Center Parcs biedt inspiratie voor duurzamer leven

Vandaag (16 mei) presenteert de Raad van Kinderen ideeën naar aanleiding van de centrale vraag: ‘Hoe kunnen vakantieparken gezinnen helpen met een duurzaam leven’. Het vakantiepark wil gasten inspireren om duurzamer te leven, niet alleen tijdens de vakantie maar ook thuis.


Center Parcs overhandigt de Raad van Kinderen ook het eerste ‘duurzaamheidspaspoort’, welke is voortgekomen uit één van de adviezen van vorig jaar. Het paspoort bevat opdrachten met ‘groene daden’ voor het gezin om daarmee duurzaam gedrag op de parken te stimuleren en belonen. Dit jaar gaat de Raad van Kinderen een stapje verder en wordt niet alleen gekeken naar meer duurzaamheid op de parken, maar vooral hoe gasten een duurzamere leefstijl mee naar huis kunnen nemen.

Geothermally Heated Villages Nature Paris Project on Track for 2017 Opening

Next spring, 14 years after being conceived by Pierre & Vacances Center Parcs and Euro Disney, Villages Nature Paris will open 20 miles east of Paris. The resort will be a showcase for green design, geothermal technology and will be based on harmony between man and nature. Villages Nature Paris will open with 916 dwellings, more than two-thirds of which will be cottages and one-third family suites. The dwellings will be owned by individual and other investors and managed by Villages Nature Paris. According to Dominique Cocquet, CEO of Villages Nature Paris, within five years the development is expected to include more than 1,700 dwellings.

Villages Nature Paris is expected to host more than 1 million visitors a year on its 444 acres. In addition to places to stay, there will be many attractions including the Aqualagoon covered water park and outdoor lagoon, shops and restaurants, farm, lake, spa and gardens. “We believe we will have mostly families,” Cocquet says.

The resort, which Cocquet describes as “cutting edge and in synch with what the next century will be,” will offer a more relaxing alternative to nearby Disneyland Paris. The priority market for Villages Nature Paris is France and the United Kingdom, Germany is a secondary market, and Belgium, Netherlands, Scandinavia and Middle East have been identified as opportunistic markets. “Our goal is that at least one visitor in three at Villages Nature Paris comes by public transport,” Cocquet says.

One Planet Living Principles

Ten years ago Villages Nature Paris was one of the first projects to embrace the One Planet Living principles and to embed them into its concept, design and vision. One Planet Living is a global initiative based on 10 principles of sustainability developed by BioRegional and WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature). One Planet Living projects aim for zero carbon. Villages Nature Paris partners are aiming for net zero carbon impact from all energy use by 2020. One Planet Living projects also have the goals of 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, and health and happiness.

First look at Off-Road Explorers in action

Off-Road Explorers is up and running at Sherwood Forest. If this is the first time you’ve heard about our newest activity (where have you been?), then you can get the full low-down here.

Here are the cliff notes

  • Off-Road Explorers is a new and unique activity for three- to six-year-olds
  • It’s available at Sherwood Forest but will be rolling out to Woburn Forest and Longleat Forest later in the year
  • You’ll find it at the Outdoor Activity Centre

So, what’s involved?

With mum or dad cheering from the sidelines, little ones hop into the driving seat and are shown how to safely steer and operate their very own miniature off-roader. After a few laps of our training track, they’ll complete laps of our bespoke off-road course, tackling obstacles like rumble strips and bumpy ground, collecting puzzle pieces along the way to solve a jigsaw in the back of their car.

Parents are equipped with a fob that will instantly but gently stop the car moving – so if your little ones turn out to be real petrol heads, you’re still in control. Once they’re sitting comfortably and have donned their tiny tweed flat cap, they’ll do a few laps of our training track, getting used to the pedal and the steering wheel.

Then it’s time to get down to business on our specially built, bespoke off-road track, complete with splashy puddles, hillocks, bumps and rumble strips.

Along the way, they’ll need to keep their eye out for woodland creatures hiding amongst the trees. Each one has a little bag of puzzle pieces that they need to collect in order to complete the forest scene in the back of their 4×4.

After a couple more laps – just for fun – there’s time to squeeze in a quick photo opportunity (you’ll definitely want to bring this one out in a few years when they’re learning to drive for real!).

If you think your little one would have a wheel-y good time at Off-Road Explorers, it’s available to book now.

Nederlander meer op vakantie; In eigen land vooral kampeer- en bungalowvakanties

Deze zomer wil twee derde van de Nederlandse bevolking op vakantie, dat zijn ruim 10,7 miljoen Nederlanders. Zo’n 7,6 miljoen Nederlanders willen deze zomer naar het buitenland gaan (gelijk aan vorig jaar) en 2,6 miljoen Nederlanders kiezen voor eigen land (+5%). Ruim een half miljoen Nederlanders heeft wel plannen om deze zomer weg te gaan, maar weet nog niet of dat een binnen- of buitenlandse vakantie wordt. Dit blijkt uit grootschalig onderzoek dat NBTC-NIPO Research in april heeft uitgevoerd naar de vakantieplannen van de Nederlandse bevolking.

In eigen land vooral kampeer- en bungalowvakanties
Ongeveer een kwart van alle zomervakanties wordt in Nederland doorgebracht. Dit jaar vieren zo’n 2,6 miljoen Nederlanders zomervakantie in eigen land; dat zijn er ruim 100.000 meer dan het jaar ervoor (+5%). Tijdens de lange zomervakantie in eigen land zijn de bungalow of de camping de meest populaire accommodaties; dit jaar is het de verwachting dat er zo’n 1,1 miljoen vakanties worden doorgebracht in een bungalow en circa 900.000 op de camping.

Your summer 2016 inspiration starts here

It’s coming up to that time of year again. The time to set your out-of-office, hang up the school bags until September (just remember to check for old lunch boxes and apple cores first), and load up the car for your family summer break.

This year, why bother with the hassle of passports and the pain of the airport, when everything you could possibly want is waiting for you at Center Parcs? With the sun shining and the lake glistening, you’re a world away from home with plenty to keep the whole family occupied.

It’s time to swap your ‘to do’ list for our ‘must do’ list.

Saddle up

So where to begin? First things first – swing by the Cycle Centre to pick up your family fleet. Hit the trails in comfort with top-of-the-line premium mountain bikes at Sherwood and Woburn Forest, or cruise with ease on one of our assisted electric bikes. There are trailers, child seats, balance bikes and stabilisers for our littlest cyclists too.

Then you’re off, exploring the forest on two wheels, soaking up the sun as the squirrels scamper alongside you.

Make a splash

But what’s a family summer break without a dip in the pool? It’s next up on your ‘must do’ list. Grab your swimming costume (or pop to Aquatique to treat yourself to something new), and step into the Subtropical Swimming Paradise. The little ones can splash around in our toddler and children’s pools, while older ones play in the waves and you relax with a Starbucks or a cocktail from The Canopy Café and Bar. Of course, watching from the sidelines only lasts so long before it’s time to corral the whole family for a ride down the Wild Water Rapids.

Row your boat

If you’re still not in the mood for dry land, it’s time to take to the lake. Try Stand Up Paddle Boarding or, if you’re staying at Elveden Forest, have a go at Water Cable Skiing – tick something off your summer 2016 bucket list! And if there are little ones in your party, you can hire a Pedalo together, or sit back and relax in an Electric Boat.

Drop in at The Pancake House to refuel after all that hard work. A fluffy American stack and an ice cold gourmet milkshake always go down a treat after a swim.

Take to the treetops

And you’ll need a good meal before you tackle Action Challenge… Head up into the treetops and find your head for heights with Aerial Adventure, where you navigate our course in the canopy. Of course, heights aren’t for everyone, so if you prefer to stay more grounded you can make a beeline for the Outdoor Activity Centre and hop on a Quadbike, zoom around the Village with Segway Experience, or see who comes out on top at Paintballing.

Come dine with us

At the end of the day, race back to your Lodge and collapse en-masse onto the comfy sofas. And when stomachs start rumbling, there’s a world of possibilities to choose from – head to Café Rouge and take a table on the terrace to enjoy a family meal as the sun goes down. Or you could fire up the barbecue on your private terrace – everything you could need, from steaks to giant marshmallows, can be found at the ParcMarket. Or if you’re simply too tuckered out, treat yourselves and order Dining In – we’ll deliver freshly prepared, restaurant-quality food to your Lodge.

Summer holidays should be about escaping the daily grind and revelling in each other’s company. This year, why not do it at Center Parcs?

Wavegarden de Eemhof - We Want Waves - Help het mogelijk maken!

Als alles volgens plan verloopt, kunnen we binnenkort dagelijks genieten van perfecte golven in Wavegarden de Eemhof!!!


Na ruim 2 jaar onderzoek, heel veel praten, plannen en lobbyen, zijn de voorbereidingswerkzaamheden inmiddels in volle gang. We hebben de juiste partners, de steun van de omliggende gemeenten en het team van Wavegarden S.L. is superstoked over onze spot.

Om onze investeerders het laatste zetje te geven, willen we aantonen dat surfend Nederland snakt naar een wavegarden. Dus wil jij ook altijd kunnen surfen op perfecte golven? Klik hier en sluit je bij ons aan: http://www.wewantwaves.nl/. Zo zorgen we samen voor de komst van Wavegarden de Eemhof!

------------------
Wavegarden de Eemhof!
Naast Center Parcs de Eemhof ligt midden in Nederland, op slechts 30 minuten rijden van Amsterdam en Utrecht, Marina de Eemhof. Op het naastgelegen Eemmeer kun je bij Eemhof Watersport & Beachclub leren wakeboarden, wakesurfen, waterskiën, flyboarden, zeilen, suppen en windsurfen. En wat een luxe… we hebben ook nog ruimte voor onze wavegarden, een camping en superchille beachcottages!

Waarom een Wavegarden?
Sinds de release van Kelly Slater's perfecte man-made-wave is de markt voor wavepools booming. Alleen al in ons kleine kikkerlandje met slechts 15.000 'echte surfers' zijn er meerdere initiatieven. Hoe gaaf is dat! Er is echter maar één partij die wavepools voor het grote publiek maakt die daadwerkelijk werken. En hoe… wij hebben op de golven van de wavegarden gesurft en oh oh oh… wat was dat genieten!!! De wavegardens die binnenkort in Texas en Melbourne openen, worden zelfs nog beter. Dat willen wij hier dus ook!

Hoe ver zijn we?
Uit ons haalbaarheidsonderzoek blijkt Nederland klaar te zijn voor een wavegarden. We hebben inmiddels dé perfecte locatie in Midden Nederland in bezit, we hebben de juiste partners, we hebben de steun van de omliggende gemeenten en last but not least: het team van Wavegarden S.L. is superstoked‬ over onze spot en doet er alles aan om ook de Nederlandse surfers binnenkort van perfecte golven te kunnen laten genieten! Het is onze doelstelling om in het voorjaar van 2018 de eerste golven te laten rollen.

Wat hebben we nog nodig?
Naast de praktische voorbereidingswerkzaamheden zijn we nog bezig met de financiering. Daarbij kunnen we jouw steun goed gebruiken. Om onze investeerders het laatste zetje te geven, willen we aantonen dat surfend Nederland snakt naar een wavegarden.

Behind the scenes: Mini Captains’ Adventure

It’s not long now until we cast off and launch our new activity, Mini Captains’ Adventure, at Elveden Forest. Your little ones will become Mini Captains, learning all the tricks of the trade as they go along – saluting, talking on a radio and the parts of a boat. As their trusty First Mate, you’ll accompany them onto the water as they steer one of our specially designed boats around the lake. Then it’s all down to them– follow your map and find the buoys to solve a maritime puzzle.

Developing the first ever watersport activity for our youngest guests meant we needed a new fleet of boats – ones designed especially for little ones. We thought we’d bring you a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of how our Creative Artworker, Sam, took the dinky new boats from sketches to substance.

A logo and a ‘look’

“As soon as I found out about this activity, I could picture how it would look straight away,” says Sam. “Some jobs are more fun than others, and this is one of my favourites that I’ve worked on.”

The first job for Sam was logo development – creating a visual identity that would make the activity stand out and also communicate straight away what it was about. “I pulled together lots of ideas around the nautical theme – boats, buoys, anchors, seagulls. I had once concept that was like looking through the end of a telescope.”

The jaunty trawler that makes up the body of the logo was hand drawn, scanned and then transformed into a digital illustration. Then Sam added finishing touches, like a captain’s hat resting on the lettering. “This is an activity for three- to seven-year-olds, so it should look playful and whimsical,” she explains.

Boats and blueprints

The next job was making the boats themselves come to life. We worked with an overseas supplier who could create bespoke miniature trawlers to our own designs. Sam received complex diagrams showing all the different parts and elements of the boats, and she set about creating a colour scheme.

“All the colours for Mini Captains Adventure are based around our Boathouse motif,” says Sam. “So I picked the blues that you’d expect, then reds and whites that are also nautical.” She played around with different colours on each element, before settling on a finished design. Each part was assigned a RAL colour – a special colour format that applies to paint manufacturing.

“Then I designed big stickers to decorate the hulls, using design elements from the logo,” says Sam. “Lastly I added a flag to each – because it’s a bit jaunty!” Now Sam’s designs and colour schemes go back to our supplier in Amsterdam to execute, before they are all shipped over (on a ship that ships tiny ships) to their final destination in Elveden Forest.

Meanwhile, Sam is still busy creating other pieces of artwork for Mini Captains’ Adventure, including certificates (to make those mini captainhoods official), posters, puzzle sheets and photo opportunity boards. “I can’t wait to see the finished activity – especially the little boats! The best part is that there’s room for an adult in them, so I’ll have to take my little niece for a ride so I can try it out myself!”

Keep an eye on Under the Treetops and our Facebook page for the official launch date of Mini Captains’ Adventure and the chance to name one of our trusty new fleet.

Anchors away!
