These Terms & Conditions set out the rights and obligations of the parties that make up the booking contract for touring pitches and rental units at our campsite.
By booking a pitch and/or rental unit at our campsite you acknowledge that you have read and accepted these Terms & Conditions.
We offer touring pitches and holiday units for rent.
➢ Touring pitches
These are camping pitches intended for tents, caravans and motorhomes.
The price of your stay is calculated on the basis of an all-in package that covers your pitch rental and the right for two people to camp on the pitch with either one tent and one vehicle or one caravan and one additional vehicle or one motorhome. It also includes access to our reception facilities, toilet and shower blocks, entertainment and activities. Depending on the package you chose, it may include an electric hook-up and other options where available.
You will need to select one of the following packages:
Nature Package: Package including a pitch without electricity
Comfort Package: Nature Package with electricity
Freecamp Package: Privilege Package including a pitch equipped with private toilets and showers
The package options listed above do not include any extra charges for additional campers, additional vehicles, pets, etc. that may be added to your chosen package.
➢ Rental units
Our rates include the rental of your chosen accommodation based on the number of people in your party (in line with the capacity of the unit in question), water, gas and electricity charges (but not the cost of charging electric and hybrid vehicles), parking for your vehicle and access to our reception facilities, toilet and shower blocks, entertainment and activities.
Our prices include the rental of accommodation according to the number of people (depending on the capacity of the accommodation), water, gas and electricity charges (excluding electric or hybrid vehicle engine battery charging) , vehicle parking, access to reception facilities, entertainment and sanitary facilities.
A security deposit of €250 will be requested following your reservation (cheque) on your arrival, which will be returned to you at the end of your stay and at the latest within a week by post from your departure. However, we reserve the right to keep part or all of it in the event of deterioration of the accommodation and/or its contents and/or equipment on the campsite. We also reserve the right to deduct the amount corresponding to cleaning costs if this has not been done on departure.
➢ Touring pitches and rental units
The prices indicated include VAT but do not include French tourist tax (or taxe de séjour).
Whether you book a touring pitch or a rental unit, extra charges will be made for additional people, additional vehicles, additional tents, pets, visitors, etc.
In addition, our prices may vary in line with economic and market conditions. The agreed price payable by you is the price indicated on your booking confirmation.
Flower Campings applies a dynamic pricing policy. This means that our rates may go up or down over time.
Partner benefits advantages and special offers cannot be applied retrospectively to confirmed bookings whether paid for in part or in full.
As a result, different customers may pay different prices for the same holiday. Under no circumstances will customers paying a higher price be refunded the difference between the price they have paid and the special offer price.
You can book your stay on our website at www.valleeverte.com
, on the Flower website at www.flowercampings.com or by telephone.
At the time of booking, you will be required to pay:
• a deposit of 30% of the total cost incl. VAT of your stay including the total cost incl. VAT of any additional services you have booked together with French tourist tax, where applicable;
• no application fees
• our holiday cancellation insurance premium if you have chosen this option.
Your booking does not become binding until you receive our email booking confirmation setting out the details of your stay.
You will be required to pay the balance of the price of your stay, including the price of any additional services you have booked including VAT and French tourist tax, where applicable, no later than 30 days before the start of your stay. If the balance is not paid by this date, your stay will be deemed cancelled and the cancelation conditions set out below will apply.
Bookings made less than 30 days before your arrival date must be paid for in full unless more favourable conditions apply. You will be informed should any such conditions apply.
➢ No cooling-off period
You should be aware that under section L. 221-28 12° of the French Consumer Code (Code de la consommation), there is no cooling-off period for travel-related products including accommodation, transport, hospitality and leisure services to be provided on a fixed date or for a fixed period.
➢ Maximum capacity
For safety and insurance reasons, the number of occupants on each pitch/in each unit may not exceed the stated capacity (no more than 1 to 7 people depending on the capacity of the pitch/unit in question) including infants. If it becomes apparent when you arrive that your party exceeds the maximum capacity of your pitch/unit, we reserve the right to refuse you access to the pitch/unit you have booked and we will not refund you the price of your stay.
For safety reasons, and unless otherwise authorised by email prior to your arrival and at your request, we cannot accept children under the age of 18 unless they are accompanied by their parents or grandparents for the entire duration of their stay with us.
➢ Payment methods accepted
You can pay for your stay in euros using the following payment methods:
cheque drawn on a French bank, French holiday vouchers, postal and money orders, bank or credit card, cheque drawn on a foreign bank
However, bookings made less than 30 days prior to your arrival date must be paid for by bank or credit card.
➢ Walk-in customers
If you arrive at the campsite without booking in advance you will be required to pay for at least the first night of your stay on arrival. Our reception staff will also ask you how long you intend to say. The balance of the price must be paid no later than the day before your departure so please make a note of our reception opening hours. No refund will be given if you leave earlier than indicated.
➢ Handover of keys
For rentals, arrival time is from 4:00 p.m.
For pitches, arrival time is from 2:00 p.m.
We will make every effort to accommodate your preferences depending on availability at the campsite on the date you arrive but cannot guarantee you a specific touring pitch or rental unit.
If you have any complaints about the cleanliness or general state of your rental unit, you should inform us within 24 hours of your arrival so that we can take the necessary action. We will not be able to act on complaints received after this 24-hour period.
We will have cleaned your accommodation before you arrive and you must leave it in the state in which you found it. If you fail to do this, we reserve the right to deduct cleaning costs from your security deposit as set out in section 1 of these Terms and Conditions.
➢ Late arrival/early departure
If you arrive later or leave earlier than the dates specified on your booking confirmation, you will still have to pay for all of your stay. You will not be able to claim a refund for any time you do not spend at the campsite.
We are happy to accept dogs and cats on site with the exception of category 1 dogs (also known as ‘attack dogs’) and category 2 dogs (also known as ‘guard and defence dogs’) within the meaning of French Law No. 99-5 of 6 January 1999. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times when on site. Please respect the campsite by cleaning up after your pets. When you arrive on site, you will be asked to present your pet’s health passport including evidence of any mandatory vaccinations, in particular an anti-rabies vaccination. You must also be able to show us your pet’s microchip or tattoo certificate and a third-party liability insurance certificate. Campsite rules
Throughout your stay at the campsite you must follow the campsite rules. You will find a copy of these rules on display at reception but we would be pleased to email you a copy of them if you wish.
➢ Image rights
You may find that we take photographs and/or videos on the campsite for activity and/or publicity purposes during your stay. These photos/videos may show you or the other people in your party. When you pay the balance of the price of your stay, we assume that you are also giving us your consent to use any photos and/or videos in which you or the other people in your party appear for the purposes set out above and for a period of 10 years. If you do not wish us to use any photographs or videos in which you or your party appear for these purposes you must notify us in writing by letter, email or other ‘durable medium’.
➢ Non-availability of certain services
Some of the services and facilities we offer (e.g. swimming pool, restaurant, activities, entertainment, etc.) may not be available all year round, in particular due to weather conditions or other cases of force majeure, and may not operate in all seasons. They may therefore be temporarily unavailable during all or part of your stay.
We will do everything we can to let you know about any works or alterations that will be carried out during your stay.
➢ Termination of the booking contract due to non-performance by you
The booking contract will be terminated automatically in case of any one of the following events:
• If you and/or another person in your party repeatedly fail to follow the campsite rules. Repeated failure means a second failure occurring after you have received an initial warning by email reminding you to follow the campsite rules. In such a case you must leave your pitch/unit accommodation within 3 hours of the termination of your booking contract as notified by email and we will not refund any part of the price of your stay.
• If you fail to arrive at the campsite within 24 hours of your arrival date/time and have not informed us when you will be arriving and the reason for the delay. We are free to rebook your pitch/unit at the end of this 24-hour period if we have been unable to contact you using the contact details you gave us when you booked your holiday. In such a case we will retain any money you have paid to us and no refund will be made.
You can ask to change the dates and/or details (type of accommodation) of your stay at our campsite as long as we receive your request by email at least 21 days before your arrival date.
In such a case, you must book another stay at our campsite in the same season as your original booking subject to availability and at the applicable rates. You may only change your initial booking once. If you are unable to honour your rearranged booking, your stay will be deemed cancelled and we will retain any money you have paid to us.
If the price of the rearranged stay is greater than that of the initial booking, you must pay us the difference no later than 30 days before your rearranged arrival date. Failing this, the rearranged stay will be deemed cancelled and the terms of cancellation set out above will apply. If the price of the rearranged stay is lower than that of the initial booking, we will keep the difference in price as compensation for the loss suffered as a result of the change.
➢ Cancellation by you
If you wish to cancel your booking, you must notify us in writing (email, registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, etc.).
• If we receive your email/letter more than 30 days before your arrival date, we will retain your deposit, the admin charge and any holiday cancellation insurance premium you paid at the time of booking.
• If we receive your email/letter between the 30th and the 15th day before your arrival date, we will retain your deposit, the admin charge and any holiday cancellation insurance premium you paid at the time of booking. We will refund you the balance of the price of your stay in the form of a credit note that you can use for a future stay at our campsite and which you must book for the same season as the cancelled stay or the following season. If you booked your stay less than 30 days before your arrival date, and we receive your
cancellation email/letter 15 days or more before this arrival date, we will retain your deposit, the admin charge and any holiday cancellation insurance premium you paid at the time of booking. We will refund you the balance in the form of a credit note that you can use for a future stay at our campsite and which you must book for the same season as the cancelled stay or the following season.
• If we receive your email/letter less than 15 days before your arrival date, we will retain any money you have paid us.
To make sure that you are covered in case of cancellation, we strongly advise you to take out our holiday cancellation insurance at the time of booking.
Exceptions to the conditions set out above:
• If you have to cancel because you live in an area which is subject, on your arrival date, to lockdown measures that prevent residents from travelling in order to avoid the propagation of Covid-19, we will retain your deposit, the admin charge and any holiday cancellation insurance premium you paid at the time of booking. We will refund the balance in the form of a credit note that you can use for a future holiday at our site and which you must book for the same season as the cancelled stay or the following season. This applies even if we receive your email/letter less than 15 days before your arrival date.
• If your cancellation is the result of a case of force majeure, that is to say an unforeseeable and unavoidable event beyond your control, we will refund any money you have paid to us.
➢ Cancellation by the campsite
If we are forced to cancel a booking that we have already confirmed we will inform you by email as quickly as possible. Any money you have already paid will be refunded to you in full no later than 30 days following notification cancellation.
If you have a complaint about your stay with us, you must make it to us in writing by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt within 20 days after the end of your stay.
