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.

Reception excellent, could even choose our own pitch. Last night of the season and it was very busy. The site restaraunt I thought was cold value for an evening meal of 3 courses from the base set menu at just under 20 euros per person, and I have to say our meals were of excellent quality. Some of the facilities may need an update, but they were far from the worst we encountered. Its so close to both the main ports and tunnel, that I dont think I would use it for other than an overnight stop.
The price charged out of season is high given the very limited facilities available. The showers were locked after our first night, only one toilet block was open.
Useful site for access to ferries and restaurant good.
We used this site as a stop over, using the vets in Ardres before travelling home on the eurotunnel the next day. For this it was very convenient. It has people moving on and off it all the time clearly doing the same thing. The facilities are good and the showers clean but it has a 'stopover' feeling to it. It is set in nice grounds which are well kept. It is grass pitches and in the main level although some were slightly sloping and some motorhomes were on level chocks. There is a swimming pool but we didn't use this. Appears to be kid friendly. We used the vets in Ardres and this site was excellent location for this - just 5 minutes down the road. These vets were also excellent, we booked them before we left the UK but other English people in the vets were also staying at this site and the site had rung and booked them into the Vets.
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.
perfect spot for overnight after/prior channel crossing. excellent restaurant. good pitches which are allocated - you do not choose. some in sun some shade. small pool always full of kids. can get very busy on site. i will always return as ideal for 1 night stopover.
Great campsite with lovely large pitches .resturant food very good and not overpriced
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.
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
12kms from Eurotunnel and 19kms from the ferry makes this a very convenient site to stay – and it’s a great site into the bargain. We arrived ‘on spec’ at about 2pm, checking in was very efficient and we were shown to our pitch. The site is large and very well laid out with large grassy pitches and it seemed as if they kept the one-nighters like us near the entrance which is a good idea so we didn’t disturb the long term stays. There are 3 shower/wc blocks (not unisex), at least one of which is heated. I used an unheated block and it was reasonably clean but certainly not up to 5 star standard, which is what the site claims to be. Other amenities include a children’s playground, 5 adult outdoor fitness apparatuses, indoor swimming pool with sliding roof & small waterslide, table tennis table, Snack bar, Take away, Bread ordering facility, small shop and restaurant. We opted to used the snack bar – limited menu - food was ok but we were impressed by the very hardworking man who was the barman and waiter.
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.
