The corona virus has caused an insecure future. We know for sure that Fontebona is an excellent place to keep physical (not social!) distance and for avoiding masses. Tranquility and space always have been important here. Please give us a notice in time if you want to visit us, in order for us to take the adecuate corona steps.
People residing in Asturias are allowed to visit their family and friends from the 11th of May, and can also visit Fontebona again. This is fase 1 of 4.
In one of the next weeks people residing in Spain are free to travel outside their region again. So you know people who will have to spend their free time in Spain? Would they feel at home in Fontebona? Why don't you tell them about us.
As yet it is unclear when people from outside Spain will be admitted again.
Time will tell. We will try to keep you informed about recent developments through updates on this page.
