Retreat holiday with Dr Micha Jazz

This special retreat offers a five day break from Monday to Friday, with departure on Saturday. Children are welcome but there is no children’s programme this week.

Join Dr Micha Jazz and his wife Jayne for five days of holiday and retreat at our French holiday park.

At Le Pas Opton, relaxation and refreshment are always a top priority. So these five recreational days will give you all the usual holiday opportunities – great food and drink, four-star holiday facilities and quality accommodation in a Christian environment.

The Retreat Holiday offers far more, however. It’s an opportunity to step away from the everyday and invest time in exploring your faith with the support of an experienced Retreat Guide. You can make this a personal retreat or join a small group for discussion and prayer.

“Over the past few years my wife Jayne and I have enabled many people to find new rhythms, greater depth and fresh life in their relationship with God” says Dr Jazz. “My first LPO experience in 2022 was a delight and I'm looking forward to sharing with guests there again in a unique holiday environment.”

Words like meditation, contemplation and retreat are not normally found at the heart of the evangelical vocabulary. But Dr Jazz promises to explain their value and help guests explore and discover their spiritual benefits, perhaps for the first time.

Micha will also lead a daily communion service in the morning and the evening office of Compline for all who wish to join.


Choose from a wide range of accommodation including villas, mobile homes or a Luxury Tent. All of our accommodation options are comfortable and equipped with everything that you need for a relaxing holiday.


Prices start at just £300 for accommodation in a Luxury Tent or £350 to stay in a mobile home. That's per unit for the whole retreat, not per person! All bookings include a free Dover-Calais ferry crossing and access to the full programme of activities, the optional spiritual programme and all the on-site four-star facilities.

Prices for solo travellers start at £155, not including ferry. Call or email us for more information.


From the swimming pool to the relaxing Vendée Vous café, there are plenty of facilities to enjoy at Le Pas Opton. Enjoy a pizza from the takeaway, wine from the bar or take a walk down by the river. Le Pas Opton has everything that you need for a relaxed holiday! Take a look at what facilities are offered at Le Pas Opton here.
