Gilles and Zarina Berger have created la Maison de St Claire to share their love of the best of French language and culture. In April 2000, Gilles and Zarina left the rat-race life they were leading, good jobs and house by the beach in Sydney, to live harmoniously with nature in a healthy environment, becoming self-efficient and eating fresh organic food. Bringing the expertise they both have and desiring to share their love of the Australian natural environment and promote the French culture and linguistic diversity of the world they brought la Maison de St Claire into being. Gilles and Zarina have three children, Adérina , Arman and Angéline.
