Corona virus

Today's update relating to Covid-19 (Novel Coronavirus) and the measures the French Retreat is taking to keep all our guests, staff and their families safe.


Due to the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) in France the French government outlined new measures on 14 March to delay the spread. This includes the closure of all non-essential establishments open to the public from Midnight, 14 March, until further notice (i.e. restaurants, cafes, cinemas). Food shops, pharmacies, petrol stations, and banks will stay open.

We are well and staying home and enjoying the beautiful weather, the chance to get on with some outstanding jobs and the opportunity to be creative. I am hoping the large block of stone outside our house will finally be sculpted into something very beautiful.


For anyone wishing to cancel their booking we are happy to transfer your deposit to another date in the Autumn/Winter or for the equivalent dates next year.


We will do our best to mitigate any impact. We are committed to ensuring guests are supported during this difficult time.

The British Government have updated their travel advice today here, and the latest information and advice here. There is also very good advice about travel insurance and your rights here.


I shall continue to update you as the situation develops, and please contact me if you have any queries or concerns.
