Health & Saftey Protocol this summer

Our campsites have put many health and safety measures in place and here in France the situation in the country has dramatically improved. Social distancing measures are in place and extra disinfection measures and this has meant that life has gone back to very similar to before.
Update for European clients from Holland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland etc

The borders of France are as of today open and therefore you are now able to come on holiday to us in the French Alps! We will be welcoming you with open arms and we will be very happy for you to be joining us this summer.

(We are aware that some countries are not allowing their citizens to leave therefore please contact us if this is the case and we can offer you a credit note for a future stay.)
Update for those from the UK 
As of the 10th July UK clients are able to travel to France by air or boat or tunnel and afterwards return to the UK without having to go through a quarantine.  We are therefore finally able to welcome UK clients!
What is the current Health & Saftey protocol that we have in place on the campsites? 
What are the current regulations in France?
  • In some shops, bars and restaurants and on public transport, you are required to wear masks.

These are the measures that we’ve put in place on the campsite:
  • Hand gel obligatory on entrance to all public areas (provided by the campsite)

  • Animation activities for children will be carried out in groups of 10
  • Maximum of 2 people in reception at a time and plexi glass in reception
Animations for the summer will still be running in July & August and will be adapted to the government guidelines given at the time.

Opening 12th June 2020

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!

Merci beaucoup and we wish you all well and we hope to be seeing you this summer!
