FINDERS KEEPERS FRANCE
Hello and Welcome. We hope you will take some time to view our website, read our many reviews and enjoy the photographs. We blog regularly and can be found on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. Click here for our latest BLOG
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 currently have a one bedroom Holiday Let (Marcadis Gite) available for holiday breaks and will be opening our Glamping site May 2021. We are an Adults only site, retaining the peace and quiet for the visiting quests and 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. 2021 will see the grounds open for Jardins Ouverts (Open Gardens) and the opening of our glamping site which will be home to a small selection of canvas tents, 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.
Marcadis Gite is a one bedroom holiday let (Gite) attached to the Farm House. It is open plan with a mezzanine bedroom, lounge/diner, wet room and small compact kitchen. It has its own front and rear garden plus use of the retreats facilities and grounds. It has a log burner for cosy nights in, WIFI, French TV and a cinema with DVDs.
Walnut Grove Glamping is an orchard dedicated to canvas tents with ECO facilities to support the environment and wildlife. It will be opening its doors May 2021 with the Luna Bell tent ECO showers with dry composting toilets. It will face rolling hills which are home to a fabulous chateaux with vines. Perfect for those who love the great outdoors and Nature. The site will offer Gold, Silver and Bronze standard packages. For those who like to integrate into the environment and keep their budget low we recommend the Bronze package however for those who would like the luxury king size bed and solar lights and electricity, the Gold package is a must.

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.
