1/ SERVICES OFFERED
This is the pitch for your own tent or caravan. Your stay is calculated on the basis of a basic package which includes the pitch, the number of persons specified in the package, the installation of either your tent or caravan, your vehicle on the pitch or in the car park and access to the infrastructures, entertainment and sanitary installations. Additional fees (supplementary person, adult or child, 6 -amp electricity if necessary), which are not included in the package are to be added to the final bill. All stays are free for children under 2 years.
From 8 July to 19 August, the pitch, for tent or caravan, is reserved from Sunday to Sunday, arrival after 1 p.m. and departure before midday. An extension may be granted on site subject to availability.
The hiker's package, when offered, designates a product for a passing visitor, on foot or with a motorcycle, staying in a small tent ('canadienne', 'igloo') for a couple of nights only.
This type of accommodation must be booked Saturday to Saturday, Wednesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Saturday (10 nights) or Saturday to Wednesday (11 nights) from 4 p.m. (time of arrival) to 10 a.m. (time of departure) throughout the period 2/7 to 30/8, except where indicated to the contrary on the individual campsite page (per night rental). Outside these dates, overnight stays are possible (2 nights or more). Prices include the number of persons (up to the maximum specified for the accommodation), water, gas, electricity, your vehicle (one per rental) and access to the infrastructures, entertainment and sanitary facilities. Accommodation is fully equipped but sheets are not supplied. However, these can be hired on some campsites. Before leaving, you are responsible for cleaning your accommodation (see Deposit). Any person occupying rented accommodation or residing on the same pitch, in addition to the stated capacity, shall be liable to a payment of a supplement, after receiving authorisation from the site manager. Detailed descriptions of the residences are available from the Central Booking Office and the website: www.campeole.co.uk. You may notice a few slight differences in the disposition of your accommodation or the equipment supplied within the same package, from one campsite to another. Rest assured that your personal comfort and the sleeping capacity is not affected.
Specific requests for a particular pitch or residence on the campsite can only be met subject to availabilities on your arrival.
ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURES
All activities, whether payable or free of charge, referred to in this catalogue, may in certain circumstances, beyond our control and/or due to a case of force majeure, be modified or cancelled during your stay at the campsite. We decline liability for such events.
The infrastructures that are at project stage are mentioned for information only in our catalogue. Campéole may not be held liable in the event that, for reasons beyond our control and/or due to a case of force majeure, these infrastructures cannot be completed in time for the current season. Campéole undertakes to inform its customers in real time about the accessible infrastructures on its website www.campeole.co.uk.
Regardless of the package chosen, bare pitch or rented accommodation, additional charges will be imposed for all extra vehicles (car, trailer, motorbike, boat, etc.) when such are authorised, as well as additional tents, pets, visitors, etc. All of these prices are set out in the “camping -caravanning rates” sections.
Our VAT-inclusive prices do not include the tourist tax, which is levied on behalf of the municipalities. The amount of the supplement will be made known to you when you reserve for certain sites. The tax is billed at the same time as your accommodation. It is payable according to the same payment schedule. It can be neither modified nor refunded on your arrival. For other sites, it is payable at the same time as the balance for the holiday (30 days before your arrival on site).

Throughout their stay, campers benefit from Campéole´s third party liability cover for physical or material damage for which the company is acknowledged as being liable. On arrival at the campsite, campers-caravanners must present a valid insurance certificate covering their caravan, tent and/or their equipment, guaranteeing them specifically in terms of third party liability. If this certificate is not shown, insurance must be taken out at the site. We decline all liability in case of theft of or damage to personal items. Our third party liability does not cover theft of or damage to tents, caravans or their contents. Campéole may not be held liable for damage caused by external forces, such as storms, gales or whirlwinds, over which our staff have no control.Campers are also reminded that car parks are not supervised and parking is at users´ own risk
Minors unaccompanied by their parents are not accepted on the campsites (pitches and rented accommodation). Only certain sites authorise this under certain conditions (written parental approval). For details, please contact the Central Booking Office.
Dogs and cats are generally permitted on the CAMPEOLE campsites, with the exception of 1st and 2nd category dogs. Only few sites do not accept animals. We recommend that you signal the presence of an animal and obtain confirmation of admittance when booking. Only one dog can be accepted per registration. We require however that they be kept on a leash inside the campsite. Please respect the campsite's hygiene and environment. Their vaccination certificate must be presented on arrival at the campsite: anti-rabies vaccination and tattoo certificates are obligatory!
12/ HOLIDAY VOUCHERS OR EMPLOYER-SUBSIDISED HOLIDAYS
Campéole, whose legal status is that of a SARL, does not hold a ministerial accreditation that is usually issued to associations. (It does not come under "gites, house, family campsites"). That is why holiday vouchers cannot be accepted as a method of payment. Please therefore contact your "Caisse d'Allocations Familiale" to find out whether a refund is possible. That is why we would also suggest that you contact your "Services d'Action Sociale" or Works Council before booking, to find out about the conditions governing the allocation of a "holiday" subsidy.
Any claim arising from a stay at one of our campsites must be made in writing and sent by registered mail with recorded delivery, within 20 days after your stay, to the following address:
