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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
Easy to get to from Calais. Excellent swimming pool and bar on site. Good relaxed atmosphere.
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.
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 clean site .the staff were very helpfull.a very nice area,very handy for the channel tunnel and ferries.
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.
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.
