Language study vacation for the whole family in the Swiss Valais

The beautiful language camp of friLingue is in Liddes, in the idyllic Lower Valais: Every season we invite children and young people from all over the world to come to Switzerland and work with us on their English, French or German.

But the parents don't have to stay at home! The whole family is welcome in our family language stay!

Do you want to combine something useful with a lot of fun? A pinch of mountains and then spaghetti Bolognese from the friLingue kitchen - and the family vacation is perfect.

We offer the following perfect family vacation options:

- Accommodation
- Accommodation + language course
- Accommodation + language course + excursions
- Accommodation + language course + excursions + evening program

Depending on how motivated the parents are, they can decide where and how they want to spend their time in our camp. You can find more options under "Prices & Dates".

Accommodation during your family language stay

The parents live in our hostel in Bourg St Pierre (5 minutes by car from the chalet) in single, double or family rooms.

If you have a car, we recommend that you take the car with you. If not, our Campleaders will take over the transportation service.

The children decide for themselves whether they prefer to live with their parents or whether they are big enough to spend the night in the chalet.


Our friLingue camp kitchen is known throughout the language travel world for its quality. The majority of children think that our food is very good. That is quite something!

You can also decide for yourself when eating:

Half board, full board? Do only the kids eat in the camp?


We organize workshops two afternoons a week: theater, media, sports, photography, graffiti, cooking, hiking etc.

The workshops are designed for children and teenagers. Nevertheless, parents can also participate.

Another option is of course to discover the beautiful surroundings.

The excursions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and on Saturday lead to Aosta, La Fouly, Martigny, Sion, up the mountains (hikes), to the mountain lakes, to the climbing park.

Airport transfer

Besides that, we will pick up the family at the Geneva airport and bring it back at the end of its stay.

We recommend you to be part of these highlights!

The young participants stay in the Chalet Le Relais de Dranse in shared rooms or (optionally) in smaller rooms. It has a spacious garden and a huge lounge with billiard and ping pong table. The chalet was renovated in 2014 and is located in the charming community of Liddes on the banks of the Dranse. Surrounded by idyllic nature and the Swiss Alps all around, it is ideal to relax here - or to hone your foreign language skills.

The parents are accommodated in our charming hostel in Bourg St. Pierre or can find their own place to stay. The hostel is less than 5 minutes away by car from the chalet (transportation is provided by friLingue) and has single, double and family rooms.

So that you can benefit as much as possible from the languages, our workshops are mostly multilingual.

Our fun evening activities include disco night, karaoke evening, card and board games, casino, movie night, campfire, zombie & werewolf games, sardines, reverse hiding, and much more.


Half-day trips
After lunch, head to one of the nearby exciting locations near the St. Bernhard camp. This includes:
Champex - a pretty little village on a fairytale lake.
Col du St. Bernard - the famous historical pass that Napoleon and Hannibal have crossed in their respective eras. A must if you are in the region of the Great St. Bernhard! And not to forget: the famous St. Bernard dogs!

The salt mines in Bex sound boring? Not at all! Descend with us into the dark pit and discover the fascinating labyrinth of salt mines.
The La Fouly adventure park is a beautiful complex where you can really let off steam. Definitely an unforgettable experience!

Full-day trips
The Aletsch Glacier is possibly the most physically demanding excursion that awaits you, but you can believe us: the breathtaking view is worth every drop of sweat.
Sion - a town less than an hour's drive from Camp St. Bernhard. With its rich history and a fortress in the center, it is definitely worth a visit.

The Aosta Valley is an exciting excursion location in northern Italy, where you can experience the beauties of the Italian lifestyle up close with your new friends. This includes hiking, rafting and, of course, the pizza for dinner in one of the world-famous restaurants of Aosta.

The Emosson Dam is an architectural masterpiece with pretty hiking trails and incredible panoramic views.

Two excursions during the week in the afternoon and a full-day excursion on Saturday are included in the stay. We discover the sights and beauties of Lower Valais together.
