Voyager School Travel are pleased to announce the opening of our new centre on the outskirts of Paris in the peaceful town of Villecresnes, 45 minutes from the centre of Paris and 20 minutes from Disneyland Paris.
The Etoile Parisienne Centre offers a fabulous standard of accommodation, ideal for school groups and exclusive to Voyager clients. The 20 acres of grounds also provides the ideal opportunity for students to run around and let off steam, in a safe, car-free and natural environment.
Schools are welcomed by our experienced and friendly Voyager team and can look forward to a level of service and standard of facilities not previously seen by U.K. schools in the French capital.
Service levels are identical to those at our Chateau de la Baudonniere in Normandy, which has been welcoming schools since 1991. The centre acts as the base for our Paris Parle French Immersion programme, with a team of native French animateurs on site. However, the centre is also open to groups who simply want to stay at a Parisian centre that is exclusively geared to the needs of UK schools.
Thanks to its superb local transport links, Etoile Parisienne is ideally located for visiting Central Paris, as well as other Parisian attractions such as Disneyland Paris, Versailles and Parc Asterix. The pretty, safe town of Villecresnes is the ideal location for a school centre, with shops and a typically French market in the town square with a local population, who, in the words of the Marie, will make us “very welcome”.
The Etoile Parisienne offers a superb standard of accommodation for school groups, including en-suite facilities for all, twin and multi-bedded rooms, plus 2 rooms specifically equipped for disabled guests.
One of the centres key strengths is its facilities, including:
The Etoile Parisienne is located at the heart of the town of Villecresnes’ state of the art sports facilities, including Olympic swimming pool, tennis courts, sports track and football pitches. Thanks to our close links with the local mayor and his team, not only can we offer preferential access to these facilities, but we can also organise matches with local French schools who are keen to compete against their Anglo Saxon cousins.
The centre is the base for our Paris Parle French immersion courses, where our team of native French animateurs encourage your students to speak French at every opportunity, including on excursions, during activity sessions and at meal times. However, the centre is also the ideal venue for groups simply looking for accommodation, which is exclusive to schools and geared to meet their needs. The centre also provides the ideal venue for our programme of Evening Ents, including Tournoi de Sport, French Spectacular, Town Trails, Treasure Hunts and more, all delivered by our team of animateurs.
Both the 'behind-the-scenes' and animateur teams expect to deliver high levels of service to all our guests. The majority of our team will be native French speakers, delivering an authentically French experience. You will never have difficulty making yourself understood, but we try to encourage all our guests to speak French at every opportunity.
This prestigious Campus, set in 94 acres of landscaped gardens and private forest, is ideally situated on the outskirts of Paris and only 15 minutes from Disneyland.
All twin, three and four bedded rooms are en-suite, with group leaders accommodated in single rooms wherever possible. The fabulous on-site facilities include meeting rooms, library, classrooms, IT rooms and an amphitheatre.
The excellent leisure and sports facilities include basketball, volleyball, rugby and football pitches, table tennis and fitness room.

The programme of activities was varied to suit our particular needs – we went for a cross-curricular approach giving us a good range of linguistic and physical activities. The food was wonderful – we ate calmars, vol au vents au poisson, dinde à la crème and lovely picnics.
