Efteling

We just LOVE this spot, a stunning Theme Park and just magical wonderland in The Netherlands, everyone just has to go there at least once!

These trips are self-catering, with daily entry to the park included in each price. Also as usual, flights are not included but you should book to fly into Eindhoven airport and transfers to Efteling will be taken care of.

This place has everything you might expect of a traditional Dutch countryside. Windmills, tulips and some beautiful scenery, depending on what time of year you decide to visit you might experience the magical Winter in Efteling, when everything is blanketed in snow, but so much more than that is waiting for you.

Your accommodation is a self-contained private apartment with 1 bedroom, sleeping up to four comfortably, just a few minutes walk from the Resort and Theme Park. Your package includes entry to the Park for all the days of your stay, and it still might not be enough time.

Endless entertainment, rides, shows, and everything your children could dream of is just everywhere, and there are no charges for the rides, they’re all included in your entry to the Park!

Fairy Folk, Gnomes and Goblins are scattered all over the Park, telling stories and quietly going about their business in this enchanted location.

A Roller Coaster ride called The Baron is 130 seconds of thrills and excitement. You, the ‘Miners’ are on a 37.5m free fall into the mining shaft to search for gold, then there’s a half-loop, a weightless-inducing corkscrew roll, and then you’re safely deposited back to earth. Not for the faint-hearted.

Another roller coaster is a double-wooden track, with riders on each, both competing in a race to the finish. A Dragon with power over water and fire threatens the kingdom, so you must protect your king!

If something more serene is your thing, then head to the flying Thai Temple, which will gently raise you above the park and rotate, so you can see all the places you’ve already visited that day, before slowly descending back to earth.

Another lovely quiet activity is a cruise on the lake or a trip on the Park Steam Train.

But now a look into your gorgeous apartment. This has one double bed in a nook beside the living and kitchen areas, with a set of bunk beds in a separate bedroom, and bathroom with bath & shower combo.

A water show like no other is celebrated throughout your stay, with spectacular lights and music co-ordinated with water jets and culminating in an eye-popping display to end your day at the park.
