If the containment is completed, the conditions of the déconfinement remain strict : impossible to move more than 100 kilometres from his place of residence or a ban to gather at more than 10 people. Not to mention the bars and restaurants that remain closed until further notice. Just as some beaches and some parks, always inaccessible to avoid a new wave of transmission of the Covid-19. So what’s it going to be like summer vacation for the French ? For Stéphane Bern, it is the opportunity to make the holiday blue white red , has he said on BFM TV, Friday, may 22. He made a call to the French heritage. “We always keep the visits close to home for the time of retirement, but this is the time of the visit,” said the officer in charge of the heritage mission, often known as Mr. Heritage, before adding : “first, because we are 100 miles around of we to go to discover the culture, the art, the beauty, the heritage at hand, and then […] because our country is extraordinary. “

From a holiday in France, a “ citizen gesture

On social networks, Stéphane Bern has taken part in the initiative launched by the collective heritage 2.0, in the promotion of cultural sites in france, with the hashtag #CetÉtéJeVisiteLaFrance. “I think that we need to address the absence of all visitors – France usually receives 90 million foreign visitors this year, they will not be there, so it’ll have to be present everywhere,” said a man who spent his confinement surrounded by animals. Before explaining : “Because the visit of the heritage and of all our treasures tourist boost the economy in the territories. And at the same time, it was a virtuous circle : if you go to visit the heritage of the vicinity, you participate in its restoration, then we can do the work, you can embellish, and at the same time, you boost the local economy. Not the bars, the restaurants and cafes are still closed – but it should unlock within the next few weeks-but at least the merchants and make them live in the villages. “From a holiday in France is, therefore, a “citizen gesture” for Stéphane Bern. A way to boost the economy, and support ” guides speakers, autoentrepreneurs, the craftsmen.”
