LATEST UPDATE : July 01 2020
The number of hospitalised Covid patients in the Alpes-Maritimes as at June 30 is 40 - this is 85% down from its peak of 280 in mid-April.
Since Lockdown ended 7 weeks ago, there has been no ‘second wave’ of infections. In fact new cases of Covid-19 have consistently fallen day by day since the restrictions were lifted. We are getting close to normality.
Nice Airport is now receiving close to 50 flights a day, compared to just 10 or so a month ago.
Our area is the most popular destination in France right now.
Following the decision that quarantine restrictions between the UK and France will end on July 06 2020, new booking enquiries have filled the remaining Summer weeks at Villa Seburga. The Villa is now fully booked until October. With the heated pool now reaching 30C year round, we are expecting to be quite busy going forward into the Autumn/Fall and Spring.
After the fanfare announcement a couple of weeks ago that the Monaco Super Yacht Show was to go ahead as scheduled in September, it began to dawn on the organisers that most of the Super Yachts were still on the other side of the Atlantic (Florida, Caribbean etc.) and restricted from entering Europe without quarantine for the foreseeable future. Oh dear, it slowly sank in - you can’t have a yacht show without yachts… so it was postponed again! Those waiting for good things will just have to keep waiting…

FLEXIBLE CANCELLATION POLICY
All guests who have booked directly with the Owners of Villa Seburga can expect a ‘no quibble’ full refund or date change if they are unable to get flights or prevented from travelling due to governmental restrictions or compulsory quarantine requirements in either France or their home country.
Most of those affected in March to June have re-booked for 2021. Thank you!
Other than the holding deposit, which in itself is refundable under the above guarantee, we are being flexible on the payment date of balances and security bonds, which are normally payable 60 days prior to the rental, until closer to the scheduled arrival date. Essentially, no guests will lose out financially as a result of flight cancellations or other events that are beyond their control.
Guests who have booked through listing sites should follow the various policies of those sites.
Keep safe and healthy
