Terms and conditions
• Each booking is nominal and can under no circumstances be given up or sublet. Booking is valid only after the campsite has accepted it, and received the booking deposit, which can be paid by credit card. The booking deposit is 30% of the stay (excluding tourist tax), with a minimum amount of 20€.
• For accommodation, balance is due one month before arrival, as well as the 350 € guarantee deposit. For pitches, balance is due on arrival.
• If you book accommodation less than 30 days before date of arrival, the whole amount of the stay will be due at time of booking, as well as the security deposit for accommodation bookings.
• Minors can not book, and are not allowed to stay on their own on the campsite. The person who books is responsible for the minors in the group. For minors staying without their parents, a written authorisation from parents must be sent before arrival, with their contact details.
• If you have preferences (such as a specific pitch or position), we’ll do our best to meet them. However we can not be held responsible in case these preferences can not be met. Pitch or Mobile home number is given as an indication and does not engage any contractual obligation.
Our prices include the pitch or accommodation rental, and do not include extra charges such as pets, some activities, services such as linen or barbecue rental, or the security deposit for accommodation bookings. The local tourist tax (0.66 € per day and per person 18 years old and older, at the customer’s expense) is not included in our prices.
3. SECURITY DEPOSIT
Security deposit is 350€ per accommodation booking. It is due one month before arrival, by card. It is simply a form you must fill in, that allows the campsite to charge from your card the amounts of lost/damaged items, and cost of cleaning if the accommodation is not perfectly clean on departure. On arrival the campsite can ask you for your card to check that information given on the form is valid. This form will be given back to you on departure after your accommodation has been checked. For departures outside reception opening hours, the security deposit form will be sent back by post after the accommodation has been controlled by the staff.
4. ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES
On arrival you must hand in the confirmation letter that we’ll send by post after balance has been paid for.
• Accommodation bookings in July and August are only made weekly, from Saturday to Saturday. Arrival time is between 3:30pm to 8pm and departure time is between 8am and 10am. Outside July and August, shorter stays (from 1 night) are possible - see prices “Week-ends and short stays.

At the end of the stay, the accommodation must be left perfectly clean.

• Any modification to the reservation resulting in an increase in the amount of the stay will be free of charge. Any modification to the reservation resulting in a reduction in the amount of the stay must be notified by post no later than 30 days before arrival. A fixed modification fee of 40 euros will be charged. However, any modification resulting in a reduction of more than 25% of the initial amount of the stay will be considered as a cancellation.
• Each modification must be requested in writing, and will be subject to acceptance by the campsite, and availability. The campsite reserves the right to consider as a cancellation a change in the dates or in the length of the stay. In that case, cancellation policy applies.
• Any change not mentioned on arrival or misrepresentation will lead to cancellation of the contract by right, and all amounts paid will remain the campsite’s property.
• In case of absolute necessity, the campsite reserves the right to change the type of accommodation for a similar one.
6. LATE ARRIVAL / EARLY DEPARTURE
• The customer must advise the campsite if he arrives late. If the customer has not arrived within 24 hours of the beginning of the period for which the reservation was made (unless you inform us of any delay), we reserve the right to re-let the accommodation or the pitch, with no refund or compensation.
• No refund or compensation will be granted in case of late arrival or early departure, unless cancellation insurance has been subscribed and covers the reason for the late arrival or early departure- in that case refund will be given by the insurance company, not the campsite.
All cancellations must be made by letter, sent in recorded signed for delivery. Date of cancellation is date of the post office stamp. In all cases of cancellation, whatever the reason, there will be no refund of the booking deposit.* If cancellation takes place more than 30 days before arrival date, the customer will be refunded any extra payment made after payment of booking deposit. If cancellation takes place less than 30 days before arrival date, the whole cost of the stay is due by the customer, and there will be no refund whatsoever.* unless cancellation insurance has been subscribed and covers the reason for cancellation - in that case a refund will be made by the insurance company, not the campsite.
