Come and celebrate the Spirit of Life with us

L’Chiam Cottage is a cosy, 3-bedroom house and honey-moon suite, situated in the Bergview Estate, a controlled access area in Champagne Valley.

The private garden is home to many bird species, and overhead you may expect to see eagles, vultures, and smaller raptors. Guests may also encounter small buck, and the odd porcupine. Monkeys and baboons are also regular visitors.
