3rd time at this site. We love this site very much toilets are very well looked after this year was very wet & muddy but the toilets were still kept clean. Although this site is used for mainly stopovers it's still a great site for longer we usually go for 7 nights mainly due to the price 40 a night with electric we would love to spend longer but it's expensive & what with the ferry prices too. Great location in the small village of guines (fab market on a Friday )the people are very friendly & most speak good English if you struggle with French. Anyway the site close to ferries/tunnel is very welcoming well kept & friendly staff good bar & takeaway small shop for emergencies good pool although could be larger. All in all a very good site & would highly recommend although out of season when slightly cheaper

Stayed just one night at La Bien Assise on the way back from Germany. We didn't arrive until late in the evening and left just after 10:00, so didn't spend a great deal of time on the site. Positives - there is a good sized indoor pool and a good playground for the kids. Situation is really convenient for the tunnel. It was just 15 minutes drive to the tunnel from the campsite and convenient supermarkets to stock up at. The campsite was well laid out, with attractive pitches. Negatives - campsite was big and very busy, most people were transiting through the site. Pool only open between 10:00 and 18:00. Shop didn't stock much. Toilets had a shared male and female block and not clean, with no soap or paper. It was the most expensive of all the sites we stayed in over 16 nights and cost me over 50 Euros for a night with two kids. In retrospect I would have been better off camping overnight at the Europort, or in Kent.

Arrived at this site Saturday night before our ferry back to Dover on Sunday. No complaints at all as very nice, clean site. Set as if woodland camping with trees throughout the site. Nice bar and takeaway. We were sited by the road and thought it may be a problem but the road goes quiet at night.

Very busy with people arriving and leaving. Only 20 minutes from Calais so ideal. We will definitely use this site again. May have to book at peak time though. Also be aware that it is a quite expensive site.

Mixed emotions on this site.

A very easy place to find and well situated for the Ferry ports and tunnel.

Easy access even for large units up to the reception, friendly English speaking staff greeted us on arrival.

We used this a one night stop over to return to the UK, charged 35. 80 Euro ( big shock as 2 days earlier would have been 16 euro with ACSI card) and placed on a out of the way sloping pitch near the road.

Hook-up is stated as being 6a but we were only able to run our fridge until a visit to reception to explain the situation, not sure if they downgrade the ampage here but after getting back to our Van everything seemed fine.

Lots and lots of Statics, Tents and Glamping tents are here but these don't intrude if you are in a Tourer. A wander round the site (which is huge) finds massive grass pitches with plenty of room for an awning and your car, privacy provided by hedges with tall trees everywhere so plenty of shade too.

I counted 3 toilet blocks (not sure if there's more), my wife used one that she said was looking tired with not much hot water in the shower, very cold wet and generally miserable, Mine on the other hand seemed fine, fairly modern warm, clean with plenty of hot water.

The bar is a beautiful place to spend an evening, nice beer lovely food and reasonable in price.

There's also a restaurant that seems a little more 'upmarket' if you know what I mean.

Plenty for kids to do, nice pool, Tennis, Gym and playground if you are spending some time here.

To recap. A beautiful place to stay but be prepared to pay a premium!

A very pleasant and attractive looking site within easy reach of Calais. Very good for a rest after a long trip before returning to Britain. Not very close to shops if you have no alternative transport. They have a small shop, where you can order fresh croissants for morning, but not a great selection otherwise. Takeaway open in the evening, which we didn't try because we had supplies, and a restaurant, which was too expensive to try. Hookups are provided, and water is near the pitches. Elsan points are a bit further, but good and clean. Toilet blocks ok, but showers have no door to the outside, so no protection from insects. Staff very polite and helpful, but no-one around in the evening to enforce quiet, which was a bit of a problem. There's a small dog walk area near the gate, but not much offsite for a proper walk. All in all a great stopover, but for us, with a motorhome and large dogs, not where we'd want to be for a week.

Very well set up site (Castels & Camping chain) in nice surroundings and convenient for the tunnel.

Good points:

Some large pitches with hookup, water & drain

Nice bar & restaurant

Good facilities for children

Easy to find & very handy for the tunnel

Good English spoken

Good value with an ACSI card

Less good:

Wifi (charge) is limited to 300MB a day & we exceeded this by simply downloading 2 newspapers - no one told us it cuts you off if you exceed it. We paid for 2 days, had 12 hours & were not offered a refund.

Toilets and shower blocks (bar the heated one) looking tired & need some upgrading.

Showers very wet and difficult to clean due to lack of mats at door and floor mops.
