Center Parcs holding corporation Pierre et Vacances and Euro Disney join forces to create a Village Nature in Île-de-France, a few kilometers close to Disneyland Paris. Starting from May 21, 2021, we can go and relax in this green and environmentally friendly village. What can we do there and how does it work amid the coronavirus pandemic? We tell you everything.

Villages Nature Paris opened in 2017 near Paris, a stone's throw from Disneyland Paris. And if you want to go green without having to drive 100km, this is a spot likely to delight you.

Amid the coronavirus crisisVillage Nature has announced to open again on May 21, 2021 to holiday goers with health measures certified by Bureau Veritas providing, since April 27, 2020, a label to certify the quality of the methods set up amid the Covid-19 epidemic.

Among those measures for instance, desks and contact areas are cleaned every two hours. The village also announces the body temperature of each guest will be checked at the entrance and hand sanitizer will be available. Moreover, managers are setting up reinforced delivery service enabling guests staying these to shop and get their deliveries from restaurants without having to get out.

Furthermore, the number of guests in restaurants or the water park (if allowed to open again) will be limited and only activities enabling social distancing will be open, only bookable and payable online, or at the reception desk to limit contacts and cash payment.

But such a big center needs water and power supply... so how do we do that without destroying the environment?

Villages Nature Paris conceptual approach is based on a Sustainable Action Plan developed in partnership with the Bioregional association whilst pursuing ten "One Planet Living" objectives:

  • zero carbon
  • zero waste
  • sustainable transport
  • local and sustainable materials
  • local and sustainable food
  • sustainable water
  • land use and wildlife
  • culture and community
  • equity and local economy
  • health and happiness

For example in Villages Nature Paris, we can:

  • Swim in the open-air in a heated pool even in winter! With geothermal energy, 9,000 tons of CO2 are avoided each year. 100% of the needs in heat of the place (Aqualagon water, heating and heated sanitary water in all buildings) are covered by this sustainable and renewable energy producing no greenhouse gas.

  • Attend the water natural purification with ecofriendly filtering
    Water from Aqualagon pools or from the two hanging gardens and the two horizontal gardens is naturally filtered by plants. Treated waters are then released in the lake and used for watering.

  • Discover the local cultural and gastronomic heritage
    Villages Nature Paris offers food from local productions or ecofriendly agriculture. Outings in Paris and Seine-et-Marne are also provided.

Of course, like in all other Centerparcs, in Village Nature Paris we walk, we ride bikes or we drive electric cart so we forget very polluting cars or ATVs which will stay on the parking lot during your stay.

I do not know about you, but we are definitely looking forward to discovering all this!
