About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Colin & Myriam Parbery

Passionate about France, good food, simple living, design, plants and gardens. I studied in nearby Angers, (the centre of horticulture in France) some 20 years ago and Myriam in Madrid and the UK. We enjoy travelling and the discovery of alternative ways of seeing and thinking. I have worked as a guide for botanical and garden tours and if I have a specialism it is in Indian Ocean flora. We have let the cottage for the last 6 years. We live a short distance from the cottage.
