A lakeside parc in the village of Berny Rivière by the Compiègne Forest.
Ideal as a main holiday destination or for a stopover/short break to Disneyland® Resort Paris. Set beside a meandering river and within walking distance of Vicsur- Aisne, the attractively landscaped parkland has tall poplar trees and weeping willows. The old stone farm buildings which house the restaurant and bar have been tastefully converted and the terrace overlooks the swimming pool, which features indoor waterslides and a covered pool. In addition you can hire pedalos and canoes on the small parc lake. Plus there is a lake for swimming and another for fishing. If you’re in need of some real pampering, don’t forget to book yourself into the fantastic spa and beauty therapy centre. The parc also has a ‘pub’ complex with underground disco for teenagers. The parc also boasts a new outdoor pool complex.

Some facilities remain closed in low season, please check at the time of booking if there is an activity or facility which is key for your holiday.
Offering modern facilities, this splash parc includes a pool with a retractable roof for all-weather swimming. The younger ones will enjoy the twisty waterslide and the covered paddling pool. The complex really looks the part with rocky embankments, fountains and bridges. Why not soak up the sun on a lounger or have a dip in the Jacuzzi for a really relaxing experience. Overlooking the pool, the restaurant terrace is a great place to enjoy the atmosphere.

The following local attractions are available:
Walking, cycling and pony trekking in the nearby forest are popular family outings. Compiègne, the Royal Palace of Louis XIV is well worth a visit. Disneyland® Resort Paris and the centre of Paris are just over an hour and a half drive. The huge 12th century fairytale castle dominates the village of Pierrefonds, thirteen and a half miles away.
Imagine a land where the wonderful world of Disney comes alive. Imagine a Disneyland® Park, where make believe is real. And Walt Disney Studios® Park, where the magic of Disney meets the magic of cinema. With two Disney Parks situated next to each other offering more than 50 fantastic attractions, shows and parades, a superb range of restaurants to suit every taste, spectacular entertainment and shopping. The magic is closer than you think at Disneyland Paris!
Parc Asterix delivers a uniquely Gallic twist to the theme park. There are druid stones, medieval villages, and of course the characters Asterix, Obelix and more. There are rides to suit all ages from gentle fairground rides to Europe's second biggest rollercoaster. There are plenty of shows including dolphin shows. Numerous restaurants and cafeterias for all tastes.
La Mer de Sable is an exquisite blend of games, rides, attractions and shows. A family theme park with Wild West shows, roller coasters, fairground rides and a waterpark. A great selection of restaurants and shops
The classic medieval château at Pierrefonds dominates the surrounding landscape. The Château has been restored from ruins into a imperial residence complete with turrets, towers and a moat.
Founded in 1982, the museum has become an internationally acknowledged museum of horses. 4000 square meters of floor space and 800 metres of track. It attracts over 150,000 visitors annually. Horses of various breeds are present, with riding demonstrations given 3 times a day.
The Palace and Gardens of Versailles are a must for anyone visiting Paris. It was left abandoned after the executions of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. After WWI it was restored and is now an inspiring sight. It is difficult to take in all the attractions in one visit. One can visit the Hall of Mirrors where the Treaty of Versailles was signed and also wander through the spectacular gardens.
Only 5 minutes from Disneyland, this aquarium takes visitors on a journey through the waters of the world. Breath taking displays of astonishing shapes and sizes house both freshwater and seawater creatures. The stunning centre piece is the 360 degree enclosed walk through tunnel.

Take a look at some of the local recommendations for days out and activities our customers have shared with us following their holiday at La Croix du Vieux Pont.
"I would recommend the château at Pierrefonds - the place is amazing and in my opinion has much more character than any castle in the UK."
S. Preston, Clwyd
"The château at Pierrefonds was excellent, it's open on a Sunday and under 18s are free of charge. Paris is amazing and Disneyland was great for the children but be prepared for long queues for the rides."
A. Willcocks, Cornwall
"For me two places spring to mind: Pierrefonds was amazing, the château where Merlin was filmed was stunning, as was the little village below. Also the local village Vic-sur-Aisne was beautiful, especially good on market day. The coach excursion to Disneyland Paris was very good too."
A. Barnes, Surrey
"We really enjoyed the château at Pierrefonds and the treetop adventure park."
J. Neal, Kent
"Our day trip to Paris by train was excellent. Recommend you ask at the train station about the best ticket deals, they're very helpful. If you want to go up the Eiffel Tower, get there early! We also enjoyed a boat trip on the Seine. Disneyland Paris by train was also very easy - again would recommend getting there early before the queues start to get too long, same goes for Versailles. There are some lovely gardens and little cafés to explore in the grounds. We also enjoyed the WWI trail."
P. Tye, Buckinghamshire
"We visited the Mercier Champagne House in Epernay - it was excellent."
D. Cleary, Co. Limerick
"The château at Pierrefonds is magnificent from a distance and although there's not a huge amount to see inside it's still a very worthwhile trip and our kids loved running around inside. Park Astérix a great day out - we enjoyed it far more than Disney, found it better value, shorter queues and better food. The dolphin show was fantastic! The aquarium in Val d'Europe was a good trip and the designer shopping complex there is worth a look (for window shopping!). Would also recommend the Champagne Pannier cellars in Château-Thierry, with nice people, an interesting tour and wonderful champagne! Reims is a lovely city with a magnificent cathedral and numerous champagne houses, and finally for a great meal at good prices with a fantastic host you must go to Chez Micheline in Berny Rivière itself."
E. Bunce, West Glamorgan
"La Mer du Sable was a great theme park with rides and shows. Enjoyed the Armistice clearing, was very educational, and the castle at Pierrefonds, where the tv show Merlin is filmed, was a big hit with the kids."
L. McNerlin, Kent
"Pierrefonds is well worth a visit and Disneyland Paris is a firm family favourite. Le Chemin des Dames is worth a visit for those interested in WWI. Near to site we discovered some good off-road cycle routes, and the hill opposite the parc is worth exploring to discover the caves. Fort de Condé was worth the afternoon visit too."
J. Baynes, Essex
"The town of Soissons is a short drive from the site, a nice place to eat out and affordable shopping. It's also a good idea to refuel at the hypermarket here to save money. Drove to Disney through villages to avoid toll roads and was an easy journey."
P. Forryan, Derbyshire
"1, Pierrefonds - beautiful scenery and home to BBC's Merlin. 2, Parc Astérix - in our opinion better than Disney, fewer crowds and an amazing rollercoaster ride. 3, The Armistice Clearing in Compeigne - very moving - incredible to think that two major events took place in the middle of a non-descript forest!"
P. Carbery, Middlesex
