About Colin Bergin

Joyce and I have owned La Girarderie since 1991 it required major renovation, but the tranquil location and unsurpassed views completely sold us. We aim at a friendly relaxed approachable attitude which has been our trademark and successful from the rebookings we have had over the years.

Colin Bergin purchased this cottage in 1991

Pleasant rural stay

  • 4 of 5

A very tranquil location in the heart of the French countryside ideal for rest, relaxation and winding down from a busy lifestyle. We enjoyed the pool and the enclosed garden which allowed our toddler the freedom to explore safely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
