A joint venture between Euro Disney and Pierre & Vacances, Villages Nature® Paris represents a major innovation in family-friendly, sustainable tourism just 32km from the French capital and a 12-minute drive from Disneyland Paris. Opening in summer 2017, the holiday village comprises five immersive worlds designed to make guests feel at one with nature, get a change of scene and help them reconnect as a family.
• Aqualagon®, Europe’s biggest waterpark to be heated entirely with geothermal energy, including an outdoor lagoon, aquatic climbing wall, wave pools, white-water rivers, geysers, bubbles, splash pools and a spa.
• BelleVie Farm, with daily workshops on looking after the animals, a Pony Club with forest rides, and a full-scale farm playground with silo slides, hay-bale trampolines and tractor bikes. There will also be bread-making sessions using farm ingredients, a tea-room and a farm shop.
• Forest of Legends, with hiding places, hanging nests, den- and treehouse-building, suspended ropebridges and mysterious trails, plus workshops, puzzles and interactive shows.
• The Extraordinary Gardens, based on the four Greek elements - water, fire, earth and air - and designed to flower in every season. Artisans will be on hand to give visitors tips on caring for their own garden at home.
• Lakeside Promenade, the Villages Nature® Paris hub, with shops, restaurants and cafés serving local produce, entertainment, sport and leisure activities, kids’ clubs and evening events, from bowling to bedtime stories. There’s also pedaloing and boating on the lake itself, lounging on the beach, stand-up paddle-boarding and beach volleyball.
Self-catering accommodation continuing the natural theme:
