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.
