FINDERS KEEPERS FRANCE
Hello and Welcome. We hope you will take some time to view our website and enjoy the photographs. We blog regularly and can be found on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
Finders Keepers is a fabulous rural retreat located in Marcadis, near Moncrabeau Southern France, on the border of Lot-et-Garonne and the Gers. It has 13 acres of rolling gardens and woodland walks with a 3 acre swimming/fishing lake. We are gradually growing the facilities, but for now we have a one bedroom Holiday Let (Gite) available for holiday breaks. We are an Adults only site due to preserving the peace and quiet for the visiting wildlife.
In 2018 we became an LPO (Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux) Refuge therefore are very passionate about the wildlife, birds, butterflies and the flora and Fauna around the retreat. 2019 saw the development of butterfly meadow, a field dedicated to plants and trees for butterflies and moths. 2020 will see the grounds open for Jardins Ouverts (Open Gardens) and 2021 will see the opening of our glamping site which will be home to a large canvas tent, positioned to take full advantage of the magnificent views and wildlife. We will blog regularly about our up and coming projects.
We do not have a swimming pool but we are blessed to have a spring fed 3 acre natural water lake with its very own swimming pontoon and relaxation area plus a smaller dipping pool.
It is ideally placed for the quietness of Nature but also within a short drive to the beautiful towns of Nerac, Condom and Mezin. Bordeaux 1hr 40 drive or 55 mins train journey (well worth a visit). Perfectly located to visit both the Lot and also the Gers.
Local airports: Bergerac, Toulouse and Bordeaux. All within a 1 hr 45 drive. Limoges airport is a 3 and a half hour drive away for those who wish to take in a spot of sight seeing prior to arrival.
Finder's Keepers, loser's weepers for sure. You will be overwhelmed with it's entirety.
What amazing hosts! Discreet yet responsive if needed.
Paula and Darren have transformed this beautiful part of France into a haven of tranquillity, beauty and a nature lover's retreat.
With nearly every possible sport you could desire in this region e.g. painting, table tennis, badminton, boules, cycling, fishing, darts, table football, archery and much more.
Fantastic walks with so much information the hosts can provide on local wildlife, not to mention the availability of scopes and binoculars.
They have a night vision one to spot those nocturnal ones and even a scope to spot the stars!
Relaxation is utmost with hammocks and seating placed in places that only the experienced would know where's best.
A truly wonderful place in an outstanding area with magnificent hosts.
A very memorable holiday.
