Completely normal policy and not a big deal. In most jobs it is pretty hard to do any meaningful work at that time anyway.
I worked a few years for a small company in France (a while back now) and I would be informed in April when my 3 weeks off in the summer would be - no choice, no flexibility, no option to take holiday at any other time instead.
When I had to take 2 days off to go back to the UK it was a massive deal and I had to sign a statement saying I acknowledged the huge inconvenience to the organisation and committed to still meeting my targets and had better ensure my co-workers would not be impacted, blah blah.
