Reviewer: Neil+Barb 20 reviews from this member

 This is a first class site and one that we have stayed at before. It is popular for an overnight stay and is within easy reach of the Eurotunnel terminal. Best to call ahead to check availability, especially at peak season. It is open all year round, but has only a few pitches in the winter. There is also a very convenient wine and spirit outlet just a few minutes drive away for stocking up on the way home just ask at reception for directions. Good English spoken at the site.

It is easy to find on the main road out of Guines with very easy access to both the site and the pitches. All pitches are large and moving around the site with a twin axel was easy. It is a very well maintained site with a reasonable amount of shade. It reminds us very much of a UK Caravan Club site.

The sanitary blocks are very clean and some are heated. There is a swimming pool, a bar and take away and an excellent restaurant. Not your normal campsite restaurant, but one with fine dining. Just perfect for your last night in France to celebrate a good holiday.

There are vets nearby in Guines to check your mutt before you enter the UK. Best to ask the site for details and book an appointment in advance, but they do allow walk-ins at certain times of the day.

We like this site a lot and it is a shame that we only use it for a short stopover on our way to and from France.

 We stayed here last summer and had a brilliant time.

The site is big and our tent pitch was mixed in with other tents and static homes run by large camping holiday companies.

Despite the size, the showers and toilets were always clean and tidy with hot water continuously available. Although they got busy at peak times we never had a problem getting in there to shower. Similarly, the washing up huts were kept clean and were always available.

The pitch was grassy and separated by a tree and hedge - very pleasant and plenty big enough for our large 4 man tent + car and sitting area.

On-site there is a welcoming reception with very helpful staff and useful cycling / walking routes available. There is also an excellent shop selling fresh bread (delicious) in the morning and everything else from washing up liquid to chilled beers. Local supermarket is 10mins away providing you with everything else you'll need. There's also a cafe but we didn't use it (seemed popular) and we had a n evening in the restaurant (good but a bit over priced). There's also a pool but we didn't use this as it was always busy with children.

The local area is great and due to it's close proximity to the channel (everyone drives straight through the area en-route elsewhere I guess) it is not at all touristy - there are plenty of local villages and towns to explore each with local markets, cafes etc. La Touquet is certainly worth a visit - 'Paris by the Sea' is a lovely place.

We stayed here for four nights and had a great time and would definitely visit again, or use it as an over night stop before getting the ferry / tunnel home, as many people seemed to do.

Great facilities, great staff, great area. Such a success that I proposed on our final night and she said 'yes'!

 We stayed here twice this trip, coming and going to/from the UK. We arrived late from the tunnel and reception was closed, so we found a pitch for the night and paid in the morning. They seem quite happy about that. On our return visit, we were asked to choose our own pitch which is unusual for here.

The showers in the 'warm' room seemed better this time, nice and hot.

I did see at reception that the site will be open all the year round, but only 5 pitches which must be booked in advance, and the only facilities available will be the toilet block (and possibly the campervan service area?)

 Part of the Castells group. Easy to find - satnav takes you directly to it - entrance is on a roundabout.

Large and open entry to the site with plenty of space and parking around reception. They are used to 'one nighters', so check in was fast and efficient and a lady on a buggy took us to the pitch. Good sized pitches with plenty of water and hook up points.

The site felt very much like a Caravan Club site. All very well maintained, with lots of well pruned shrubs and trees. Nice tarmaced roads. Considering it was the end of the season, the pitches were in very good condition. I suspect this is because many one nighters do not put up an awning and the grass remains in good condition.

Toilet blocks were of a high standard and some areas heated, certainly needed at the end of the season.

We did not use the indoor or outdoor pool, but both looked good.

There is a bar/snack bar and a small shop. We ate at the on site gourmet restaurant, which was a very high standard and virtually full, so booking required.

Though perfect for one night for the ferry/tunnel, it is a nice enough site and area for a few extra nights. We stayed for 2. We had to see the vet to take the mutt back into the UK. We phoned the site a few days before and they gave us the phone number of a local vet so we could make an appointment in advance. They were very helpful.

The beach area around Sangatte is lovely, as is the long promenade at Calais.

Plenty of supermarkets nearby to top up on plonk. We went to Carrefor and also a local unit called Franglais. Reception again helped here. Great wine selection at good prices.

Site is 10 mins from the tunnel.

Highly recommended as one night stop or for a few days.

Reviewer: Colmax 2 reviews from this member

 I would recommend this site as a short or long stay.We stayed for three nights enjoying the wonderfully landscaped former chateau grounds which are real parkland.

A nearby Carrefour and Lidl,only one mile away,were most convenient.

The well stocked shop opened convenient hours.

The bar/restaurant was large and inviting with really good choice of food and drink.

The on site gourmet restaurant is a must eat experience.

Plenty of play areas for children and adults.

Sanitary facilities were well maintained and plenty of showers,basins and toilets.Of particular note was that the showers were hot not the usual tepid offering.

A warm and well maintained pool with a water slide were available.

The local town of Guines is walkable and a charming town with history,plenty of shops and a weekly market.

Cite Europe is 5 miles away as also is the beach at Sangatte and Auchun in Coquelle.

10 minutes or so gets you to the tunnel and port.

Reception were pleasant and efficient.

Recommended and very convenient.

Reviewer: Scarletsfan 90 reviews from this member

 This site is easy to find and is well sign posted being accessed directly off a roundabout on the D231.

Reception is open until late in the evening. The site is big and is popular with short stay caravanners due to it's close proximity to Calais.

Pitches are massive, though most are slightly sloping.

Toilets (UK Style with seats and paper)and showers are plentiful and cleaned regularly.

Cannot really comment further as we only stayed for 2 nights and did not use the other facilities on site.

 We have recently stayed at Bien Assise for one night as a stop over from the south of France to the UK. We were greeted by the extremely friendly staff who showed us to our large and beautifully maintained grass pitch. The sanitary block near to our site - although a little dated was clean and well maintained, it was a little disconcerting though, as a woman to wash your hands standing next to a man using the urinal. The take away provided good quality food and my son was delighted to discover that while you waited for your food free internet access was available in the vicinity of the restaurant. This site is near to Calais and is useful as either an overnight stay or a longer holiday. I am sure we will visit again.

Reviewer: Fiftysomething 18 reviews from this member

 We used Le Bien Assise for a couple of nights in very early July on our way home and they were able to find us a large enough pitch although we hadn't booked. Very helpful, friendly and efficient.

Close enough to the coast to cycle there for a swim so we didn't use the pool, which was packed and quite noisy. The proper restaurant was excellent - what a shame more campsites don't have the same idea - and the loo block and showers were well looked after and warm.

An easy walk into the town although I didn't think there was much there. I did wander around the market but as we were on our way home the next day I didn't buy any more food. The wine warehouse is handily placed close by the autoroute into Calais so we wiled away an hour or so there.

Hope to go back, perhaps for a long weekend, in the spring as, as well as being a great stopover at the beginning or end of a holiday its well placed and interesting enough for a 'short break'

Reviewer: Dargy 34 reviews from this member

 Great campsite ideally placed for coming or going to the ferries or tunnel - 15 mins. We have stayed a few times and Bien Assise provides generous pitches with hook ups and clean, modern facilities.

There is a restaurant next door which is a real treat and moderately priced or there is a snack bar with take away. We didn't use the pool, but it is obviously handy if you are staying longer and the site staff are very friendly.

There are plenty of pitches but recommend booking if you think you will arrive after 5.00pm. Part of the Castels group.

 Reviewers - mature couple with car, tent and bikes.

We have used this site many times, mainly as a stopover to/from UK. It is well cared for, clean and tidy, grass cut short and hedges trimmed.

The toilet blocks are good, though the showers in the heated unisex room were not fixed to the wall, and difficult to position. I prefer the showers in the ladies block. I did think last time that if they came to refurbish, it would be better to put all the toilets into the unheated single sex blocks, and the showers and enclosed basins into the heated block.

Haven't used the pool, restaurant, shop or bar.

We did stay a couple of days last time, and had time to explore the town. There is a TI office where you can get a town trail, and there's a museum too, with an entry fee. On the far side of town is a canal, nice for a walk or cycle.

The main negative for this site is the price, quite expensive, though this time it was cheaper than last.
