The Village in the winter
In the winter, Le Village du Père Noël offers visitors a slightly different experience, but just as thrilling!
Most of the summer games (adventure trails, wall climbing, sapin à cordes, ziplines, tree house) are also available during winter. The same applies to the farm animals who are also be on hand to amaze our young visitors.
Some summer games are transformed during the cold season. For instance, the pool becomes a magnificent ice rink while the podium on stage where the magic shows take place is turned into a giant slide for parents and children to slide down on tubes. Also not to be missed: our fun kicksleds!
Concerned for the comfort of his visitors, Santa Claus has provided heated shelters where families can enjoy a picnic without freezing the tips of their noses.
The Village in the summer
At the Village, there’s something for everyone! We offer more than 40 different activities, aimed primarily at kids aged two to eight. Whether they’re cautious or adventurous, children can discover new activities each year that suit their changing interests and personality, making each visit a unique experience.
As soon as they arrive at the Village, visitors are greeted by our friendly staff, who have been chosen for their warm smile, love of children and caring nature. At this time, children are given a name tag so that Santa and his team can call them by their name, which adds to the magic of the experience.
When you arrive at the Village, you and the other members of your group should agree on a meeting point in case one of you gets separated.
Slides and water games
At Le Village du Père Noël, nothing beats our water games for pure refreshing fun!
The Village has two specially adapted water slides that allow youngsters from 2 to 8 years to have loads of fun and slide in total safety. Unlike water slides for adults, the Village slides do not end on a body of water, but on a safer surface for little ones. So, yes: Santa Claus has thought of everything! A first waterslide introduces them to the joys of the sliding on water while the second is designed for stronger sensations. Good news: Mom and Dad can accompany their children and slide in duos!
You simply want to relax in the water? Try our wading pool!
The Village has over 20 stations where children can climb, pull themselves up, slide, squeeze through… in short, have fun and challenge themselves, while burning their excess energy!
The Village also offers a training centre for elves! Since all young kids dream to one day accompany Santa Claus and help him to distribute his gifts, they can prepare for the task at the Village by climbing a wall in the shape of a chimney and going up a giant staircase. An electromagnetic retaining device allows them to develop their skills in complete safety.
In the Village, it is possible to get up close and personal with many farm animals: goats, sheep, miniature horses, ponies and pigs. Walking among the animals, the whole family can enjoy the surprising beauty of nature and its animal life.
Every day at 1:30pm during summer, Jeremy James, our in-house magician, puts on a short magic show with Christmas as its theme. This period of calm allows the children to “recharge their batteries” after a good meal.
Santa Claus’ home
Santa Claus welcomes the little ones to his residence where he receives their gift list. Learn about the ritual of the pacifier.
The Ritual of the pacifier
Twenty-five years ago, the Village gave birth to a unique custom, when Santa Claus decided one day to collect babies’ pacifiers in a large drawer of his summer residence.
If your child is on the point of giving up their pacifier and just needs a little encouragement, this could be the moment! Parents can prepare their children by explaining that if they give their pacifier to Santa Claus he will take real good care of it.
