Covid-19 safety measures at EcoGites of Lenault



In order to make stays here as safe as possible for both guests and ourselves with regard to Covid-19 we are bringing in a series of changes as detailed below.  Guests will be sent more detailed information before arrival.

Generally:

  • Where-ever possible we will be adding at least one and up to three days between bookings.
  • If this is not possible we will ask guests to arrive later and leave earlier than normal to give us more time to prepare the gite.

Cleaning and safety measures:

  • Between each booking the gite will be thoroughly cleaned.  All hard surfaces will be disinfected. Once dry they will be steam cleaned.
  • Hard surfaces in the play area will be disinfected and toys rotated between stays.
  • All kitchen plates etc will be washed on a hot wash between bookings.
  • Soft furnishings will be sprayed with disinfectant and steam cleaned where possible.
  • We will have 2 boxes of books and toys for children and these will be rotated between stays.
  • Adult books and games have been removed. Games can however be requested before or during your stay.
  • All bookings will be subject to a €50 cleaning fee.  The gite must be left tidy and the washing up done. Failure to do this will result in loss of part or all of your security deposit.

When guests are here:

  • We will have much less contact with guests that previously. We ask that guests maintain a distance of at least 2m from us. For this reason we are not currently able to allow guests to help us with animal feeding or egg collecting.
  • We are a single gite so guests will have sole use of the gite garden, play area and play barn.
  • Our garden, house, barns, wood store area and animal fields are out of bounds to guests at all times.
  • We ask guests to use hand sanitiser or wash their hands in soap and water for at least 20 seconds when they first enter the gite or return to it after a trip out.
  • We have previously been happy for you to welcome friends at the gite. However until further notice this is not possible.
  • We are asking that where possible guests bring their own bedding including duvets, pillow and covers. Please let us know if this is will cause you problems.
  • Guests are to bring their own towels, bath mat and tea towels.
  • We will provide suitable cleaning materials and cloths for you to use during your stay.
  • Whilst at the gite we are asking guests to regularly disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, light switches, backs of chairs etc.  We will provide disinfecting products and cloths. Please throw any used cloths in the bin before you leave.

We appreciate that the cleaning products we will use and the fact we will be using single use cleaning cloths does not fit in with our normal cleaning regime of natural cleaning products and washable cloths. However at this time we must do what is necessary to ensure your safety.
