At the time of writing, Lanzarote is in phase 3 of the de-escalation process which began officially on June 8th.
There are social distancing rules in place still to ensure everyone remains safe and masks are required where social distancing cannot be maintained. Many of the bars, cafes, restaurants, speciality shops and a host of other non-essential business are already open. Social meetings of groups of up to 20 people are permitted and weddings can be held for up to 150 guests in open-air spaces and 75 indoors. Museums, Cinemas and theatres can open with up to 50% capacity.
Also, we are now all enjoying the beaches and of course the stunning weather that has blessed us daily since our strict lockdown ended.
At present, with testing on the island having been ramped up, days go by with no new positive results. This week’s figures confirmed that Lanzarote has no new Covid-19 cases. The number of total cases, since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, stands at just 87, of which only 3 remain in treatment, whilst 78 people have fully recovered. Lanzarote proved to be one of the least affected European regions.
However, we are not writing this post to gloat over how lucky we are, far from it, rather we are looking forward to some of you coming here to take advantage of the islands unique benefits…
From the beginning of July, we will be welcoming more international travellers to Lanzarote as flight restrictions will ease – so now is the perfect time to book a 2020/21 holiday.
Private villas remain the safest option in terms of social distancing, especially a large house like Villa Alcalde with its vast walled gardens, huge pool, hot tub, 2nd outside kitchen and BBQ pit, table tennis, pool table, sun deck and much more!
There is some irony in the fact that long before Covid-19, many families and groups were isolating at Villa Alcalde simply due to the fact that, from arrival they didn’t want to leave. For many guests we have helped arrange private catering, home deliveries and more, from private yoga teachers to wine tastings, you name it… Villa Alcalde is the perfect private backdrop for your dream holiday experiences.
At Villa Alcalde you have the advantage of a professional team located on the island to support all your needs.
The safety and well-being of our clients and staff is always a priority. As such, following Covid 19, we’ve introduced additional preventative measures including;
Sanitisation of the villa with an Anti-Covid 19 disinfectant between client stays.
Masks provided as part of the welcome pack.
Extra washing machine powder provided for clients.
Extra towels provided.
We may also need to request additional documentation from guests to validate identity, travel itinerary and other relevant information.
Please note that at present we are not offering mid-stay cleans, this is recommended by local guidelines, in order to minimise interaction between our housekeeping teams and your family during your stay. Our management/maintenance team are local, working as normal, ‘on-call’ to you throughout for any urgent support.
Our de-escalation process, relaxing of rules and opening of travel/flight options is fast-moving, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss options for your preferred dates.
Likewise, the options for personal services onsite at Villa Alcalde are vast, including catering and home delivery of groceries, so rather than give you a massive list of options, why don’t you just tell us what works best for you and we are here to help you plan everything before you arrive.
