Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

We stay here for an overnight most years, pre or post Tunnel crossing, as it is very convenient. However we made a decision a few years ago to only use the site during the ACSI discount season.

This year we stayed on our way home, a week or so before they closed for the winter. The site was quite busy with tourers, but I was surprised to find that in the main facility block, only the heated facility was open, leaving 2 toilets and 3 showers in use, there were constant queues. We had been invited to choose our own pitch and had chosen a pitch near the facilities. However on further investigation, I found the facility next to the pool open, which has plenty of toilets and showers, and was very quiet. In similar circumstances, I would make a point of asking which blocks are open, I had assumed they would all be. Bearing in mind the still quite expensive price I was rather disappointed.

We stopped here for 1 night before coming home. We can see why Brits love this, as it is a large, tranquil and green site which very much seems to cater to its (mostly) British clientelle. Overnighters may not make full use of the facilities and could find it expensive. We paid 40 euros.

There were a few British holiday makers who were clearly there for a longer period and for those who want a taste of France without travelling too far and who are accustomed to the Caravan Club type set up this is ideal.

There is a covered pool; an extensive shop; a bar/snack bar in the British pub style; and access to a reasonable restaurant. We ate in the restaurant and found the food of a good standard.

Free WiFi is supposedly available for 35 minutes if you buy a drink in the bar. We tried this, but were unable to make a connection. With so many other campsites now offering good quality free WiFi over larger areas, we feel that this is something which should be addressed.

Washing facilities were excellent, with a heated enclosed area for those chillier days.

The site is within easy reach of the tunnel and ports and also of the Auchan in Coquelles for last minute shopping and fuel. Guines itself doesn't have a great deal. We had hoped to find somewhere to eat, but we assume that most people stay on site as there didn't seem to be anywhere in the village.

We used this site by default as the one we originally looked for seemed to have closed. For one night it was expensive and, although a lovely site, we are not sure we would use it again for a single night stop.

We last visited this site in 2008. It was then a 3 star site having been downgraded a few years earlier. We felt then that the site was ok but was let down badly by the awful food in the takeaway and bar. I said at the end of my review that I didnít think it would be long before Monsieur Le Camping would again be painting an extra star on his board outside the site. Well, the cheeky devil has only gone and painted 2 extra stars on his sign. In fact itís a brand new sign.

This site is now a 5 star site and it is well deserved. The pitches all look to be in good order. Site accommodation looks modern. Some of the toilet blocks are heated. In fact all the facilities now look very good indeed. The food in the takeaway is now improved and well worth the money. The whole place looks like a new site. I can now thoroughly recommend La Bien Assise not only for stopovers but for longer holidays as well.

Calais site only 10/15 mins away from Calais / channel tunnel

Stayed here for one night as used the tunnel crossing on route to Belgium, good communication, got there at 10:30 at night and pulled into a really long pitch, stayed hooked up so we could just leave in the morning and someone pulled in behind us later on so very big pitch.

Very efficient and professional

Toilets were ok not the best but had no hand wash which really annoys me.

Didn't see the pool or other amenities so can't comment.

Stayed August 2015, travelled with family

Reviewer: Dirksdonuts 9 reviews from this member

We have stayed at this site many times as a last stop over returning from Europe back to the UK

Sadly this time at 60 euros for a family of 4 where the children are 9 & 13 for 12 hours I feel they have pushed the prices far too high. You can't really fault the site as it is a very transient site with people coming and going during the early hours. The facilities are spotless and you never queue for showers etc.

Price wise it's very expensive.

Great for the location and convenience of both the tunnel and the ferry.

Large campsite 10km south of Calais, excellent for a stopover before or after the ferry or tunnel. A large number of tourist pitches as well as some statics, both the siteís own and outside holiday firmsí. Good toilet facilities, clean and well maintained. Site has cafť / bar and takeaway (nice pizzas) as well as a shop, where bread and croissants can be ordered. There is a play area with fitness equipment as well. There is also a traditional restaurant attached to the site. We would certainly use again and hope to return for a longer stay in the future.
