The registration fee does not include the camping fee:

Reservation of camping pitches is not necessary (except for chalets and mobile homes where availability is limited).

To receive a 5% discount on chalets and mobihomes, please enter the code “OCF24L” on your booking.

Please note: due to the large number of participants, Gervanne Camping is not able to allocate a pitch per family or group. Pitches will therefore have to be shared to accommodate everyone.

  • 8,70 € per person per night (+ tourist tax of 0,61 €).
  • 4,10 € per night for children from 5 to 12 years old.
