Because it is a question often asked, we explain to you what the tourist tax is used for.

In the majority of countries, the state asks tourism professionals to charge holidaymakers and pay them a tourist tax. This is a certain amount, applied to each adult aged 18 and over. In France, the amount of this tax varies according to the Communes or the Community of Communes which collect it.

What is it for? (source Wikipedia)

Its amount is generally intended either to support the additional costs linked to tourism or to allow the development of tourism. The two are often linked today. It often makes it possible to finance the costs incurred by tourism, in particular the financing of the local tourist organization in varying proportions (tourist offices and documentation, for example ..).

The application in our Community of Communes and our campsite

Our Community of Communes is the CCVS: Community of Communes of Ventoux Sud. It includes a large part of the South-East of Ventoux, namely the municipalities of Villes-sur-Auzon, Sault, Blauvac, Mormoiron, Méthamis, Monieux, Aurel, Ferrassières, Saint-Christol … Do not hesitate to find the detail on http://ccvs84.fr/accueil.html.

For camping pitches, all adults aged 18 and over are liable to the tourist tax, in addition to the base rate.

For rentals, the tourist tax is included in the rental price, with an average calculation of two adults per rental.

There is also often an environmental tax (to offset the additional cost of managing household waste, for example). We are fortunate that, for the moment, our Community of Communes does not impose it on us.

Because the holidays are also a good time to get together with several families and friends, it is important to be able to offer you solutions. By dint of experience and part of the leitmotif of our campsite, we want everyone to be satisfied by this reunion. It is therefore important to talk about it together.

Camping Les Verguettes is a small, quiet, family campsite. We, the owners of the campsite, work intensely to satisfy you and we feel directly concerned by the success of your holidays. We are hiring 3 employees for the season, who also do their utmost for your welcome and the cleanliness of the campsite. It’s a small, highly motivated team … but it’s not SuperMan!

Our campsite’s credo is to invite you to relax and explore this beautiful region, but also to take advantage of the campsite’s playg and relaxation facilities, all together and in harmony. This is why we organize activities a few afternoons and 1 evening per week in summer, to allow you to organize your holidays at your own pace.

It is therefore the same for groups. We particularly want to allow you to share your happiness, but while respecting the peace and serenity of the place.

Thus, we are used to welcoming you with family or in small groups of friends or sportsmen. For this, it is essential to contact us before so that we can find you the best spot! If you want to be side by side, or a bit apart, we will do our best to accommodate your request. This is also why we do not charge for asking for side-by-side places or certain preferred places for our regulars. Above all, your well-being matters!

So that this well-being is shared by all holidaymakers on the campsite, we expressly ask you to respect the campsite rules:

  • The noise must be controlled, to respect your neighbors (no loud music, no shouting ..). After 10 p.m., we ask you to be careful to reduce noise, and after 11 p.m., to be really calm, even in a group.
  • The sanitary facilities and games (areas, swimming pools) are shared by all, and not only by a group. It’s always great to meet new people and share your games and experiences, that’s the spirit of camping!
  • We leave one of our terraces with tables and chairs at your disposal (until 11:30 p.m. in high season, 10 p.m. in low season), in the common area of ​​the campsite, relatively far from the pitches. Do not hesitate to find yourself in this dedicated space to share your group moments, rather than regrouping on a location, which could disturb your neighbors.
  • The campsite is reserved for holidaymakers from the campsite. Thus, people outside the campsite are not included in these privileged accesses.

We will be happy to receive you in small groups, with respect for all. But, if you come to party the night away, there is surely a better place than our campsite! Looking forward!

For weddings:

It is the joy of celebrating Love through weddings organized in the surrounding halls. It’s a magical moment! Guests can come and stay at the campsite and thus enjoy the facilities between two festivities.

But be careful, you have to know the rules of campsites in general. Camping is not just impersonal overnight accommodation like a hotel, etc. it is a state of mind and we like to be able to share it with you.

Remember that rentals with sanitary facilities are rentable for a minimum of 2 nights and that departure is at 10 a.m. at the latest. For the day after a party it can get early but you book with full knowledge of the facts, and we don’t differentiate between vacationers and wedding guests, everyone is welcome. So, it is often wise to book the 2 nights of Saturday and Sunday, just to sleep in on Sunday morning or to enjoy the pool after the party! I’m saying that, I’m saying nothing :) but we only want your happiness with regard to the schedules to be respected.

We also remind you that the portal for vehicles closes at 10 p.m. in the evening. Our car park at the entrance of the campsite allows you to park when you arrive after the party and to walk to your accommodation, in silence.

See you soon !

A question that comes up often is: “And in winter, what do you do?

In fact, we open the camping pitches and rental accommodation (pods, lodges, mobile homes, chalets) in spring and summer and we close in mid-autumn and in winter. But why ?

  1. Because the water pipe installations are not insulated from frost, and here the winter is nice but cold :)
  2. Because the maintenance of green spaces requires a lot of time and free access to the pitches
  3. Because we take the opportunity to do improvement and repair work for the following year
  4. Because we take vacations and enjoy our children!
  5. Because the winter, the region is calm, there are few people and we could not pay the basic charges not being sure to have people .. economic reality, when you catch up with us!

But in this winter 2020-2021, a great novelty! PREMIUM COTTAGES are open! “Ah yes, but why? You said that ..”

The Premium Cottages are small “cinder block” houses whose pipes and walls are insulated in the same way as a dwelling house. Unlike mobile homes, it is quick and easy to put on the heating without wasting energy. The Cottages have dedicated access for the winter, which allows us to continue our work on the campsite without disturbing holidaymakers in the cottages.

Services in winter are reduced, as are the rental prices of the cottages: no swimming pool and common areas, no reception except on your arrival / departure and in case of emergency or questions (we are still in the process of work in the campsite, you can easily find us).

AND ESPECIALLY: our little corner of Provence is magnificent in winter, it’s a whole different style. The weather is generally very nice, with a clear blue sky, and it is very cool in the morning and good in the afternoon. In autumn, the colors of the vines are marvelous, the trees rarely lose their leaves, life is in slow motion conducive to walks and discoveries. In winter, Mont Ventoux is often snowy, you can wear a t-shirt in the plain and put on your winter clothes and snow shoes at the top of the Ventoux. We loooove it!

During this period, the roads are calm, the cyclists are few and happy, the visitors have time, do not hesitate to come and test!
