Handy stop for ferry or tunnel, easy to find, lots of space. With so many here and security patrol it felt safe. Great for walking to Carrefour and to restaurants.

Easy to reach from tunnel, 5 minutes away, wouldn't stay here for a holiday, but as a stopover before/after the tunnel it is perfect.

A ideal location to stay before or after tunnel/ferry. Location was fairly quiet overnight and felt safe. No facilities besides bins. Handy for a bit of shopping in the morning. Would like them to put in a waste disposal for water as this would be great before the ferry

Basically it's just a car park but in a very handy position for both the Calais ferries and the Channel Tunnel. Because of this it is only to be expected that motorhomes are coming and going all night but I still slept well. The hypermarket and other shops in the mall are very useful for stocking up whether arriving in France or departing for home. There are also a number of cafes/restaurants/bars in the mall, a cinema and a Mcdonalds in walking distance.

First time staying at Cite de Europe and had no issues will definitely use it again 10+ vans already parked up when we arrived 23:00. Well lit if unsure once you approach the site head towards Toys R us and the carpark is near it.

On here tonight all open (22nd) quite a few vans on and it seems quiet enough. Just a carpark as stated earlier but will do for a night stop.

Good stop off point before or after the crossing. More shops than you can shake a stick at! A bit bright at night, but a good, relatively quiet place to stop.

As said very convenient. There are many eating options inside the mall. About 30 vans last Saturday night (24/06/2017), think the previous review was the wrong place, I've never known it closed. A word of warning, the end by the entrance is lined with trees, one had come down in the wind, so stay more to centre. Otherwise good.

Convenient free overnight parking for shopping and the Eurotunnel. We have stayed here several times with no real concerns for safety as there are usually half a dozen or so motorhomes parking up. We usually shop at the more competitive Auchan, either in Calais or Dunkirk, from which this is an easy drive.

April 2017. Used this after a late crossing from the UK to ensure an early start next day. Brilliant quiet spot and toilets etc inside the nearby shopping centre. Well lit at night, and Motorhome service point at Carrefour (Also LPG) We have a Facebook page to record our travels - if you search for Betty Bolero & "like" the page, then scroll down to find photos & write ups for this area if you fancy. The posts get older the further down the page you go, simply carry on until you find the date.

As stated, a free tarmac car park adjacent to large shopping complex, ideal for overnighting prior to tunnel crossing.

This is the perfect stopover for the Euro tunnel coming or going. There are no services on the car park but there is a service point at the petrol station on the other side of the shopping centre (2 minute drive) for fresh water and dumping waste water etc.

Great stopover if you are using either the tunnel or ferry. Lots of other Motorhome's for company. City Europe is a bit pricey. We did our shopping for both fuel and wine at Auchen and then pitched up. Good for a bite to eat though. Felt very safe and will use it again.

We arrived on a Sunday hoping to do some last minute shopping but, to our surprise, most places in this large complex were shut. The aire itself was an uninspiring tarmac car park with no services. We decided to give it a miss and move closer to Calais

Always stop off here prior to tunnel or ferry - both a short drive. Never had any problems in four years. Gendarmerie at one end Tunnel security at the side. Handy for shops if you need to top up with wine and also 24hr fuel. always Motorhomes here coming and going for early departures/arrivals. Pretty quiet.

Official Motorhome Parking at the rear entrance to the Cite Europe shopping centre. Follow the Aire signs. Been using this on every trip for at least the last 5 years and never any bother. The local Police and Gendarmes drive through a couple of times a night. Never any sign of trouble during the recent other problems in Calais. Handy for your last bit of Carrefor shopping and plenty of food places to eat up to I think 9 pm.

An ideal stop off when coming or going through Calais with supermarket shopping on your door step.Now with the Cite europe Petrol station having a service point, not sure if they charge as I just saw it when driving off.
Have stopped here 4 times before and all good

Just got back today, no problems as always, about 10 of us on there, very windy night.
Just wanted to give heads up, we now have Services!!! on your way to the Tunnel crossing from leaving Aire there is now a Carrefour garage, huge open plan place with full services including grey and black waste.Did not stop to get prices looks like it is newly open, within the Cite Europe grounds. Will make life a lot easier than hunting before crossing.

Arrived here late Saturday evening about 23:00. Very quiet as all shopping traffic had long since left, just 8 motor homes on the large car park. A little noise at the far end as it is next to the entrance road to eurotunnel
but we had a peaceful nights sleep and no sign of any problems at all.

Stay here about 3 times a year for past 8 years, never had a problem or witnessed any problems. Always feel safe/sleep well. We use tunnel on late crossing, sleep here then wake refreshed for good drive next day, perfect location for us. Our other stop over if heading to Germany direction is Bray Dunes around 40mins down road.

Popular stop off point for us to fill up on the way out with provisions or on the way back with wine!
Allegedly safe location to stop over for the night, there is even a Police station right next door - but our own experiences are that we have never felt totally safe and have witnessed the after effects of crime. When we returned to our MH another English couple returned to their car which was parked next to us. The guy was distraught has he had two expensive road bikes stolen from the back of his car despite them being locked on to the towbar.
There are plenty of alternatives within a few km and even felt safer at Sangatte Dunes. Others have however reported no problems.
