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 a wider 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!

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
