Story
Villages Nature Paris is creating a new kind of holiday
Developed in partnership between Euro Disney and Groupe Pierre & Vacances Center Parcs, Villages Nature Paris is designed using One Planet Living principles to connect its guests with nature through a range of activities; from its geothermally heated Aqualagoon to the stunning Extraordinary Gardens with more than 25,000 trees. The resort is easily accessible by public transport. Sited just three miles from the busy TGV/Eurostar/RER railway station of Marne La Vallee-Chessy, visitors from a large part of north-west Europe will be able to reach it in a few hours by high speed rail. Once on-site, visitors can make use of its electric buses to get around.
