 We really liked this site. Very easy to find off the ferry and not near any major roads. The swimming pool got a bit crowded but it was 40 degrees ! Great restaurant on site. Everywhere was clean and tidy. We had a good size pitch and didn't feel on top of anyone. The site is owned by Les Castels and they have a good reputation.

 We used this site for 3 days after touring round europe as a stop before retuning home, found that as we had not booked we ended up near the road and found it very noisy all night. You could only order your bread at 5pm in the evening so if you were out all day this could be a problem. Not sure we would use this site again.

 We decided to have a weekend away in France and chose to stay at La Bien Assise in one of their caravans. As it was only for a weekend we chose to rent one of their cheapest caravans so I wasnít expecting too much. It turned out to be an ex Eurocamp caravan, which looked at bit dated but was actually in a pretty good state of repair. Only 2 very minor complaints: 1. The lounge area is uncomfortable to sit in (a problem I always seem to have with Eurocamp vans), and 2. They didnít supply any large coffee mugs Ė the only ones in the van were the size of an egg cup (which actually could come in handy as I donít remember seeing any).

What about the actual site? The site is a member of the prestigious Les Castels group. We had visited this site with our own caravan around 12 years ago when it used to be a 4-star site and the swimming pool was open to the elements. They must at some point have gone through a bad patch as the site is now only 3-stars.

All I can say is that the site must now be on the up again. The pitches are all reasonably large and well looked after. In fact the whole campsite looks very well maintained. Some reviews have spoken of traffic noise. There is a bit but it is not intrusive. The toilet blocks, although not plush, are still very good and much better than you get on many campsites. The swimming pool now has a retractable cover making it usable in inclement weather. The site also has tennis, table-tennis, mini-golf facilities, childrenísí play grounds, a bar (with wi-fi), a takeaway, and a small shop.

The only thing I would complain about is the quality of the food at the takeaway and bar. Because we were only staying for 2 nights we decided to make use of these facilities. I decided, rather rashly as it happens, to have a cheeseburger. This turned out to be a pre-packaged thing that was microwaved in its bag. It tasted and looked awful. My wife had the chicken nuggets which were passable. On our second night we decided to try the bar menu (which passes a very close resemblance to the takeaway menu). I had the three toughest and fattiest lamb chops you could imagine, and my wife had spaghetti bolognaise which was slopped into a thin dish to make it look bigger than it was. This was not heated all the way through properly. The food here isnít all that cheap. But it is very disappointing!

I should say that there is an independent restaurant situated at the back of the site, which we didnít try but I have heard that the food here is very good indeed.

To recap, with the exception of the bar/takeaway food the site is very good indeed. The pitches are large and the campsite is well kept and clean. It is much better than most 3-star sites and I donít think it will be long before Monsieur Le Camping is outside the site with his pot of paint adding that extra star to his signs.

 We have just been to the site and must say the site is well maintained, clean and friendly, as we were in a static caravan we didn't need to use the showers and toilets but from what I saw they were nice and clean. As we had the little one with us(9months) it was good to see they had two baby baths, one in the ladies and a bath top one in the mixed area.

We had croissants every morning and must say, apart from one day, there were really good quality.

Our only gripe, and one that would concern me a great deal if in a tent, is the road noise if you are pitched along that side of the camp. The site is on the main road used by the nearby quarry and the trucks started from about 4.30am!

 Very good site, clean, tidy and quiet.

Indoor pool was a boon at this time of year and kept the children well occupied. Even the water slide was open which suprised me - only the brave went on it - at only 8-9 degree heat on a good day!

My only moan the croissants and bread in the shop, we thought were bought from the supermarket - if you want the best quality a short drive into Guines and the patisserie next to the fishing shop, just through the square was the best.

A word of warning, 3 of the carvans were broken into on the first night this site opened - all electrical equipment, dvds and purses taken - they were all parked on the back fields. I feel the wardens should have advised the rest of us of this - as it was we all communicated with each other and were more careful. I would recommend a pitch down by the bar, in view, but then I would recommend never pitching up miles away from everyone else.

A new roundabout is now located outside of the site, so maps and sat navs maybe out of date.

 Easy site to find and get to from the ferry. Staff were friendly and showed us to a pitch. The toilets and showers were clean and heated. There was a bar on site and a snack bar both serving hot food. There were tennis courts, table tennis, and a swimming pool. The site looked clean and well kept and although it was the start of the season it was fairly busy. The only downside, apart from us not being fully prepared for how cold it would be at night, was the site was used by tour operators who had a party arrive late in the night talking loudly as they walked past the tent. Would use this site as a stop over again.

 The site has a lot of road noise and also there was a lots of noise from people staying on the site.

The rubbish was piled up around the bins when we arrived on Sunday someone did clear up on Monday but by Wednesday it was as bad again. The site does not have enough bins for the amount of people on it.

The shower block had a broken window and also one of the showers had been vandalised I know that this is not the site fault but it showed the level of people on the site.

The site is laid out well and has good electrics the grass was cut and generally tidy.

This is a well situated site if you have a dog and need to use the vet well place for ferries and the tunnel.

 We've used this site a few times as a stopover on the way to the south of France and found it ideal.

We found the site to be quiet, easy to find from the ferry/shuttle and has a park that the kids found great to run round and make up for being stuck in the car for such a long time.

Although we have always stayed here in a static as we are usually under canvas it's habit to check out the toilet blocks and they are clean and well maintained

We're already booked in for our stopover on the way to the south of France again this year.

 Great site for the first night in France if you want a break before you venture further into this beautiful country or for your return leg if you want a break before you catch the ferry / train back to the UK.

You will find yourself 20 minutes from the ferry/train and on a very comfortable site with excellent facilities.

A little traffic noise could be heard but not too much to spoil our stay.

The staff speak pretty good English so no problems with booking in or out or any general enquiries.

 I reviewed this site last year in July 2006 (see below) and would like to add that when we stayed this year, the site was remarkably improved from last year.† I was not impressed with the site last year but this year it was clean, neat and tidy and very well manicured with lovely flower beds.† A lot of work has clearly gone into bringing the site up to standard again and I thought this year that it was very nice indeed.
