For Solo Travellers

Holidays Perfect for Solo Travellers

The unique atmosphere and environment of a Richmond holiday is one that welcomes and includes everybody into a fun, relaxing Christian community. From your initial enquiry to the final sunset at the end of your holiday, we are here to take care of you and ensure that you have the best holiday ever.

Our holidays welcome a mix of guests, including couples, solo travellers, friends and families. On some specific weeks, we have additional programmes, which are particularly popular with those travelling alone. These holidays are not exclusively for solo travellers, but are a great way to meet like-minded holiday companions while enjoying a shared hobby or learning a new skill. We carefully piece together exciting programmes in order to help everybody get to know each other and have an outstanding holiday together.

We also have weeks that are for over-18s only, so if you are looking for an adults-only break, join us at the end of August and start of September! We’d love to welcome you!

With such beautiful locations to explore, join us as we enjoy the lesser-seen parts of Samos. With varying routes for a range of abilities, enjoy seeing sights a little farther afield!

If you’ve been sailing a little while and are looking to expand your repertoire of skills on the water, our Sailing Programme could be perfect for you!

Our experienced team of RYA qualified waterfront staff will be running workshops designed to improve your sailing skills in a range of craft (including the ever-popular catamarans) and specific techniques such as sailing with spinnakers and racing.

Do you enjoy staying fit and active? Do you enjoy cycling, running, swimming or even all three? Ex-GB Triathlete, Matthew Brearley leads this newly curated adventure programme designed to stretch and encourage you in your fitness goals.

Learn more about our Multisport Activity Programme

Alongside the usual fantastic activities, we will be running our 20s and 30s Programme in Samos in July, while our 20s & 30s Programme in January is an excellent time to ski with other Christians of a similar age.

In the Summer, look out for sailing, biking and relaxing by day, followed by cocktails in local harbour towns during those endless summer evenings! Why not come for two weeks and enjoy our 18-25s Programmes the following week?

In the Winter, ski to your heart’s content in the legendary and vast Three Valleys ski area, France!

If you are looking for a Christian holiday with other young adults, these weeks are for you!

Looking for an adventure this summer? Join us this July to enjoy a tailor-made programme for young adults – think excursions to hidden beaches and local tavernas, quiz nights and pool games. Taking place just after the uni terms finish but before most schools break up, it’s a great way to kick off your summer. Parents are welcome too if you are looking for both time with family and time with friends!

Sometimes it’s nice to know that you’ll only be in the company of other adults on your holiday, which is why the first three weeks after the main school holidays are reserved for those over-18 to enjoy some Samos sun and extend the summer!

These weeks are popular with solo travellers and couples, typically (but not exclusively) in the 55+ age bracket.

Looking for a chance to relax? A chance to rest and realign? Join us during the Retreat Programme dedicated to times of prayer, worship and reflection in a setting of peace and tranquillity.

We understand that the prospect of a first ski holiday – or indeed a second or third – can be daunting, so we have created a special programme for you.

Exclusive to this programme, book your “Learn to Ski Pack” and benefit from the expertise of a local instructor dedicated to the Richmond group, as well as ski equipment hire and a lift pass, all organised for you before you arrive. Enjoy the glorious mountains with other Richmond guests of a similar level and take your skiing dreams to the next level!

Shared or Private Room?

The choice is yours! If you’re travelling alone but would like to share your room, we have a number of shared male or female rooms you can book a space in. These are shared with either one other person in Samos or two at the Chalet des Neiges.

There is also the option to have a private room to yourself. This does tend to be a more expensive option, but we understand that it is a popular choice, so we do all that we can to keep the price as reasonable and achievable as possible.

The most cost effective option is to bring a friend along (or two, or three!) to share your room! We have a range of room types to suit your requirements. Click the button below to check availability!

Do book early to ensure you get the best choice of room for your preferences. Some weeks have been known to sell out over 6 months in advance of the holiday so do get in touch early and get a quote today!
