Information during the Corona virus

Because of the Corona virus we make extra efforts to secure a safe stay for our guests.

We have increased cleaning. Contact surfaces such such as doorhandles , water taps and card terminals are washed with disinfectant during the day.

There are sanitizers for you in several places. We also recommend you to wash your hands several times during the day.

We welcome all guests that feel healthy. If you feel the slightest illness please cancel your stay at Castanea in respect of other guests.
