Évian-les-Bains, France 2018 About Us

HOUSING INFORMATION

BACKGROUND:

Located in the lovely town of Évian-les-Bains on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva, the VVF Village offers a comfortable and enjoyable location for families and friends to come together to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. The resort has many great locations to fellowship and enjoy one another’s company, including a spacious bar area with a large fireplace and a terrace that wraps around the building and offers a beautiful view of the lake. Constructed in the 1960’s, the VVF Village was built as an affordable getaway for families to go on vacation together. Being as such, the rooms at the resort tend to be smaller than your typical North American hotel room. Use the link below to look at some pictures of the resort:
