Summer's here, and we are all working hard to welcome you in the best conditions. This brief overview of the hygiene measures in place will help you to enjoy your holiday with us.
Cancel at no cost
Accommodation providers are proposing flexible cancellation terms. On the website Saint Martin reservation, most of the proposed accommodation have “free cancellation” labels which means that you can cancel your booking until 8 days before your arrival date, if you do so for a reason linked to the health crisis. However, not being eligible for the “pass sanitaire” is not a valid reason for cancellation.
Large areas and outdoor activities
The mountains are the ideal place to get away from it all and explore new horizons, far from the crowds of the coast and the big cities. The mountains offer a breath of fresh air to take time for yourself and your family.
There are plenty of outdoor activities: hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, paragliding, rafting and canyoning, but also guided cultural heritage tours, introduction to the local wildlife, visits to alpine farms... you are sure to find something to suit you.
As from Friday 30th July, face masks are compulsory throughout the department of Savoie for anyone aged 11 and above, for the following purposes:
- to join gatherings, meetings or activities organised on the public highway or at venues open to the public, whenever this leads to concentrations of more than 10 people;
- at markets, bric-a-brac sales, car-boot sales or similar activities;
- in any queue forming outside a stadium, auditorium, projection room, sports facility, marquee, games room, museum, station, shop or cultural venue.
Following the announcements from the French President on the 12th July 2021, the national measures that are to be enforced in the Vallée des Belleville are as follows:
- 21st July 2021: the “pass sanitaire” will be compulsory for all leisure and cultural spaces with more than 50 people.
- From the 1st August: the “pass sanitaire” will also be compulsory in cafés, restaurants, shopping centres, hospitals, care homes, and for long-distance plane, train and coach journeys.
Inspections are carried out at the entrance to public venues:
- Centre Sportif
- Espace aqualudique
- Les Bruyères activity centre
- Admission to the cinemas is, however, still possible without a health certificate. Capacity is limited to 49 people and face masks must be worn.
What are the conditions of acquiring a “pass sanitaire”?
- Vaccination certificate, illustrating that you are fully vaccinated;
- A negative test result from the last 48 hours, or maximum 72 hours for border controls, bearing a QR code in paper or digital form;
- Positive PCR or antigen test result certifying that you have recovered from Covid-19, from at least 11 days prior and less than 6 months, bearing a QR code in paper or digital form.
