Many regard Center Parcs as just a family destination. A chance for families to reconnect, to get back to nature, escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and take advantage of the outstanding leisure activities. But it’s also an ideal break for couples, groups and friends for all the same reasons.
The perfect place to unwind
For me, a break at Centre Parcs is all about perfect balance. I get to enjoy the home from home luxury of the lodges, whilst being surrounding by unending forestry which is calming and soothing in itself.
I can take advantage of the time to create carefully prepared and delicious home cooked meals, take out if I just want to slouch around in my pajamas, or venture to the well regarded restaurants on site for a treat.
There’s also the incredible Aqua Sana spa which comes highly recommend. It is the perfect place to escape- whether you’ve got a few hours or the whole day- to enjoy soothing sounds, scents and experiences.
Try new things
It’s about taking advantage of the time I get to do things I simply don’t have time for anymore, like behaving like a big kid in the subtropical swimming paradise, playing a round of crazy golf, or taking long and leisurely strolls through the forest, or hopping on a bike if I am feeling particularly sporty. It’s also a perfect opportunity to try activities I’ve yet to like archery, quad biking or aerial climbing. I can choose to do all of these things or none of them. It’s the beauty of this destination.
As a couple, Center Parcs gives you the opportunity to reconnect and spend quality time together. The activities will undoubtedly unlock unknown secrets about your partner whether as individuals or your abilities as a couple. It’s the perfect escape likely moments from your own doorstep but has the ability to feel like anywhere in the world.
The family appeal is what makes it great for friends
We can also relate to the appeal of going as a family, having had the chance to go with our own. It is simply that quality time together that somehow seems to escape us in the every day; to catch up and share in memories that will surely be treasured. And as for friends, it is purely the chance to just have some fun. Enjoy a laugh and a joke, whilst balancing it with unwinding.
Often we’ll take a trip to Center Parcs to do not much more than have long lie-ins, hearty cooked meals, deep gulps of the fresh air and exploring the forestry park. These chances are blissful in themselves as I don’t have the pressures that home can bring, a need to tackle the garden or squeeze in an extra hour of work. I can just be.
