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.

We have stayed twice on this site but would only recommend as a transit one. Ideal for a stop over on the way in or out of France. Like most other comments we found it rather expensive, the toilets are in need of up-dating although cleaned twice a day they still looked grubby. Will probably use again, but only as a stop-over.
The best site I have ever stayed at; site spotless, toilets spotless, wonderful food at the restaurant, town within walking distance and Calais only a short drive away.
A fairly large site ideally close to ferry and tunnel terminals. Pitches were on grass and flat.
Electric points were a mixture of standard and continental sockets.
Shower/toilet facilities were a little tired but adequate. (Free hot water). One facilities block had no signs so not sure if male, female or unisex which was a bit confusing.
Restaurant, bar and shop on site as well as indoor pool. Motorhome service point and chemical disposal point.
The Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. A very convenient site for quick access to the ferry. We stayed for one night on our way to the UK. Ideal! Beautifully kept pitches and excellent facilities.
Bit more expensive as the ACSI discount had expired, but then the facilities on site are pretty good. The site is well maintained, and landcaped,water and electricity points easily accessible. We used the pub/cafe, food was cheap and fair/good quality and quantity. There is a proper restaurant site for which i had great reports. The site is handy for Calais - Ferry, Tunnel, Hypermarkets etc. Clearly very much in use as a stop over from/to France as the vast majority of number plates were GB. Would use this sit again. Though preferably during an ACSI applicable period. Bread etc available on order, small shop with essentials, pool, table tennis, tennis etc etc, toilets and showers etc were excellent. Reception very helpful, stamps - posting cards for you, wifi is a bit of a pain, signal was poor for our phones/ipad - but fine for the netbook, also for short stays - if you pay for 12 hours the clock starts ticking the minute u log in and keeps running for the 12 hours. 9/10 very good site
On a small pitch with a large van despite booking nearly a month in advance. The pitch flooded when it rained.
The noise at night was definitely unacceptable with people staying in the rental tents and statics being particularly noisy.
It was useful for the ferry, but will not be returning as it was expensive, and not very helpful staff.
Only good thing is handy stopover as close to Calais. Charged more than other sites for daily tourist tax. Staff could be more friendly - not one smiled. Better sites available at cheaper rates. Close to busy road with many noisy lorries passing.
A lovely well kept site with good clean toilet facilities in close proximity to Calais. Helpful friendly staff. Allocated pitch, some with trees. Charge for wifi but 30mins free in bar with a purchase. Activities for all ages including heated pool.
Stayed for 3 nights coming back from Holland. Very good location. Found a very good vet in nearby Ardres to get the dog sorted before coming home.
This was our last campsite visited in our motorhome before returning home to the UK. We received an excellent welcome, with all the information one could need. The site is obviously ideal for a Calais crossing, although we crossed from Dunquerque. It is a nicely set out site with large pitches and various entertainments. The on-site cafe and adjacent restaurant (where we ate - very good) are excellent features, especially for motorhomers.
