      Magical Christmas breaks

      Christmas holidays and breaks

      Christmas is a time to get together. Wake up nestled in the forest and experience a world of magic. Join us for three, four, six or seven nights between 21 December and 27 December 2023.

      In line with our commitment to protecting our forests and wildlife, we’ve made the decision not to bring back our firework displays at Center Parcs. Instead, we’re lighting up the forest with our Enchanted Light Garden- and you can visit as often as you like!
