It isn't going to be reopening there. It's flattened and the aire is following it at some point as part of the bigger port redevelopment http://www.e-architect.co.uk/france/calais-conference-centre-in-france


Blimey - talk about Starfleet Command. You can see why they don't want disreputable traveller types emptying their bog cartridges in front of that.

I was under the impression that the aire would be attached in some way to the new Municipal Campsite somewhere near Bleriot-Plage, which is a shame as our favourite Moules & Frites restaurant is next to the old aire. Also a pity to think the public loos in the old bunker next to the aire will be demolished - they were very well-kept and a pleasure to bare your bum to.

You may well be right. When we were last there, there didn't seem to be a confirmed location for the aire so you're probably more up to date than me (y) Do you know if there's any info about when it will open yet?

We were there last Tuesday. The aire is still on the harbourside and no signs up for closure yet. The site is just a pile of rubble now.

The aire is pretty much at the back of the campsite. Go past where the campsite entrance used to be, it's the next right. There are a few options to eat/drink.

The aire (on Digue Gaston Berthe) has had a bit of a make-over recently - the parking spaces are marked out and numbered - 7 euros a night, pay by phone, credit/debit card or in cash to the chap who comes round to collect) details on a board next to the bourne.
As Nick says plenty of places to eat and drink + a nice bakery just down the street - and don't forget the Friterie des Nations for the best chips in France! (y)

There is also an aire at the marina.We always stay there and eat at Le Detroit opposite.3(4)course for 19euro's!.Be careful though as they normally give you a first course courtesy of the the chef.That's fine but last time the "Chefs compliments"was soup which would have been great had I not ordered fish soup!!.We have had no problem with the marina and find more peaceful than the Aire on the sea front.The man comes around to collect 7 euro's!!P.S t.o find the marina follow signs to plage(sea front)and you can't miss it.5 mins around the block to the ferries

Just saw that the Aire by the harbour entrance from our ferry to Calais is still very much in use . There seemed to be no activity on the site where the municipal used to be . I would not recommend the Cite de Europe since there seemed to be huge numbers of refugees or asylum seekers everywhere on our way out of Calais . I have never seen as many on the side of the motorway in all our years of passing through this way . We headed straight to Le Crotoy which is a lot busier than we have seen in the past but there is still room for a few more .
