Camping La Bien-Assise issituated close to the centre of Guînes, a village not far from Calais. The castle camping site is therefore popular with British tourists for whom this is the first (or last) stopover in France. The camping site is located in an attractive, rather flat, rural area. The grounds are dominated by large trees and look very attractive. The rural setting will give you an immediate French holiday feeling, while the coast of the English Channel is not far away.
Camping site and sanitary facilities
There are 46 mobile homes on the camping site which are fitted with all amenities. There are also four wooden, fully furnished rental holiday cottages. Other camping guests have access to good and modern sanitary facilities in the service building.
Because camping La Bien-Assise is not directly situated on the sea, a lake or river, it has a covered swimming pool with large water slide. However, at a distance of only 16 km, you will find Escalles and Cap Blanc-Nez, where you can spend the day on the beach. Wimereux and Sangatte are located at similar distances.
On the grounds you will also find the three-star hotel L’auberge du Colombier, located in a small 19th century castle, as well as the restaurant La Ferme Gourmande. The restaurant serves classic French dishes, also on the terrace when the weather allows it. From here you have a view of the castle's dovecote. There is a cosy bar near the reception (with a small library).
As is the case at most camping sites, camping La Bien-Assise also has its own small shop. Are you looking for a larger assortment? In Guînes itself there is a variety of supermarkets and typical French shops.

Great place to stop before crossing back to England
Excellent site with good facilities. We stayed a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely use it again. Only 15 minutes or so from the channel tunnel, so very convenient
We use this site a lot as a first or last stop in Europe. Pleasant, well run and well maintained site with small pool and with an excellent restaurant adjacent. There are cycle and walking routes available from reception. Basic shop.
Have stayed here many times at the start and end of touring holidays to France and beyond. Campground is in a lovely setting with easy access to pitches. Pitches are of a good size but not well defined is some cases creating problems sometimes with people not respecting your space. Unless you have paid for a serviced pitch water points appear to be scarce. Toilet facilities disappointing for a 5 star site. Overall though very good and I am sure we will stay there again.
Big grass pitches, We paid extra for water & drainage - but it was expensive. Good takeaway & bar food in a nice setting. French restaurant by the chateau is excellent. 4 toilet/shower blocks all spotless with separate ladies/gents toilets with soap & toilet rolls (not usually the case we have found in France !) Shop very expensive. Good stop off for Calais & channel tunnel.
Great campsite, nice restaurant, staff very helpful. Our pitch was a little soft after some rain, had to use mats under wheels to help manoeuvring the motorhome. Easy walk into town. Large supermarket approx 20 min walk. Ideal for visiting local vets, site happy to help organise. Would visit again.
This was a great campsite after getting off the ferry from Calais. It was about 20minutes away from Calais and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There was cycling and walking maps available. There is a nice small village nearby (although shops and attractions are closed on the weekend).
There is a lovely restaurant where we had a vey nice meal on site. The site is spacious, nicely maintained (toilets were average but clean) and quiet. The other campers were friendly as well. We stayed here two nights and enjoyed it.
Not a bad site if you are in need of one near Calais. The welcome was ok, the facilities were ok. The pitch was rather gloomy and there were a lot of pitches with quite large trees closeby - great in the heat but maybe not as good otherwise. There is quite a major roundabout by the entrance to the site and I was conscious of heavy goods vehicles on it quite early in the morning. All in all ok however the price for a night (ACSI card rate) there are cheaper and better around as far as we are concerned.
This is our regular (10 years) arrival and departure site but we always stay a few nights as it is a really good site and very well priced through ACSI, especially given its covenience for the channel crossing. Great place and super people.
The staff here were very friendly and helpul, the swimming pool was lovely with a fun outdoor water slide, very convenient for Calais approx 15 minute drive to the Eurotunnel with two supermarkets within a few minutes drive & although we didn't try it the restaurant & menu looked really good. Quiet convenient location.
