SAFE HOLIDAY PROTOCOL #VIVOSAFREEANDSAFE

EXPECTED OPENING DATE: MAY 28, 2021

The purpose of this document is to inform about the adjustments and practices adopted by our resort for the 2021 season based on currently available decrees issued by the Italian Government.

All information is promptly updated pending the evolving of the emergency and related directives issued by governing bodies, which might in some cases change what has thus far been planned.

The ample spaces available both indoors and outdoors, for instance the large, shared spaces and the 23 hectares (230,000 square metres) of surrounding land, allow us to ensure our guests a personal distancing that goes well beyond directives. All our refreshment points provide large outdoor spaces, and in those few areas of possible density, we take all the necessary measures and precautions in order to ensure the correct distancing by means of a detailed corporate prevention protocol. We have always taken hygiene and cleanliness rules very seriously and are taking additional measures to ensure the safety of our Guests and collaborators.
