Villages Nature® Paris – A unique family holiday resort close to Disneyland®
How does an eco friendly family holiday resort within easy reach of the UK, 6km from Disneyland® Paris with a tropical aqua park paradise; an adventure forest; a spa for parents; natural lake with a beach for sunny days; a farm where kids can collect chicken eggs, look after the goats and ponies; a fun indoor play area, kids’ & baby club; restaurants & shops sound? There is so much more too!
I’ve recently heard about Villages Nature® Paris . This exciting new resort is the result of a collaboration between Euro Disney SCA and the Pierre et Vacances Center Parcs Group. For latest prices see here.
Just like Center Parcs, the idea is organised fun with a number of classes and activities set in five recreational and immersive ‘worlds’: Aqualagon, Bellevie Farm, Forest of Legends, Extraordinary Gardens and Lakeside Promenade.
With a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability, this resort aims to be that little bit different: Whether you are looking for a family activity, something sporty, or are a nature lover, a thrill seeker or a foodie.
With a huge range of activities in a resort focussing on blending nature with architecture – everyone from tots to teens and parents are catered for. Similarly to Center Parcs, Villages Nature® has many activities available for free.
A huge draw is the Aqualagon, with the indoor area opening onto an outdoor lagoon – all heated with geothermal energy that is set 30°C all year long so you can enjoy both the inside and outside areas whatever the weather. This water park also encompasses several giant waterslides, a wave pool, splash pad, adventure river, 2 indoor paddling pools, 2 outdoor paddling pools, 3 jacuzzis and a climbing wall. Parents are not forgotten with a Deep Nature® spa with 5 treatment rooms and a semi-aquatic outdoor lounging area.
Other activities include; a soft play • adventure playground • the farm • a maze • discovery trails • a treasure hunt • bowling • bee keeping • bread making • paddle boarding • raft making • canoeing • kids’ club • wine tasting classes • mini disco • concerts at the waterfront • The website lists about 120 activities in total.
How to Reach Villages Nature®
Central Paris with small kids can be a little daunting. At Villages Nature® Paris, these minor transport & meal issues dissipate. Whether you are flying with a baby, toddler or teen, you will find easy access from Paris CDG Airport (10 minutes) and 30 minutes from Paris on the RER A line or via the Eurostar and bus, many step issues are avoided too.
The resort is conveniently easily accessible from Disneyland® Paris, (a short public bus ride from right outside the resort) making it a great option to combine a trip to Disneyland®. For some great planning tips on visiting Disneyland Paris see here.
Stroller accessible restaurants have family friendly opening hours. Cepage Wine Bar is open Monday till Sunday: 9:AM til Midnight. However, if your little ones want breakfast before that (I know mine do!) the Bakerie Meunier is open Monday till Sunday: 7:30 AM till 8:30 PM which offers a breakfast delivery service!
Other restaurants also serving fresh and local produce include, an Italian restaurant and a wine bar, The Lagon Café, Délices de La Ferme and the Bowling Bar. Conveniently, there is also an on-site grocery store open daily from 07.30.
Guests can choose from 3 different accommodation styles- Cocoon VIP, Country Premium or Clan Comfort. Available as apartments or cottages, each accommodation has a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and a spacious living room. Cheerfully decorated standard accommodation ‘Clan Comfort Cottage’ can sleep 4 or 6 in 2 or 3 bedrooms. The master room has a double bed, whilst the other bedroom(s) has twin beds all decorated to appeal.
What looks so attractive about this resort is being able to visit Paris in a child friendly environment. Kids are clearly welcome with all the various activities, kid friendly rooms and meal times to suit. Babies to teens are all catered for and of course Mum and Dad too! Have you been?
