This was my first camping trip along with my husband and 9yr old.

Arrived at 2am so had to sleep in car and wait until office opened at 9am. Quite easy to find. Shown to adequate pitch amongst tourers and statics, close enough to toilet blocks etc.

Showers/toilets were relatively clean though a little dated (not a fan of spiders crawling overhead), some such as the individual cubicles by the pool had sections of roof missing but the wonderful powerful and warm shower made up for this.

Our daughter loved the swimming pool (though the flume and splash pool were icy cold) which was kept covered due to the time of year - seats around pools were constantly wet from the condensation, ping-pong and crazy golf. Park was a bit too young for her but had two swings near the shop.

Didn't make use of the shop or bar so can't comment on this - 15min walk took us into village where we found a lovely bakery and other shops for provisions. 15min drive to Calais to access shopping mall with large Carrfore stocking gas etc. If you don't do anything else on holiday go down to Calais beach and have one of the waffle ice creams with 3 flavours - excellent value for money,

Quite a few dogs on site and large enough to walk them around, wasn't aware of any dog mess etc.

Caravans seemed adequately spaced.

Now have a caravan and would def consider stopping off here again.

An attractive site, very close to Calais. The site is in a rural location and has a lovely feel to the place. It appears to be generally used by British holiday makers using this as a stop over before catching the ferry, but would be perfectly pleasant for a longer stay. There is lots to do in the area, good shopping, lovely beaches and countryside. The site is very well equipped with a bar, restaurant and take away, The grounds are clean, tidy and well maintained. The pitches are of a good size and generally level. There is lots to do for the children, such as a large play area, one for small children and one for older children. The pool is clean and warm, although the slide and slide pool was not heated, the kids did not seem to notice and enjoyed the slide. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We used this site for 2 night stop over and would definitely use again.

Being August and arriving late from the tunnel I had pre-booked for one night. An expensive process as it was peak tarrif and they charge a booking fee as well. However, we were well placed for an early start the following morning which is what we wanted. The site access is good and the pitches generous enough - certainly for a night halt which is what a large number of felow campers use it for. We ate in the restaurant next door which was delicious and although our kids have long fled the coup, we noticed a nice pool and plenty of facilities for youngsters. The loos and washing areas were ok but being a busy August suffered from inattention.

Overall, this site does the trick for an overnighter which is something we shall continue to use it for.

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.
