    Le Châtelard washes the campers’ clothes that are machine washable. Intimate garments are not washed by Le Châtelard. Ironing service is not provided; however, campers learn to press their own clothes. Dry cleaning service is not included. Campers who wish for this service will pay it from their personal account, Le Châtelard will only deliver and collect the clothing. Since dry cleaning service is very expensive, it is recommended that campers bring very few clothes which will require this service.

    Please consider temperature variations during the day in the mountains (between 12°C and 25°C) this is why we recommend a Summer jacket.
