Villages Nature near Disneyland Paris: This new holiday park by Center Parcs is a collaboration between Euro Disney SCA and the Pierre et Vacances Center Parcs Group. With its close proximity to the city of Paris and Disneyland Paris, it offers enough things to do. But before you already plan your trip to visit the Eiffel Tower, or Disneyland Park, there is enough to do at Villages Nature itself.
Review Villages Nature Paris
The weekend after Villages Nature opened for guests, we stayed 4 days and 3 nights in a Country Premium Apartment. Even though we visited Disneyland Paris, we also enjoyed all the things Villages Nature has to offer. You can read our review here.
From Disneyland Paris to Villages Nature
Villages Nature is located close to Disneyland Paris. It only take about 10 minutes to drive to the parking lot. At the moment there is no shuttle service available (similar to Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch). This does mean that you need to drive yourself to the parks. Unfortunately this also means you have to pay for parking unless it is included in your annual pass.
