    We are planning on staying at the aire in Citi Europe this Wednesday night,
    Anyone heard if there has been any adverse comment regarding the local immigrant population in this area. image.jpg
    We will be accompanied by our daughter and husband with their alsation dog, in a hire van, and we don't want them to get a bad impression, on their first trip.
    Keith.

    The immigrants I met that climbed out of the back of a Romanian truck were very polite and well spoken but very hungry. I never worry about stopping overnight there myself and it is usually quite busy so not alone.

    We stayed there overnight at Easter - no problems at all. They have cut back the bushes surrounding the area by quite a bit, so there's less cover for potential passengers :).

    Always sensible to check under bike covers etc before you set off, but it seemed to have quietened down a lot compared with last summer.

    I always park in the centre and with other vans.. Never any issues.
    Often see vans who have placed themselves up the edges or corners and away from others.
    It may be that they have yappy dogs or are doing a bit of "van rocking" :rolleyes: and dont want to disturb other but cant help wonder that when you do hear tales of problems if it's these vans that are the one's having the issues..

    Okay, that's pretty much what I was hoping, our train is a late one so don't want to be traveling to far before bedding down.
    Thanks for the replies, it'll make the missus feel a bit more relaxed.

    :) Keith..:sleep:

    Seems you are fixed up, I can only agree with the others.

    We stopped there overnight two weeks ago - the only inconvenience was from some git running his generator all night.

    Next morning the traffic into the ferry port area was held up by roaming migrants near the gate, but I saw no dodgy characters around Cite Europe and haven't for some time now. Bear in mind the MH parking area is overlooked by a Police Nationale station.

    Yes that's where the immigrants climbed out of the HGV trailer. Don't rely on them looking at anything :LOL:

    Plenty of other close options if you don't like the look of Cité Europe when you get there. Calais port aire is about 5 minutes away (for the moment). Wissant is about 20 minutes away the other side of Sangatte. Gravellines is about 20 minutes the other direction towards Dunkirk. I'm sure there are a few others in that radius as well.
