The Owners of FinderskeepersFrance
Darren and Paula

Bonjour.

We are a husband and wife team who are the owners of Finders Keepers France. We moved to the South of France back in 2016 after working in the Medical branch of the Royal Navy. Passionate about the outdoors, nature and France our vision is to offer a rural retreat for those needing a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Surrounded by views, wildlife, and silence, Finders Keepers France allows guests to recharge, refresh and relax whilst enjoying the facilities we have to offer. Independently developing and maintaining the business has allowed us to offer a personal touch and natural feel whilst retaining its rustic natural charm.

Becoming an LPO refuge (Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux) in 2017 provided us with the knowledge and support to develop the grounds to protect the visiting wildlife, monitor potential hazards, and restore natural habitats. The increase in wildlife habitats and nesting boxes around the grounds has resulted in an increase in many species of animals, including an endangered European Mink.  

The development of a butterfly meadow has seen a huge increase in butterfly's and moths, and Participating in Open Gardens has seen the gardens open to the public once a year, raising money for local charitable causes.

We are always on the look out for new adventures and new developments, and are known locally for adopting animals in need. Currently we have adopted some ex battery hens, 3 rescue cats and 1 rescue dog. 

We hope we can meet you all soon.

Darren and Paula
