Efteling accomodation


Witness the stunning choreographed tale of Raveleijn, where trained horsemen and swordsmen re-enact a family struggling to overthrow the evil overlord of a mythical land. With a fantasy fairy tale forest, featuring an animatronic tree which speaks and tells stories, and a host of singing mushrooms around it, children are sure to be enthralled.

Once you’ve explored the park, settle down in your comfortable, private, lakeside cabin with its self-catering facilities just outside the park, and nearby restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat. You can even order pizzas or pick them up and take them back to your cabin!

Ideal family holiday
