We have always enjoyed staying on the Calais aire opposite the ferry terminal both on our way into France and on our way back home, OK it's a little bit noisy but we like the chips! Anyone know how safe the aire is now with all the illegal immigrants trying to get over to the UK? We are traveling over to France on Monday 6th October for 5 weeks but will give it a swerve if it is too risky. Would appreciate any info from anyone who has stayed on the Calais aire or in the Calais area recently. Cheers

Sooo.. ( sorry to ask but even the map is not great for me ) is it RIGHT out the port as that new road is quite a long one and does not seem to have anywhere to turn off until you get to the big roundabout where the canal is ?

Will be stopping there 20th December, if any illegals want a lift they will be more than welcome as we are heading for Southern Spain.
