    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a site in Northern france, not to far from Calais (under 100 miles).
    It would need to be family freindly. We would be staying for 2 weeks.
    Any recomendations?

    Kind regards

    Can recomend Berny Riviera

    here http://www.la-croix-du-vieux-pont.com/

    slightly more than 100miles but only just. Does great coach days out to Paris, Disney and Parc astriex, Lovely fishing lake, lovely swimming complex and a nice town within walking distance.

    Big site though and quite busy, but we have been many times. Normally stop for a few days on the way to the deep south.
    But nethertheless, good for kids:thumb:

    Of forgot to mention as I see in your avatar you like military history.

    Treaty of Versailles was signed at a museum within 20 mins drive.

    Vimy ridge is on the way (well worth a visit)

    As well as several other battlefields that are worth a visit.

    And if you do visit any of the battle field centres, ask for the passport deal, it offers a good discount, especially for families:thumb:

    Agreed, have been there twice, good base site for children. Watch the river, its deep and used by large barges. Fishing also available. from viewing the website it seems to have been done up since we were there. there used to be a good bakery and small supermarket offsite within easy walking distance. Second time we were there on our last night the waiter ripped us off in the restaraunt - probably no longer there - and our only bad experience so far in France and we have been lots with the snail and for special weekends. Whenwe were there the village itself was shut by 9pm, very quiet in the village at night. Its popular with the Eurocamp type holiday tents and high season will be busy. Good clean toilet/shower facilities at the time.

    Hi have to agree with Haggers we use that site often and Sophie loves it. As your coming out of the entrance the house in front still has the bullet holes in it from the war or thats what we where told.
    Some nice restaurants with in walking distance we stayed there on our first trip to France for 18days and never got bored once.

    If you opt for this one and would like some advice just ask.

    One we have used a few times is Le Clos Cacheleux in Miannay it's around an hour and a halfs drive from the port at Calais..and that hour and a half is a steady drive at 60 Mph It has a sister site across the road called Val de Trie which is a bit more open...I do believe the site is in the Alan Rogers guide or try this http://www.camping-levaldetrie.fr Hope this helps
