Holidays in Italy and covid: all the changes in the resorts, questions and answers

Spending covid free holidays in the Italian regions of Sardinia, Calabria and Abruzzo in total safety and tranquility is possible thanks to the adoption of Coronavirus anti-infection prevention and safety measures put in place by Club Esse to protect the health of all guests and collaborators of this 2020 summer season.

During the COVID-19 epidemiological emergency, Club Esse worked on the restart to protect the safety of guests and collaborators, bearing always in mind the goal of relaxation and fun, developing a series of anti-coronavirus prevention measures essential for a covid free holiday in Italy, and precisely in Sardinia, Calabria and Abruzzo.

In this way it was possible to combine the typical seaside resorts formula and hotel services with new simple rules that can ensure the guest to spend a peaceful and relaxed holiday, without sacrificing fun and entertainment, which has always been the heart of the summer offer in the hotels and resorts of the chain.
