General

  • Well-appointed holiday park in the grounds of a French manor
  • Handy for Calais, Grand Site des Deux-Caps, theme parks and waterparks
  • Two playgrounds, nine-hole miniature golf course and volleyball

If ever you’ve fallen foul of a delayed ferry or Eurotunnel train on your way through to Calais (a highly handy 20-minute drive away), you’ll know that an untimely site arrival can leave you somewhat scuppered.... But not with Château de la Bien-Assise, for its 24-hour barriers and flexible arrival times for booked guests mean that if you rock up even if the middle of the night, you’ll have a pitch to park up at no probs.

And while this place may well be super for a stopover on your way between England and France and wider Europe, it’s also splendidly set up as a family holiday destination, with well-appointed facilities and a setting among the Caps et Marais d'Opale Natural Regional Park: a land filled with all sorts to see and do.

If you arrive during daylight hours, head for a dip in the heated pool with retractable roof first, followed by a sun-drenched doze on the alongside solarium if you've had a long journey here (or indeed if not). For times of higher energy, a nine-hole miniature golf course and three outdoor ping pong tables await (bats and balls can be bought at the shop), tennis courts are available for an extra charge, and a volleyball court and outdoor gym are to hand should you be feeling particularly croissant conscious.

The park has two playgrounds – one for kids aged eight to 12 and another for smaller people aged three to seven. Indoors, the bar, pool table, pinball machine and several arcade games can entertain all family members.

    One night stopover so did not use all the facilities but found the site to be well suited in a rural location - friendly and efficient staff, clean facilities, level and reasonable size pitch; ease of access to the City of Europe mall and tunnel terminal;

    Location was excellent for stop off before or after Eurotunnel travel or Calais port .
    Grounds and setting lovely .
    Pool area and other entertainment features, tennis, playground etc were really good .
    Bar and snack bar super except for lack of GIN !!! . Great pizza though made up for it .
    Able to leave early in the morning .

    Disliked: 

    Thought the toilet and shower facilities were dated and not as good as we expected .
    They were clean but lacked extra touches such a hand dryers and sockets for hairdryers/shavers in washbasin areas .

    Very restful with lovely walks around the lake. Staff very helpful and friendly. Showers etc were clean and quirky! Check them out for yourself 🤔. Plenty of space to pitch up with views across lake.

    The only thing we didn’t understand was the water to fill our tank was not drinking water. We discovered this when About to drink a much needed cup of tea!!!

Directions


Local attractions

That it’s set between the sea and the countryside is the big advantage of this site’s setting: the beach resorts of Wimereux and Wissant are both within half an hour’s drive, plus within half an hour’s pootle you’ll happen across one of Europe’s largest aquariums at the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer.

If you’re one for setting yourself up for smashing vistas, then the Grand Site des Deux-Caps – a most spectacular protected coastal area comprising the Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez and looking right out towards Dover’s white cliffs – is a short drive away.

When kid-friendly day trips are calling, head to the family theme parks of Bagatelle or Dennlys for waterslide swooshing and miniature railway or monorail rides, or to the coastal waterpark of Aqualud for more than two kilometres of slides, tropical pools and wave machines, all easily within an hour’s drive.
