Cleaning specific measures :

If cleanliness has always been one of our priority, the context obliges us to redouble our efforts.

For the B&B rooms, we will observe a "block" day between each departure and each arrival (There will be no arrival on the same day a room is released in the morning). This will give us the time for an intensive cleaning of the rooms. We will ask our guests to collect the dirty laundry and to leave it in one place when leaving the room.

For the Guest Houses, it is written in the contract that the Guests when checking out will return us the cottages «in a good state of cleanliness». We will now ask you to do a real cleaning at the end of your stay ; all necessary equipments will be made available. We’ll then do a second cleaning.

Common areas, door handles, stair ramps, etc. will be regularly disinfected.

Signs reminding of the barrier gestures to be respected are posted in the House.

We will offer you the possibility to wash your hands before entering the house.

For our B&B guests, breakfast will be served outdoors on separate (of at least 1.5m) individual tables. We will wear masks and gloves to ensure service.
