Church events

For groups, we have some 85 beds in bedrooms and dormitories (and tents can also be accommodated). We also have two separate kitchens suitable for group catering and a number of meeting rooms.

We are very happy to welcome churches wishing to organise retreats, seminars, Alpha weekends, choir sessions, worship events and church gatherings.

Our accommodation is mostly rented out on a self-catering basis, with groups responsible for organising their own meals, using an outside caterer if they so wish. However, the recent arrival of a cook at Courmettes means that we can also offer fully catered arrangements.

We can recommend caterers with a range of prices who will find good conditions in which to work on site.

If churches so wish, we can offer evening talks and presentations on A Rocha’s activities, creation care, climate change and questions of ‘science and faith’. Our resident pastor, René can offer activities relating to spiritual matters. We can also organise bird-watching sessions or guided nature activities for your group enabling you to benefit more from the beauty of the site and the experience and skills of the resident A Rocha team.

Discovery weeks

We are offering the opportunity for Christian groups to spend a week’s holiday at les Courmettes, discovering the rich environment of the Domaine as well as the wider area. Discovery weeks run from late afternoon Sunday to Saturday morning, for groups of 15 or more guests. They can be ‘customised’ with a range of various activities. More details
