Independent-hotels.info - Burgundy
Covid-19 info France is back open for business again but the virus has not gone away.
It could still come back. Hotels, large and small, are bound by strict
sanitation rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as
zero-risk. The risks are, nonetheless, mathematically smaller in
smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big
hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that
are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain
virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. Many of the
small hotels listed on iHi
are in small towns and villages, or even out in the back of beyond,
where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.
This page of iHi independent hotels
directory presents a selection of small
hotels in Burgundy - hotels with character, offering a warm welcome and
a pleasant stay. Often family hotels, these establishments are local
businesses that are part of the economic fabric of their region.
Hotel rates are liable to be cheaper outside peak holiday
periods and holiday weekends : but the hotels selected are reasonably
priced for what they offer.
