2nd time I've stated here. Looking for a different site but ended up here. Nice tidy site; clean showers &toilets;grassy pitches with tree shade. Not far from Calais/shopping Europe (if you like those places)restaurant on site but only bought a pack of frites from the takeaway. (don't forget to order your bread (bagette) ready for the next day otherwise its about 1mile walk into the small town where's they have a 'spar' & a few other shops. I'd stay there again. Walk around the site and look at the ready pitched 'tents'
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 – only 16€ with ACSI (plus taxes). 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.
I have just stayed here for one night booked through the caravan club, whilst I have used this site several times over the previous years as somewhere to stop to get a good nights sleep, I will question doing so again. If you just want a pitch it's fine, but don't even think about a pint of the cold stuff, it was a whopping €5 a pint, this is way above other sites, if you want a croc Monsieur to celebrate then its another € 6 for a cheese toastie, now I understand that they have to make a profit but this year it seems excessive. We stayed at lots of other sites over our holiday and nobody charged anything like this, maybe they feel they have to cash in on the Calais site being closed but be warned, boycott these excessive charges and they may get the message.
We have used this site now 3 times when visiting France as a stop over, excellent facilities, plenty of space on the pitches, we stayed for one night on way into France & 2 nights on exit from France, some pitches are a bit uneven & need chocks to level caravan etc. We used what they called a comfort pitch, with water & drainage on site, the only drawback with the drainage was that water won't run uphill to the drain, the other drawback was that for a 5 star? site, they only had 6 amp electric, so you had to be careful what you used otherwise you had to wait for someone to come & reset the tripped out fuse (luckily we only did this once & was able to reset it ourselves as door to fuse box was unlocked)all in all I would highly recommend this site, but be careful what electrical equipment you use
We stayed at this site a few years back, so decided again to stay the night before we went through the tunnel - which is about 30 minutes away. Excellent site, well kept with pitches not too crowded together, some were a little sloped so you may need chocks. Restaurant very good, if pricey, and snack bar offers take away as well as eat-in smaller meals. Toilets clean, and there is a heated block for disabled showers, wash basins and toilets. Town can be reached with a short walk and there are several supermarkets, including a Carrefour the other end of the D231, going out of town. Chemical toilet disposal by toilet block near reception. Swimming pool, lots of kid's play equipment as well as adult 'work out' equipment. Advise booking as it does get full.
A fabulous site - we stay here all the time en-route to the rest of France as its just 10 mins from the tunnel, although with the great facilities it has, it really deserves a longer stay. Beautifully kept, always immaculate with the feeling of a parkland - loads of mature trees. Although it has loads of facilities for families and we are a couple who prefer a quieter site, we never have a problem as there are always quiet corners and the staff are very helpful if you say you prefer a quiet spot. Great restaurant (it also has a take away if you prefer 'and chips' type food) with very reasonable prices and delicious French food. Pitches are a little pricey in high season (but aren't most places. ), but we always go out of season and use our ACSI card, so very good value for us.
