The Anglo-French Houseparty

Join like-minded Christians from the UK and France for a week of sunshine, relaxation, socialising and spiritual refreshment. Enjoy all the resort amenities you need and easy access to nearby beaches and picturesque coastal towns.

We'll be providing French translation on headsets, for the morning and evening meetings. We're expecting an increasingly wide mix of guests and an exciting, international atmosphere.

Make the most of the late summer warmth after children have returned to school - enjoy peace around the pool and riotous late night karaoke!

2024 FLYER: download the flyer here; email [email protected] if you'd like us to post you some to share with friends.


The Houseparty is the only week that features special excursions and meals that must be booked in advance. To see what was arranged in 2023, the booking form is here. The full 2024 programme will be finalised nearer the time.

As well as these meals and excursions that must be booked in advance, there will be many other activities to participate in as you choose:

  • Bike rides and walks
  • Morning Bible study and evening teaching and worship
  • Pub quiz, karaoke, film night
  • Late night opening licensed bar
  • On-site sports tournaments
  • A shuttle bus to the beach, hypermarket and local town

      Travel Options

      Travel by coach

      Your holiday begins the moment you step aboard our luxury coach on Sunday 1st September. Our on-coach courier will make sure you are looked after at all times.

      You’ll sail with award-winning Brittany Ferries, overnight from Portsmouth on board Bretagne, to the historic port of St Malo. On-board dining is of the highest standard including the Les Abers buffet/restaurant, always popular with Houseparty guests. Choose from an en-suite cabin or a reclining seat.

      Pickup points are in Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol, or of course you can meet us in Portsmouth.

      The coach returns from Le Pas Opton on Monday 9th September and arrives in the UK on Tuesday 10th, cruising aboard Mont St Michel overnight from Caen at 23:30.

      Tickets are only £120 single and £210 return. A berth in a shared en-suite 2-berth cabin (with bunk beds) starts at £31 per person each way, whilst an en-suite cabin to yourself starts at £61 each way. Alternatively, a reserved seat is just £5.

      You can reduce your journey to a matter of hours by choosing to fly across the channel. Nantes is the nearest airport to LPO (one hour's drive, with transfers available) while Rennes and La Rochelle are two hours’ drive away. See more info here.

      Local train stations at nearby Challans and St Gilles connect with the high speed French TGV network at Nantes.

      If you book a whole unit of accommodation with us, your Dover-Calais ferry crossing is included. We are also able to book your ferry crossing if you’re a solo traveller – just give our friendly Customer Service team a ring.
