The purpose of these general conditions of sale is to govern the contractual relationship regarding the sale of individual stays between the company CAMPAR and its customers, and to set their respective obligations. The fact that CAMPAR do not take advantage of any provisions in the general conditions may not be taken as a waiver on their part. Any booking implies Customers’ unreserved application and full acceptance of the general conditions, which take precedence over any other document.

1 – RESERVATIONS AND RULES FOR STAYS
• Details of the services provided during our trips and stays are indicated on our website, www.lescriques.com. Starting on September 19th 2023, you can view current prices on this website and receive personalised assistance by contacting our team on +33 (0) 4 68 81 12 73. Customers can make use of the online or printed catalogue, or obtain descriptions of our services from our booking agents on site, by telephone or email. Customers themselves decide on the services they want when booking. Customers acknowledge that they are aware of the content of services, the destination and booking procedures, and all the characteristics of stays and accommodation. They acknowledge that they have requested and obtained all the information required for making bookings in full awareness of the facts. Customers are responsible for their choice of booking and its suitability for their needs, and CRIQUES DE PORTEILS mays thus not be held responsible. The booking is deemed to have been accepted by customers at the end of the booking process. This process ends when CRIQUES DE PORTEILS have received the first down payment.
• A booking becomes effective solely with the agreement of the camping, after receipt of the down payment, and of either the duly completed and signed booking contract or the acceptance of the general conditions of sale with online bookings.
• Bookings are not binding upon CRIQUES DE PORTEILS unless the company has accepted them ; CRIQUES DE PORTEILS are free to do so or to refuse, depending on availability and more generally on any circumstances that could interfere with normal performance regarding the booking made. In particular, CRIQUES DE PORTEILS offer family stays in the traditional sense, and accommodation is specifically designed for this purpose. CRIQUES DE PORTEILS thus reserve the right to refuse any booking that goes against this principle or seeks to distort it. • Subject to availability for the dates required, you can book a stay according to the procedures indicated previously.
• Your registration must be accompanied by a first down payment of 100 € for camping and 200 € for rentals including VAT, and must reach us no later than 7 days after you have made the booking. This will only become final when your down payment has been registered. The balance of the price must be paid no later than 30 days before your arrival date. Thus:
***With bookings made more than 30 days before the start of the stay: a down payment of the services booked must be paid when the booking for the camping is made. The balance must be paid no later than 30 days before the start date of the stay in the camping.
***With bookings made less than 30 days before the start date of the stay: the entire payment must be made when the booking for the camping is made.
NB: After these deadlines, if we have not received your down payment or balance, we will consider your booking to be cancelled, and we will offer the corresponding services for sale again. In addition, cancellation conditions will apply.
On receipt of your down payment, a confirmation of your stay will be sent to you indicating the balance still to be paid. Each payment must be accompanied by the dossier reference shown in this confirmation.
Anyone who arrives at the stay venue without having paid the remaining balance beforehand will be refused entry. With bookings made less than 30 days before departure, Customers must pay for the entire stay when booking. The date on which such bookings take place does not always make it possible to send you confirmation. You will then be deemed to have accepted all the information contained in the general conditions of sale or made known to you orally.
For safety reasons, the number of people who turn up for rental stays may under no circumstances exceed the number of places in the accommodation allocated or the number of people indicated in the contract. If the accommodation is over-occupied, i.e. the number of people exceeds the standard occupation capacity, supplementary charges may apply, which vary depending on the site and period. Prices are indicated at the time of booking.
• NB: No refunds will be made for any stays that are curtailed, interrupted or broken off (late arrival, early departure) or any unused services.
