Holidays as we come out of the pandemic

We understand that you may have all sorts of questions about your next chalet rental

To help, we’ve put together information on everything from our updated cancellation policy to cleaning and shopping.

For Bookings Made After 22 October 2021

COVID-19 Cancellation Protection

To give you extra security in your holiday plans, many of our properties now include cancellation protection in the form of a credit note.

Should you have to cancel your booking because of COVID-19 related border closures or lockdowns*, you will receive a credit note for 100% of the monies you have paid. This is valid at the same property for 27 months from your original arrival date.

Guests travelling from the UK, mainland EU and Switzerland can cancel up to the day before arrival to claim the credit note. For all other countries cancellation must be received 12 weeks prior to arrival.

Covid Protection

Look for the COVID PROTECTION logo to see which properties include the credit note.

COVID-19 Travel Insurance

We would strongly recommend you take out appropriate travel insurance that covers health issues related to COVID-19. A number of insurance companies now offer this option including -

This list is not exhaustive, there are other providers that may be more appropriate to your needs.

New Payment Terms

To help spread the cost of your next chalet rental we’ve also changed our payment terms. Now you pay just 25% deposit to secure your booking (previously 35%).

The final 75% isn’t due until eight weeks before your arrival date. (For bookings made within eight weeks of arrival the full 100% will be payable.)

We hope this answers some of your questions. If you haven’t found the information you’re looking for please contact us.

For Your Peace of Mind

To give you greater peace of mind we have introduced comprehensive sanitation and cleaning protocols for every chalet, that follows the detailed guidelines that have been specified by the French government to ensure all of our properties are cleaned and disinfected to the highest standards. See below (in French):

While our cleaning teams are adapting their procedures to follow the latest advice, we would ask you to understand that it is impossible for us, or any other company, to guarantee a property is 100% germ free. However, private rental homes have very few people coming and going, meaning a far safer environment than other locations.

For the wellbeing of our guests and our team, we have made the following changes to our cleaning routines:

The check-in time has been changed to 18:00, while check-out is now 09:00 on the day of departure. This provides our cleaning team with more time to implement the additional cleaning procedures required.

Property Airing
The first action of our cleaning team is to open all doors and windows, to ensure maximum ventilation of the property. All of our cleaners now wear disposable face masks and gloves throughout the cleaning process.

Antiviral cleaning
The cleaning team at every chalet has been instructed to use a non-toxic, antiviral cleaning agent on all hard surfaces as the first stage of cleaning.

Disinfecting deep cleaning
This is followed with a deep clean using a bleach product, which is a strong and effective disinfectant that kills bacteria, fungus and viruses. The cleaning team focuses particularly on high usage areas such as hard surfaces, door handles, kitchens and bathrooms.

In addition, bedding and other linens are all washed at a very high temperature.

If you would like extra peace of mind it is possible to bring your own cleaning products.

For Your Convenience

We have partnered with selected local suppliers of food and groceries, who will all deliver directly to your OVO Network chalet. Enjoy fresh bread and patisseries, apero platters, fresh fish and meat, wines, artisan beers and more, all delivered to your doorstep. You can provide some much needed support for our local community by using these services, and continue social distancing if you choose.
