Travellers aged 55+

Are you in your 50s, 60s, 70s or beyond and want to enjoy an unforgettable summer holiday in a beautiful location?

Throughout May, June and September in Samos plus July in the French Alps, the majority of our guests are over the age of 55! Our holidays offer a friendly and safe environment to come along and meet like-minded people, in picturesque locations and comfortable accommodation. As a traveller aged 55+, you are welcome to join us on any week you wish, however, our Themed Weeks which fall outside of main school holidays are particularly ideal.

A Themed Week with Richmond has fellowship at the heart of the holiday. These weeks are appropriate and aimed at (though not limited to) those aged 55+ and offer a fantastic opportunity to get to know others, develop your skills or just rest and enjoy time with the Lord. Time and time again we chat with guests booking their holiday with friends they met on a Richmond Holiday in previous years!

All of our usual activities are still running during all of these Themed Weeks. In Samos, come along and enjoy sailing, biking, kayaking or walks to local villages, taking part in the additional ‘theme’ as much or as little as you like. We also have wonderful excursions on offer including trips to peaceful Kokkari, historical Ephesus and harbour-side Pythagoria. In the French Alps, take a trip to a local farmers market to sample the local produce, enjoy our weekly BBQ-with-a-view at the charming Plein du Lou, or challenge yourself to “hydro-speeding” (for the brave!)

So, if you are aged 55+ and want to enjoy a summer holiday in a safe and welcoming environment, why not join us on one of the Themed Weeks below?
