What does a winter holiday mean to you?

There are so many things to enjoy on a winter holiday! Do you agree with our favourites? Let us know what you think!

It’s the roaring fires to warm up your toes...

Is there anything more wintery than a crackling log fire, when its freezing cold outside, and you are snug, settled on a comfy sofa with a good book and a mug of delicious mulled wine or hot chocolate...?

It’s those naughty but well-deserved treats...

Hot Chocolate

“Chocolat Chaud avec Chantilly” (Hot Chocolate with cream!) is arguably the most important phrase to learn for any winter holiday! As we all know, a holiday is a great excuse to enjoy all sorts of delicious treats. How could you resist a slice of freshly baked cake when returning to the chalet each day?

It’s extra time with God...

A break from the normal weekly routine is a perfect opportunity to grow deeper in your relationship with our awesome, loving God in the setting of His beautiful creation. Each day our Ministry Leaders and Christian staff team offer times of prayer, praise and Bible-based teaching in the safe and welcoming chalet environment.

It’s the magnificent scenery...

Whether you are at a mountaintop restaurant looking over the crisp snowy skyline or walking along the icicle-lined Doron river, the winter Alpine scenery is simply stunning! The locations of both of our chalets make for ideal starting points from which to explore the Three Valleys - by ski, snowboard or on foot.

It’s relaxing in the hot tubs...

Unwind and relax in one of our hot tubs as you are served a glass of bubbly amidst the whirling massage jets. Each of our chalets has two saunas and two outdoor hot tubs from where you can look out onto the scenic mountains - a perfect remedy to soothe any aching muscles!

It’s spending time with friends... 

Richmond ski friends

Whether you are travelling with friends, family or by yourself, there are so many friendly faces on a Richmond holiday. We have daily lunch meet-ups at different locations throughout the week to ensure you’ll always have someone to ski with. Back in the chalet, catch up with fellow guests over a glass of wine and a hearty meal at our banquet-style dinner tables.

It’s skiing and snowboarding..!

There are so many great reasons to take a holiday in the Alps! Nonetheless, skiing or snowboarding remains one of the main attractions of a winter holiday - whether you favour a laid-back cruise to the next viewpoint, a high-speed blast checking off as many pistes as possible in a day or something in between!

We have everything above (and more) at our two chalets Chalet des Neiges and Chalet Elise in The Three Valleys resort, France this winter.
