hi for reasons to complicatered to explain we cant do our normal meander down to the south of france this year so we have 9 and 5 year old grandchildren and a dog with us but need to stay around the north of france along the coast or maybe at most 3 hours inland we have 2 weeks and are happy to pay top dollar for a few sites that will keep kids happy swimming pool ect but would like to stay on on a few reasonably priced aires where we can find things to do like beach or cycle rides. hopeing funsters may have some good ideas.
thanks sillybug

Coast. Try fort Mahon plage - huge aire and minutes from huge beach. €5 per night. An hour or so south of Calais.
Inland - site at les Andeleys - stunning town beautiful scenery on the banks of the seine and has a pool! In acsi book.

if you are coming over in next week or so,,,it,s rammed here with french MHs ,,,fort Mahon plage the aire there was full before lunch time as were 2 others we tried down the coast,,,we have found the ones inland easier to get on but you have to be prepared to sit and wait for them to move on sometimes.....the French that is, as some dont go till well after lunch,,,,,only been on 2 sites and they were jammed packed too,,,

We Stayed here last year in Deauville - http://www.camping-deauville.com/233-le-camping/258-les-services
Not cheap, but the kids loved the pool.

Not too packed either.

Decent bar/restaurant.

There was childrens entertainment but understandably it was all French and frankly a bit weird so my daughter stayed clear of that.

Small village 10 minutes walk and buses into Deaville and Trouville.

I guess its about 3 ish hours from Calais.

When you say no more than 3 hours inland, which port do you mean - Calais? Anything much further West than Le Havre is going to be more than 3 hours' drive from Calais, but the rest in between are all possible. Your 3 hour radius would get you close to Paris or Reims so there's plenty of possibilities.

Gravelines isn't a bad aire (Rue du Port) if you can get in - there's also a campsite. Best not to try weekends there though. Cycling, walks around the battlements, the fort, large beach. Good for a couple of days anyway.
