Covid-19 France Update
Launching our French Ski Programme

On Tuesday 24th November President Macron addressed the nation and confirmed that all bars and restaurants will remain closed until 20th January 2021.  France’s ski resorts may have to remain closed until this time in order to manage the second wave they are currently coming out of, and to avoid a third peak.

The national lockdown restrictions currently in place will ease from 15th December for the festive period and general travel restrictions will be lifted, but much as in the UK, life will still be rather restricted under a tier system.  France’s current lockdown is really starting to curb the case numbers and hospital bed situation and they are certainly now back on the downward stretch from their second peak.

Wanting to get your 2021 ski fix?  We have been promised, as an industry, confirmation as to resort opening dates by Friday 4th December 2020 following discussion with other European leaders so take a look in the meantime at our exciting ski chalets and start planning!

Check out the links below for some good ideas or give Sarah a call.
