Welcome to the French Alps
Quality Christian Holidays
If you enjoy the tranquillity and majesty of being in the mountains, then a holiday at our chalet in Reberty Village is perfect for you.
Situated next to a beautiful meadow of wildflowers and with views as far as the eye can see, our chalet is the perfect spot for relaxing. Chairlifts can be used to quickly reach the mountain tops where you can bike or walk along the trails, taking in the breath-taking views as you go.
Don't just take our word for it!
I love the fellowship, great hospitality, accommodation, beautiful setting, fabulous food, very gracious, helpful and multi-talented staff team! The walking programme was well planned and informative.Lois, July 19, French Alps
It was an excellent holiday, Emma (the walk leader) was particularly good and the Christian ethos and friendliness amongst the staff and other guests made the holiday very special.Julie, July 19, French Alps
It was like being with family - I travelled alone with some trepidation but everyone was so friendly and inclusive. It's a wonderful area for walking and being able to share experiences and encourage each other en route. The ministry times were uplifting and it was great to be able to praise God together in such amazing scenery.Rita, July 19, French Alps
The staff were very friendly and accommodating, you could join in when you wanted or be on your own if you wanted. The food was tremendous and the other guests friendly and encouraging. Also, the Bible teaching was excellent.Christopher, August 19, French Alps
At no point did I feel alone, but I could also have space to myself too. White water rafting was amazing and the mountain walks were terrific too.Sarah, August 19, French Alps
The team were fantastic and couldn’t do enough to help make our stay wonderful, whether it was taking us out on hikes or cycle rides or organising rafting, helping with any problems or just serving us - wonderful!Rachel, August 19, French Alps

Each day, afternoon tea is enjoyed in the lounge and on the balcony overlooking the glorious mountain vista. Our chefs bake fresh cakes each day to savour with a cup of tea or coffee whilst sharing stories of your day out in the mountains or relaxing in the chalet.
We believe mealtimes are some of the most significant moments on your holidays and as such, we are one of the rare companies that offers you a full 7-day dinner service. Our three-course menu plus canapes has been refined over the years by our superb chefs.
Complimentary wine and soft drinks are served with the meal and the wines are specially selected to pair with the menu each night.
