    Hans Sur Lesse about 45 mins inside the Belgium border from Lux. Great Aire, nice village and access to walking/train tour of underground caves.

    +1 for Gravelines. Lovely little town and nice walk to the sea front.

    We have stayed on the Bergues aire a few times, about 30 miles from the Tunnel. No facilities at all but its free, always has space and is only a 2 minute walk from a very pleasant town.

    +1 for Hans Sur Lesse (50.127583, 5.187909) Lovely town worth a couple of days stop over.
