Nearest airport: Beauvais 130 miles
The 5* Camping la Bien Assise is set in beautiful countryside on the edge of Guînes forest and close to the ferry ports. This Castels Camping site is very family orientated, typically French and well cared for.
You may have noticed that some companies advertise la Bien Assise as being in Picardy whilst others say it is in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais, and in our book it is the latter.
The atmosphere is peaceful here and there is plenty of space for the children to play, with the grassy emplacements located in the pretty parkland of an ancient château. The former stables have been carefully converted into a welcoming shop and bar, and the traditional French restaurant, La Ferme Gourmande, is set in an old farmstead where both locals and guests relish the gourmet fare. Active holidaymakers can use the site facilities, which include tennis and mini golf, or can venture off site to explore the extensive forest of Guînes on bike or by foot.
