As spring approaches, guests visiting Les Villages Nature Paris can immerse themselves in a wide range of activities that celebrate the great outdoors.

At the eco-friendly holiday village animal-lovers can head to ‘BelleVie Farm’ and take part in the new ‘farmhand for a day’ activity, meeting the cute inhabitants as they gather eggs, feed the calves and tend to the goats and pigs. Children aged three to 13 can also learn how to take care of the ponies, from grooming to mucking out the stables, before riding in the woodland by the farm.

Elsewhere, guests can try honey-making, discover the art of baking bread, participate in a selection of arts and crafts and do some gardening as a family at the farm’s workshops. Furthermore, this spring will see a new family-fun show which will take place in the main yard.

Those with green hands can enjoy exploring the ‘Extraordinary Gardens’. Here, with spring flowers in full bloom, families can take gentle stroll through the series of lawns that are designed to represent the four Greek elements: fire, water, earth and air, and pick up some top horticultural tips from the gardeners who will be hard at work.

Water-sports enthusiasts can make the most of the Aqualagon. Even when the weather is cooler, swimmers can still splash about in the open air when they bathe in the outdoor pools, which are naturally heated to 30ºC throughout the year. If the weather is more April showers than spring sunshine, there is plenty to explore inside the Aqualagon with eight slides, wave pool, hot tubs, an aquatic climbing wall and kids’ play areas.

Alongside its range of restaurants and cafés, the holiday village will also be organising an Easter buffet brunch of sweet and savoury treats on each Sunday of this month from 10:00 where early risers can feast on smoked trout, eggs served with truffle oil, spring quiche, fruit salads, pastries, cakes and more.
