Recent mid-week stay during the Easterbreak. Weather, accommodation and location was fantastic! We didn't have high expectations for the accommodation, but were very impressed with the facilities and the cleanliness. A very cosy, friendly and inviting atmosphere.Having never been to Center Parcs we didn't realise you can only have your car at the cottage to unload on arrival and pack on departure and that the rest of the time, your car is parked away in the parking area. At first we weren't keen on this. But the car free zone was actually a very positive thing and gave the area a real holiday feel. We thoroughly enjoyed the long walks and bike rides. All the activites and the fresh air were exhausting and we had many early nights. We would reccommend paying the €155 to hire a golf buggy for your stay, then you might have more energy to have a nice glass of wine in front of your open fire place at the end of the day. We went to Laon one morning to visit the Catherdral and have a look around the medievil town. It was ok, bit boring and choice of cafe/restaurants were limited. The only negatives at Center Parcs was the restaurants/cafe. Food was extremely expensive (3 Crepes and 3 Oranganinas= €38!!??) Maybe we are just greedy but whenever we went to the restaurants in the parc we left hungry. Supermarket/bakery was good about 1-2euros/per item more expensive than a usual shop.We enjoy a good coffee and would definately reccommend that you bring your own.... A Grande (large) Cafe Creme was the size of an espresso and not very nice and also expensive €3.80.
All in all we enjoyed the experience and would definately reccommend to our friends.
