After a day of exploring, shopping, skating, and sampling all the yuletide highlights that Paris has to offer over the Christmas period, Villages Nature Paris is highlighting its serene and verdant surroundings located 32km away from the bustle of the city centre for families wishing to combine a city break with an activity filled holiday.

Across the holiday village’s five immersive worlds, children can get creative in the arts and crafts workshops at BelleVie Farm, before seeing the animals and gambolling in the farm-themed soft play area, ‘Lait’s Play’. In the evening, they can dance at a kids’ disco before being tucked up in bed in their nature-themed bedrooms.

Meanwhile, adults can take a dip in the Aqualagon's outdoor lagoons, which are geothermally heated to 30ºC through the year or at the Lakeside Promenade, sample the local wine at Cépages Wine Bar followed by a meal at Vapiano or Pur Etc.

As well as offering flexible arrival dates and durations, the eco-village is very accessible for those travelling from the UK, making it a convenient location for squeezing in short breaks over the festive season. Direct trains are available with Eurostar from London St Pancras (as well as Ashford International and Ebbsfleet International) to Marne-La-Vallée Chessy, from where visitors just need to hop on a bus that will take them to Villages Nature Paris. Alternatively, groups wishing to travel by car can travel by ferry or Channel Tunnel. The village is a short train or taxi ride away from Paris’ international airports for those travelling by air and families wishing to take a day trip to Disneyland are just a short bus ride away.

Accommodation options include woodland Clan Comfort cottages with prices starting from £627, Country Premium cottages and apartments by the lake or in the woods with prices from £681, and Cocoon VIP available as a cottage or apartment by the lake or in the village centre with prices from £851, each for a four-night self-catered stay and arriving December 1.

All accommodation features free Wi-Fi, fully-equipped kitchens with dishwashers, furnished terraces or balconies and flat-screen TVs. Baby beds and high chairs are available in all cottages and upon request in apartments.
