Patrick and Francine Violas
Patrick Violas was a cowherd on a dairy farm in Fresnay l’Evêque, where he met his wife Francine. He then joined the Lamirault Automobiles group, rising through the ranks until finally becoming Sales Director. In the 80s, when cell phones were just starting to emerge, he founded 5/5, a mobile carrier. After selling the business, he and Francine rekindled their first love – for animals, with their animal refuge, the Tanière.
