Landal Greenparks is a European network of holiday villages, with locations in Belgium, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland, Denmark and England.

Background[edit]

The company owns 60 holiday villages, which contain over 10,000 bungalows. Its headquarters is in Leidschendam, in the Netherlands. Landal Greenparks has 44 holiday villages in the Netherlands, and is therefore the biggest in its kind. Of the other 16 villages, 6 contain campings, with a total of 1,500 places to stay. About 2,500 people work at the company. It is different from other companies, because it has an open character. The words quiet, space, and nature play an important role. Those terms are also the main reason why people choose it.

History[edit]

The company was founded in 1954, when the Dutch company "Nillmij" bought up the Dutch holiday village "Rabbit Hill". Initially, it was meant to sell the houses to staff of the company, but because there was only a small number of these, people from outside the company were permitted to rent a bungalow, where they could celebrate their holiday. This became attractive, and more villages built. The first village abroad appeared in 1965 in Germany.

The Nillmij company was rebranded, after several mergers since 1969, to "ENNIA". All holiday villages changed their name to ENNIA as well. In 1983, ENNIA merged with "AGO", and together, they formed the new company "AEGON". Every holiday village had to be renamed because of this merging. After several more companies merged, it was decided that the "Aegon Reacreation Holland Group" had to be sold. On July 18, 1996, all holiday villages were sold to a group of investors, who were operating as Landal Greenparks.

In 2002, Landal Greenparks acquired Beheer & Projecten (literally: Manage & Projects) from Groningen, including the management of 34 holiday villages of Gran Dorado, from Pierre & Vacances (the parent company of Center Parcs). Originally Pierre & Vacances wanted to exploit the villages by themselves, but the Dutch authority didn't allow this. When the small villages from Creative Holiday Parks (taken over from Gran Dorado resorts in 1997) were taken over by Landal Greenparks, this company became the largest of holiday villages, while Gran Dorado and Center Parcs had this title first.

The company is now part of Wyndham Exchange and Rentals, which is a business unit of Wyndham Worldwide.
