Dear guests,


Unfortunately, the Corona crisis affects everyone like you, the catering industry and the tourist industry.


The current lockdown, called Confinement in France, lasts until May 11, and even then we have to wait and see when the borders open, the planned measures are relaxed and we can hopefully think about the holidays.


At the moment we are busy making our estate Le Vieux Manoir "Corona Proof"; we will use the 1.5 meter society so that we maintain the appropriate distance at all times.


What does this mean?

As our regular guests already know, our gites are so far apart that the appropriate distance speaks for itself.

At the pool we will ensure that the sunbeds for guests will also be 1.5 meters apart.

We will move the table d´hotes where our guests sit inside our table to our rear area that will also be set up on the 1.5 meter society.


The French government has determined that events are prohibited until mid-July.

The cozy French night markets will then expire in July and perhaps August.

To compensate for this, we will organize the following fun activities in our backyard for the guests who want to participate:

BBQ evening / music evening / games evening / pub quiz and all this in a French atmosphere on an attractively lit piece of estate …………… in the 1.5 meter society.


Please note; guests who choose to spend their evening quietly at the gite will not be bothered by this.


In addition to this area, we also want to create a Jeu de boules court.

In short; we will do everything we can to please our guests in the “new normal” ……


If you have any questions, let us know.


Finally, we wish you a lot of strength and hope to see you in La Douce France at Le Vieux Manoir!


Stay healthy!

Restez and sécurité!

Stay safe!


With kind regards,


Sem and Louise
