Overheard: Lots of French and English accents!
It’s not an official Disney property, but Marriott’s Village d’lle-de-France is so close to Paris Disneyland that we’re going to lump it together with Disney properties. In fact, it overlooks the 27-hole course at Golf Disneyland®. Part of the Marriott Vacation Club, the resort features one-, two-, and three-bedroom townhouses (or mini French chalets), equipped with full kitchens and separate living and dining areas.
There are two pools on property. A large outdoor pool for summer use:
Lined with chaise lounges and umbrellas, plus a number of pretty sweet Bali beds (no reservations necessary).
The pool features fountains that go off sporadically (impossible to time or turn on yourself unfortunately), and around them, a circular “lazy river” like area with currents. It’s small–no rafts needed, but the current gently pushes you through the circle. The kids were understandably obsessed.
There is also an indoor pool on property, more popular in winter, but open year-round as well.
The resort photos are a bit better than ours and are worth checking out:
It’s a great place to cool off in the middle of a Paris Disney day.
