Bonjour to you all,
We hope that you and your families are keeping well.
After a further announcement from the French government yesterday on 28th May, we have learnt that we are able to open the campsite in June and the new opening date will be the 12th June.
The update for the country is extremely positive - the virus levels in the country have continued to significantly decrease and all areas apart from 1 region of France ( Loise near Paris ) are now 'green' zones. All restaurants, bars and cafés, swimming pools , gyms, tourist businesses etc are now able to open from the 2nd June. The lake and beaches will also be open from the 2nd June.
European Borders Information
After June 15th, France expects to open the borders with European countries without imposing a 14 day quarantine except with those countries that impose this on France. It is therefore very likely that you will be able to come to us from Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy etc starting from the 15th June.
At the moment the only European countries that have announced a quarantine is the UK and Ireland. Those from the UK/ Ireland therefore are subject to a 14 day quarantine which is at the moment set until the 29th June, when this policy will be reviewed by the UK government. We will therefore start contacting all UK/ Irish customers who are due to stay with us in June, offering a movement of deposit & stay to later in 2020 or 2021.
What's the outlook for UK customers being able to come this summer?
The outlook is very positive if the UK folllows the same progress that France has made and gets the 'R' level down to under 1..It also depends on what the UK government decide to do after 3 weeks of the quarantine period being imposed. We are hearing reports that these rules may change quickly on the quarantine with European countries between the UK, therefore it is sounding very likely that travel from the UK to France in July is going to be possible..
With regards to Ireland we are unclear, therefore we rely on you to see what you want to do.
What are the health & safety measures that we will be implementing for the opening?
The Federation of Campings and the government will be finalising the safety protocol over the next few days and as soon as we have further news about these measures, we will be in contact with you to provide the details.
We have been directed already that the outdoor swimming pool, bar, restaurant , toilet and shower block and playground will be allowed to open under certain conditions.
We will send you a further update soon with the full details.
Camping at Les fontaines will be the perfect holiday this summer!!
Camping and staying on campsites is being reported to be one of the prefereable holiday types this summer and our location in the mountains and the lake is the perfect holiday for you this year!
