Away from government debates and press conferences, some French have taken off, direction Greece. We are not talking about holidays, but telecommuting, by the sea, it is always better than the view of the Paris ring road. In Amorgos, the hotels are full and we no longer count the French in the reserve books.
Like Thierry, many of them left France to put their suitcases in this corner of paradise, but difficult to access: “When we saw that the health situation in Paris was not improving, they told us why not leave”, since “they are teleworking “. “We arrived in November, we work hard, but we take sun baths “, he explains.
Consequence: Difficulty finding a free room, as confirmed by the owner of a hotel by the sea. “We have an ideal view and good meals, but when we arrive, everyone asks if we have wi-fi, that’s the condition“says the manager. The island’s hotels thus find a smile after a year 2020 marked by a dizzying drop in tourist activity in more than 74% for the whole country.
