We understand how special a family holiday can be and we want to provide you with the setting and resources to build those happy memories that can last a lifetime. Our family-friendly resorts offer fun sporting activities, including watersports in the summer and skiing in the winter. Richmond runs clubs for children, teens and students (16-25 yrs). These are led by Richmond staff teams and include Christian ministry sessions suitable for each group.
What do our summer holidays offer your family?
...Somewhere with Children’s Clubs for my under-12s.
This Summer you can take advantage of Richmond’s fantastic Children’s clubs at our resort in Samos and in the French Alps. Led by our responsible and fun Christian team, the club provides children aged 4-11 the chance to take part in active outdoor games and crafts each morning. In Samos the activity clubs also run in the afternoon, after lunch.
In the evenings, the children’s workers will lead age-appropriate Bible teaching running during the main ministry time. Following ministry, whilst you enjoy your evening meal, the Richmond team can supervise the children who don’t need to be in bed just yet! Read the full details here.
In Samos and Reberty we offer discounts for children under-12 sharing triple or four-bed rooms with their parents/guardians or older siblings. For details on child/teenager accommodation prices, please see the supplements table found on the Dates and Prices page for each resort.
...Somewhere to keep my teenagers entertained.
Our Teens Club for those aged 12-17 is run by our Christian Richmond staff in Samos and in the French Alps throughout the summer holidays.

In Samos this summer, Richmond is running two weeks aimed at students. From 7th July – 21st July our Christian student workers will be leading a tailored programme for those aged 16-25. This will include evening trips to local towns and sporting opportunities both on and off the water. This will be a chance for your children to relax and unwind with other students following their hard work over the summer term. Read the full details here.
...Somewhere with a beautiful beach and quality watersports.
We have a RYA (Royal Yachting Association) recognised watersports centre at our beach resort in Samos, run by our fully qualified Richmond staff. Use of all the sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding equipment is included In the price of your holiday. We do offer the option of RYA lessons, led by an RYA instructor, where you can obtain youth and adult stages in dingy sailing and windsurfing. Read more about our watersports centre in Samos.
What do our ski holidays offer your family?
...Somewhere we can enjoy skiing without worrying about the kids.
In both our resorts we have child supervision available throughout the season and children’s ministry during the school holidays.
As part of the child supervision service in resort, our staff will take your children to morning lessons, pick them up, give them lunch and look after them till 2pm for five days a week. So, you can go out skiing for the day knowing your kids are looked after and learning how to ski.
You can also opt for your children to have an earlier children’s tea. In high season weeks (the main school holidays), Richmond also runs age-appropriate children’s ministry at the same time as the adult ministry. Following ministry, the Richmond staff can supervise an evening activity, for those under-12s who ate before ministry and are not yet ready for bed, while the adults have their evening meal.
...Somewhere for beginner skiers.
You can book group lessons, from beginner to advanced, from either the Reberty or Bettaix resort.
Adult beginner lessons and all children’s ski school lessons in Reberty operate from just opposite the chalet, so it is very easy to find. If staying in Bettaix, you will need to take the ski lift up to les Menuires to get to the ski school; on the first day the staff team can provide a lift from Bettaix to the ski school.

...Somewhere for experienced skiers in a huge ski area.
If quality and scale is what you’re after as a family, then the Three Valleys ski area (the largest in the world!) is a fantastic choice. You’ll need more than a week to see it all!
