COVID-19

Update in France 2021

The third national lockdown in France ended on 3 May 2021. There will be a phased ending to the nationwide 19h00-6h00 curfew. The curfew hour will be moved to 21h00 on 19 May; to 23h00 on 9 June and will end on 30 June. Travel outside of these times will be permitted for compelling reasons (work, training, health, mission of general interest, moving) and only with an exemption certificate.

Restaurants and bars will be able to open on 19 May, but only for outside areas. Internal areas will be opened 9 June, although they will continue to be subject to the curfew restrictions. The change is conditional on the department having an infection rate lower than 400/100,000.

Face masks must be worn and social distancing of at least 1 m is to be respected.

Summer 2021 Bookings

In summer 2021 Le Grenier will be the only property available to rent.

Should the French government introduce a new lock-down and / or border closure, any booking would have to be cancelled and we would give you the choice of postponing or reimbursing your stay. In the event of cancellation of your stay for other than the two reasons mentioned above, the T&Cs accepted at booking stage would apply.

Due to Covid-19 we will delay asking for the balance through this site until 4 weeks prior to your holiday start date in 2021. We would also review with you any updates that may affect your booking around that time.

We recommend having adequate travel insurance that covers your journey and your holiday here at Pyron.
