during your stay. If you are someone who refuses to wear a mask when appropriate or asked to do so, please do not book with us.
Social Distancing: During your stay, we will ask you to respect others at all times and to ensure that they are respected by all those (including children) who accompany you. In France such “Gestes Barrières” are considered to be washing your hands regularly, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue, the use single-use tissues & to not shake hands or embrace others unless specifically invited to do so. A degree of Social (or physical) distancing will be advisable throughout La Belle Demeure, including the swimming pool & terraces. Some common areas will remain inaccessible this year.
Swimming Pool: As mentioned, physical distancing is to be respected even when you are in the presence of other people in the water. Whilst swimming, please do not splash water towards others or out of the pool. We would truly appreciate it if you could provide your own pool towels if possible. Thank you in advance.
Arrival: As usual, our arrival times are between 5pm and 7pm. We will welcome you personally in the courtyard, while respecting physical distancing and “Gestes Barrières”. Should there be anything you think that we haven’t covered, or that you need help with, we are always available. Respect for arrival and departure times (10am) is crucial for everyone’s safety to allow us to disinfect the room correctly.
Breakfast: We will now present our usual breakfast buffet but should you feel more comfortable to be served yoghurt, cereal, cheese etc. directly from the kitchen to your seat, please let us know when you book.
Table d’hôtes Evening Meal: We are delighted to spend the evenings around our big communal table again. Should you feel uncomfortable with this set up, please do contact us prior to your stay.
Common Areas: Some common areas, such as the Ground Floor lounge in the main house (including the TV), will remain inaccessible this year and others will only be accessible at mealtimes, as & when necessary. As for the outdoor chairs and tables, we will disinfect them regularly and we are happy to disinfect any chair that you wish to use.
Despite all these hindrances, we hope that you will still wish to book some time with us in this lovely part of France and that this one is as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Philippe and Richard
