Covid 19 specific measures

We are open and receive all travellers from 16 December 2020, the end date of the lockdown. Meals are served "in room".

And at L'Echappée Belle Bed and Breakfast, we take care of our guests!

Cleanliness has always been one of the strong points of the house, as demonstrated by the score of 9.96 out of more than 140 reviews.
Consequently, several measures are taken during this period when the rooms are open for booking:

Special attention is paid to the ventilation and disinfection of the rooms.
The paper documents usually found in the rooms (welcome booklet, drinks menu, tourist guide) have been scanned and are sent by e-mail.
Linen is washed at 60°C.
Hydroalcoholic hand gel is available.
The contact surfaces of the common areas are also disinfected several times a day.
The breakfast or dinner service is maintained but is no longer done in the common room.

Finally, to guarantee the best possible welcome in the Covid 19 context, L'Echappée Belle adheres to the "Séjour Serein" Health Charter drawn up by a group of owners taking into account the recommendations of the competent authorities.
