Campsite La Bien Assise *****

General information
Guide price €36.20

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.

Swimming pool

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.

Hotel/Restaurant

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).

Shop

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.

Travelling party: Single

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.

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.

Travelling party: Seniors

I can't for the life of me think what makes this campsite 5* - I've stayed at better 2* sites. Given that the pitches are large, they are not very well screened and since this is primarily a 'transit camp' for people arriving off or leaving on the ferries, it is noisy at night. The toilets are cleaned regularly and some do have seats, but the blocks are dilapidated and in urgent need of refurbishment. The food at the on-site Restaurant, La Ferme Gourmande is indifferent and expensive; indeed the main gripe is the exorbitant price charged for the pitch itself is just not worth it.

Travelling party: Couple

Couple in motorhome, regular visitors, second time this year, been coming here nearly 10 years, always stay here to visit the vets and to do last minute shopping. Having spent a month touring Europe, yet again we return to La Bien Assise and agree it continues to be one of the nicest sites we have stayed on. A pleasure to walk around. Large grass pitches, overlooking countryside. However I have the same 2 moans each time we stay. The outdated sanitary block (2 star at best, could only get a cold shower today, no soap in the dispenser), and the expensive wi-fi if you are on a short stay (why can't you log on and off? Other sites do). Shop, bar and takeaway closed 2 weeks before site closes but is still very busy. More importantly is a sign in the office, 'ACSI Card will NOT be accepted from 2016.' I feel our love affair is coming to an end.

Travelling party: Young couple

We stayed here a year ago and didn't have a great time but the handy location, 15 minutes from the Eurotunnel terminal, drew us back again. Unfortunately we encountered exactly the same problems as before. The maze of showers and sinks are cold, dirty and old. Certainly a long way from the 5-star facilities that the site claims to have. In fact, these were the worst toilet blocks of all the 7 sites on our trip. The pitches themselves were great, grassy, marked with hedges, plenty of water points etc. however, as with our last visit, we were kept awake at night by loutish behaviour from other campers. I suppose the site suffers as a result of its easy-to-get-to location from England but a fair few of the 'campers', particularly in the numerous Eurocamp tents, were just there to get very drunk on cheap drink. I've seldom felt so ashamed to be British. We won't be back again.

Had stayed here before but was disappointed this time (May20-22). Grass and overhanging branches on pitch needed attention.
After we bought drinks at the bar we were told the free wifi was not available! Wouldn't have bought drinks if we'd known!

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.

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.

Just the usual overnighter last night. Friendly staff and terrific meal in the restaurant, however the sanitary facilities have changed little since 1999 which is strange given the move to 5 star rating. Whilst other aspects are important for longer stays sanitaries are top priority for however long the stay.
Going through showers/toilet areas to wash up is not acceptable these days.
The night before we stayed in a 2 star site which had far superior sanitary facilities.

Travelling party: Couple

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.
