This is a reminder that your caravan must be equipped with a valid technical certificate of technical control (check) for the gas installation. This control, valid for a 5 year period, can be carried out, for example, by the Treyvaud Caravan Company in Avenches; who is authorized to provide this certificate. A copy of the certificate must be provided to the campsite’s reception desk.
A gas-powered caravan’s outside installations must also be controlled (checked).
Dog owners are advised to check in at the reception desk and pay the appropriate fee (dog tax) at the beginning of the season. A control will be made to confirm is your dog has been declared.
Dogs and cats must be kept on a lead and are prohibited in the swimming areas, beaches and sanitary facilities.
Only one standard-sized lock box/case is allowed per plot.
Article 9 of the Campsite Rules and Regulations must be applied in all campsite plots/places. A maximum of 11 slabs may be laid.
Throughout the entire campsite, slabs must be removed and stacked on pallets for winter storage.
Perforated carpeting and perforated plastic slabs are authorized for use on the ground. Waterproof under-flooring mats and under-coatings (such as plastic sheeting and tarpaulins) are prohibited.
Flag Poles/Antennas/Satellite Dishes/Similar Equipment and Accessories
These items are to be installed directly on to the caravan; digging into the ground for installation of such items is prohibited.
Campsite Rules and Regulations
The Campsite Rules and Regulations are posted on the campsite’s information boards and at the port. They are also available at the reception desk.
Winter Storage of Caravans
For all campers
Off-season, only your caravan can remain on the campsite (without anything underneath). Your lock box and/or any flooring are to be stored on pallets; in accordance with guidance of the campsite’s staff.
Lessees who completely remove their caravan from the premises in the winter themselves, are requested to inform the reception desk before 31 October. The wintering fee will be returned to them. In event of caravan removal, the plot must be cleared of all objects (lock box, flooring, etc.).
Awnings, flooring and all other installations must be dismantled by 31 October and placed on a pallet. The plot must be mowed and cleaned.
As usual, caravans are moved according to the chart posted at the reception desk. Further information and advice are available from our staff.

When requested by lessee, we shall move your caravan in the autumn, as well as in the spring, following the payment of the fixed fee of CHF 30.00 (excluding VAT), for each move (appointment date to be confirmed at the reception desk). A waiver must be signed by the lessee, prior to the caravan being moved. In this case, your caravan must be ready to move smoothly; the tires must be inflated and the stands should be lifted away from the ground. If these conditions are not met, we will not move your caravan and you shall be asked to undertake the move yourself. If your caravan is not yet moved by 6 October 2017, we will move it at your own risk and collect a tax (fee), according to the hourly rate.
If you sell your caravan, the caravan will go in the winter storage area, in the passage zone or in the parking lot.
The gates are locked from 22.00 hours to 07.00 hours throughout the year.
Those who have gate key cards can open the gates from 07.00 hours to 22.00 hours.
Parking Authorization Badges/Cards
The new parking authorization badges/cards have proven to be completely satisfactory. You are requested to continue to display the badge/card prominently behind the front windshield, on the left-hand side. Thank you in advance.
During periodic checks, owners of vehicles without the parking badge/card, or that of the previous year, will be asked to pay the daily parking fee at the reception desk.
The license plate of a vehicle without an authorized parking badge/card will be noted and registered.
Waste Disposal/Recycling Center

New: a shower for dogs is now available at the port.
