Is the campsite subject to flooding?

The campsite has been in a flood zone since the tragic events in Vaison-la-Romaine on 22 September 1992, which fortunately we were spared from. Following these floods, safety standards for campsites in at-risk areas were tightened, and we were authorised to continue operating as a campsite. Since then, we have been inspected every three years by the prefectural safety commission, which authorises us to have campers. If pitches are sometimes flooded, this is because they are usually subject to a period of drought lasting several months, followed by summer storms (usually after 15 August). The ground is too dry and unable to absorb the large quantity of rain that falls in a short space of time (in general, a summer storm lasts less than two hours).
