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.

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.
Great place to stop before crossing back to England
We have been regular visitors to this caravan site for over 20 years, sometimes staying for 1 or 2 nights. or sometimes for 7 or more nights. The site has consistently improved during those years. and in our opinion it is the best caravan site in France. The facilities are spotless, and the grounds and camping area are immaculately maintained
the staff were great, the food in the restaurant was fantastic. Pitches were a good size & everywhere was spotless.Will always use this site.
A lovely clean site .the staff were very helpfull.a very nice area,very handy for the channel tunnel and ferries.
Lovely campsite. Well placed for the ferry. Lots of grass on the spacious pitches. Swimming pool spotless and warm. Will visit again.
Very good site. Pitches are well maintained and the toilet facilities are very good. Would use this site again. One small point of criticism is that the WIFI access for one hour cards at least do not allow you to log in and out.
Lovely camp site, perfect for families, two restaurants, one of which was expensive but had an excellent menu. 30 minutes from Calais, so very good to use as transit but a very nice site to spend more time at. A short walk into Guines and 20 mins from the coast. If you want to top up with French wine, many supermarkets and wine suppliers.
We stay here on route to the South of France and again on route home to the Channel Tunnel, stayed on pitch and in Chateau and have never had a problem. Great camping site, the onsite Restaurant is a gem and is a must do! 'FOOD IS FAB' we have never had anything but first class food and service after numerous visits, the locals eat here which is the best endorsement. So book in advance it’s always very busy. The facilities are very good and have always been clean and tidy.
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.
