Camp Site Policies & Gite Terms & Conditions

We’re not big fans of rules and we try to have as few as possible. The ones that we do have are designed to give all our guests a fabulous stay at Le Poteau.  Our main thing is that we want everyone (us included) to have a fabulous, happy, relaxing time, so simply respect each other and the facilities, smile and say ‘hello’ to everyone you meet.  

Campsite Policy:

  • Our check-out is at 11:00 to allow access to new arrivals for our 13:00 check-in
  • Please park your car in one of the parking areas at the side of the campsite.
  • We love campfires and BBQs, but the dry weather in the Gers can make them a hazard.  Because of this, campfires aren’t allowed and we ask that all BBQs are kept off the ground.
  • Please keep to just one camping unit per pitch (a small extension tent is allowed for the kids if they want independence or you want peace!)
  • Please keep dogs on a lead when they’re not in the dog walking field and obviously, please clean up after them (we provide free bags for you).
  • One of the reasons we fell in love with Le Poteau was the peaceful serenity it offers to visitors, so please respect your neighbours and keep noise and music low, especially after 22:00.

Gites Terms and Conditions

Apologies in advance but these have to be quite formal!

  • All bookings are provisional until confirmed by e-mail and your deposit/full payment (if a late booking) received.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any booking we consider to be unsuitable for our property.
  • The payment of a 25% non-refundable deposit ensures reservation and is subject to acceptance of our terms and conditions. 
  • The balance is payable 28 days before the arrival date. If you are booking within 28 days of your arrival date the full amount is payable immediately.
  • Period of rental commences at 3:30 pm on day of arrival, and ends at 10.30am on day of departure. Alterations to arrival and departure times are by prior arrangement only.
