SOCIAL DISTANCING we are in a rural setting in small hamlet of 10 houses. It’s a 1.2 km walk through country lanes to the centre of the local village. This has a restaurant, bar, shop, butcher & pharmacy. The small medieval town of St Emilion is 9 kms away with lots of terrace restaurants. If you do not want to go into any big towns or hypermarkets you can be simply live locally using village shops. There are also out-door markets almost every day. There are beaches on 2 local lakes, also set in the countryside, but little used except at the weekends. Each cottage has its own garden and/or terrace with your own sun loungers, tables & chairs and BBQ’s. The only common area is the pool with its large sun terrace It has more well-spaced sun-loungers, tables & chairs etc. For this period, we are increasing the pool chemicals & ask people to use the pool shower before swimming. It is easy to use the pool for a swim & then return to your own garden/terrace for sunbathing & relaxing.
The maximum number of people if all the properties are in use is only 10.
