We've just returned from a week at the new Walnut Tipi at Finders Keepers France and wanted to share our thanks for such a wonderful experience. The new Tipi is beautifully located with the most peaceful and tranquil views, hidden amongst the walnut grove and surrounded by nature. We didn't want for anything whilst we were there, the Tipi was kitted out with everything we needed and more, including all of our cooking needs. The robes were a lovely touch, especially when moving between the shower block and the Tipi.

There are so many gorgeous spots around the site to sit/explore but I think our favourite was the private Tipi deck followed closely by the dipping pool and the Shady Rest café.

Darren and Paula are fantastic hosts, there if you need them and providing everything you need for a brilliant stay. We really loved out chats at the Shady Rest, enjoying a posh coffee or a beer.

What's not to love when you wake up to stunning french views and fall asleep to the sounds of nature's nightscape under beautiful solar lights and canvas!! Camping will never be the same :)

Rooms: 5/5, Service: 5/5, Location: 5/5

The Tipi was beautiful with a full size double bed, really good quality linens with towels and robes provided. We had a sealable trunk for any food stuffs we wanted to keep down at the tent and a lovely wooden unit containing all of our crockery, utensils and glassware. The drawers under the bed gave us more than enough storage for our stay and it never felt cramped at all. There were comfy chairs to sit inside, rugs on the floor for comfort under foot and simple but really effective solar lightening inside and out which were all remote controlled.

There is lots to do nearby if you have a car and a really handy board in the Shady Rest lists some key things happening while you're there. We recommend the Nérac Night market - we had a great night eating fabulous food and listening to live music on the banks of the river. The markets at Nérac, Lectoure and Mezin were also really good visits and have some lovely Churches to wander around. We paid for a tour of the Chateau Henri IV in Nérac which was a great way to learn more about the significance of the area and the history of the town and Chateau. There were guides and handouts in English which allowed us to get the full experience. We loved it and always visit this town multiple times during our stay. Closer to Moncrabeau we had some fantastic Burgers at Le Mouliat and you can also rent Kayaks from this point, leaving and returning to the same spot just under Moncrabeau, which is also a cute village to have a little wander and a drink.

Great view, Romantic, Quiet, Great value

Paula nous a accueillie de manière charmante et nous a fait visiter le lieu. L’endroit est plein de charme et très bien entretenu. Nous étions pour un mariage dans la région et nous avons trouvé à Finders Keepers tout le calme que nous souhaitions. Nous avons loué le studio / gîte qui est parfaitement équipé et spacieux. Il bénéficie d’une terrasse et d’un coin barbecue. La ballade jusqu’au lac est charmante. Mention spéciale pour l’entretien du jardin qui est digne d’un très beau jardin anglais. Paula et Darren sont des personnes adorables. Nous avons pu nous reposer et oublier le bruit de la ville quelques jours dans ce petit coin de Paradis. Merci à tous les 2 pour cet endroit pas comme les autres et plein de bienveillance. 👏👍😊

C'était notre deuxième séjour chez Paula, et nous sommes contents d'être revenus ! Le logement est paisible, le cadre est beau et calme, c'est tout ce que nous cherchions pour un week-end de repos. Le logement est charmant et bien équipé, et Darren sur place est très accueillant. Je recommande !

Thank you Paula and Darren for such a fabulous stay in your lovely gite. The location is idyllic and the gite is so well equipped - it really is a home from home! Your company and hospitality was also fab and really added to our weekend. P.S. Your cats and dogs are a delight and a constant source of entertainment!
