Magical Christmas breaks

Christmas holidays and breaks

Christmas is a time to get together, join us for three, four or seven nights between 20 December and 27 December 2024. Discover Winter Wonderland and Santa’s Woodland Village,  explore the forest and join in with festive activities for all ages. Why not treat yourself this Christmas and relax in Aqua Sana Spa, let us do the cooking and join us for Christmas Day Lunch in our restaurants.

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!
