What a beautiful little site!

Access is a little tight through the streets leading up to this site and as long as you don’t meet anything coming the opposite way you will be fine.

Site is easily reached off the main D901 and the area is well serviced with supermarkets - Aldi, Leclerc and Carrefour - both with fuel.

Lovely town with cobbled streets, bars, restaurants, antique shops and a market in the square on a Saturday morning.

Now for the downside, - the toilets, showers and washing up facilities are amongst the worst we have ever experienced in France. They certainly put a capital G in Grim!

When they were built - probably 30+ years ago, they would have been ‘basic’ but years of nil investment and an obvious inadequate or non existent cleaning regime have certainly taken its toll.

My wife accidentally touched the wall when showering (in flip flops) and was shocked that it felt ‘slimy’!

I would have thought for the €22 per night that it should have been better.

Washing machine now removed so don’t expect to do laundry, but did find a good Laverie in town.

Bread van on site at 08. 30 with usual goods.

Payment at site only in cash

Good for stopover so long as you don’t need any basic services.

Stayed one night here off the Eurotunnel enroute to Brittany. Easy journey (less than hour) and booking-in. The site is terraced up towards the citadel. We stayed on the bottom section in a good sunny and level spot. Upper terraces of the site were not occupied so felt nice and quiet. Separate male and female san facilities (need your own loo roll but there are seats and soap). There were some long term caravans not in use at the time we were there but didn't spoil the look or feel of the site. Mix of nationalities. Lovely walk up the hill to the ramparts. There was an outdoor performance of Les Mis at the citadel on the night we stayed, with a huge firework finale which woke us up. Lovely town with Grand Place and bars/bistrots. River and river walk (far side of river) the other side of the campsite. Could easily spend more than 1 night here and will probably use the site again as it is well looked after - we paid €22 for 2 adults, 1 child (12), 1 dog in campervan (no EHU). Nothing specifically for children, except icecreams! No pool or play area. The 'toot-toot' breadvan in a morning was useful - the other 3 sites we used on this holiday required you to book croissants/bread the night before. Described as toot but is actually a loud blast so you won't miss it! We all loved it - a fab start to a wonderful 11 night holiday in France.

Stayed for two nights on our return to Calais. A secluded and peaceful site within walking distance [uphill] of the town of Montreuil Sur Mer, which we thoroughly enjoyed and walked round the ramparts. The facilities are a little dark and in need of sprucing up, but plenty of very hot water available. When we stayed the toilets and showers were shared but as there wasn't many people staying it didn't have much impact, I don't know whether that changes at high season - only the female loo and showers were available to all.

Reviewer: Elaine-n-Trev 28 reviews from this member

I agree with most of what has been said. It is (potentially) a fantastic little site. Great little town with loads to see etc.

The let down was that the toilets were only three (unisex) as the male toilets were closed. Off season we paid 21. 10 euros a night and although WIFI was free, it had a weak signal, so slow. There wasn't a couple, just a gentleman who seemed to be a heavy smoker and smoked in the office, which for a non smoker was difficult to breathe.

No loo paper, but soap available.

I guess the judgement is that it'll do for a couple of nights. If the toilets and washing facilities (no washing machine) were sorted, it would be a great place to spend time.

Yes ok, all that's been said is true! But! The facilities may be old but they are clean and have lovely hot water and no cost for the showers. The site is well looked after and the town is not to big to be daunting and not too small to be boring. In fact it's great for a stay of two to three days with a great supermarket not too far away. If you have not been here before you are in for a treat because a walk around the ramparts is well worth it. So, the site is good, the town is a little gem, great for the vet if you have a dog, good supermarket near for those last minute buys, and just about an hour away from the ferry or tunnel. What more do you want!

Reviewer: A Thousand Moons 4 reviews from this member

This was the first site we had ever stopped at in France having only had a caravan for a week, so we didn't have much to judge it on. A very enthusiastic couple greeted us who were clearly looking after the site for the weekend from their static caravan. It seemed nice enough and was very close to the chunnel. The walk around the Ramparts was fab and the local shopping good. All in all for what it is (a hop off from the crossing) it met our needs, but I wouldn't want to spend more than a couple of nights there. When the real manager arrived on the Monday he was not nearly so helpful!

Very pretty site, terraced, so pitches nice & level, plenty of elec hookups, even for tents. Very easy walk into Montreuil centre & in easy reach of coast (Breck, Le Touquet, Wimeraux etc). Just over an hour from Calais, not towing. Toilet facilities big let down though: two blocks - main one by reception which was, well, ok - dated, and not partic clean. 2nd block at top of site was disgusting - very poor condition, neglected, tiles missing from crockery sink surrounds, paint peeling off everywhere, green mould and dirt on walls, cobwebs & dead insects all over. Plentiful supply of hot water in both blocks though. Free wifi was not working/available when we visited. Beware, credit cards not accepted - payment in cash only.

This was our very first site on our first trip to France with our caravan. We had pre-booked but on arrival the site office was closed so we had a look around and were opting to take a shaded pitch down at end of lower camping area which was not overly appealing but appeared to be all that was available. However when we returned to caravan site owner had turned up and took us to what I had originally thought was two pitches but turned out to be 1 large pitch with separate area for the car. Got sorted and had a lovely 4 days. Easy access from top of pitch to the town which as well as lovely walk round the ramparts, had a fascinating citadel which was well worth a visit for a reasonable entry fee.

Toilet facilities were basic, and if showering at night be prepared to be plunged into darkness when timer switch runs out! Fantastic 'toot toot' bakers van calls into site every morning (except a Wednesday I think) with fresh bread etc.

Excellent introduction to French campsites and would use again if ever in area.

We used the site as a stopover while en-route to the south of France. It is about 10 mins from the Autoroute and about an hour from Calais.

The site is situated in a very pleasant location next to a river and on the slopes of the Citadel. All the pitches are level although there are some steep access roads. It is close to a railway line but we were not disturbed during the night.

The main facilities were clean and perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay. We had booked via an acknowledged email. When we arrived, the owner eventually found his note about our booking and offered us the choice of two pitches.

The owner was helpful in explaining the walk, via the citadel, into the town. There is a good choice of restaurants around the town square and in surrounding streets. The area has some fascinating history, including the town being the inspiration for Victor Hugo's Les_Misérables.

I was impressed with this little site. I think we found it in the ACSI camping book. 18 euros per night, its a terraced site on different levels. We had a level hard standing pitch with electrics. The toilets are old but clean, showers worked okay and there is ample hot water for washing up. Free WiFi but no laundry facilities. Chemical loo disposal but not motorhome waste disposal. It's a tidy 10 minute walk up to the town (old walled city) with a wealth of shops, restaurants, bars and banks. Importantly there is also a Vet if like us you had to get your pooch sorted with the dog passport. The vet doesn't speak fantastic English but with my poor French we got by. That will cost you 43 euro. Vets is on the main square where all the bars/restaurants are, walk past the toy shop on your left and the vets is about 100 yards further on left hand side. At the large roundabout just outside the town there is a large supermarket so handy to stock up if you are returning to the UK.

The Site: old fashioned but beautifully situated down by the river at the foot if the town walls. Clean but old facilities. Very handy for the Ferry. There were lots of people who use this site on a regular basis and I imagine in the summer it would get quite busy so would advise booking throughout July and August. Owner very helpful and I would recommend this site.
