About Craig & Caroline Denholm

Originally from the UK, Caroline and Craig holidayed in France for several years; returning again and again. They fell in love with The Dordogne and finally decided to take the plunge and move there permanently. Having found their dream home in a converted barn, they used all their experience to transform the neighbouring farm house into delightful holiday accommodation.

Craig & Caroline Denholm purchased this cottage in 2013

It has been completely re-designed and provides self-contained accommodation with two pools, terraces and BBQ areas. Tastefully decorated and furnished throughout, the cottage provides the perfect holiday retreat and base to explore the stunning Dordogne.

One of the finest Gites available.

  • 5 of 5

La Cote de Cor is one oif the best Gites we have found and we were very comforable there for our week. Craig and Caroline greeted us warmly and showed us around. We loved the way the property had been carefully crafted into a wonderful Gite. All the rooms were lovely and clean with fresh linens and bedding provided. The kitchen offered all you need to provide good meals or simple fare. The lounge was very comfortable with the benefit of Freesat television, ideal for British guests, but French TV was also available.All the bedrooms were very comfortable.

A delightful Gite that we would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

A superb holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely pleasant two week holiday at this property. It is in a very quiet, peaceful location and was spotlessly clean, well equipped and tastefully appointed. Craig and Caroline were perfect hosts who gave us advice on restaurants and local events and who genuinely cared that we had a good experience at their lovely gite. We hope to return and would recommend this property.

Lovely countryside in a very comfortable gites.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks with our young children. There are many activities to keep you busy from canoeing, cycling and to great adventures in deep underground caves. The property was as described and much more, everything that you need in a truly beautiful part of the Dordogne. The gites was well maintained and very clean and had all with very helpful owners. We had a wonderful meal at La Table de Leo, but be sure to book. A highly recommended holiday!

Perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei erholsame Wochen in einem wunderschönen Ferienhaus in einer malerischen Umgebung verbracht. Die Unterkunft war stilvoll und sauber, die Vermieter sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Bestens geeignet für alle die mit und ohne Kinder Ruhe und Erholung fern ab von Tourismus und Trubel verbringen möchten! Viele Freizeitaktivitäten und Sehenswürdigkeiten sind mit dem Auto gut erreichbar.
