About French Cottage Holidays

Mountains, river valleys, cosy cottages and good food and wine. The Lot valley in this area has so much to offer and we want you to experience it to the full. French Cottage Holidays is a small agency, specializing in this geographical area and aiming to give you a personal service from the moment you enquire, right through to the last moment of your stay.

2020 – 2021 has seen some significant changes for the business and Tina, who took the company over in 2014, decided to fold the French Company (French Cottage Holidays s.a.r.l. and take a step back.  French Cottage Holidays is now back under the umbrella of French Cottage Retreats Ltd. with new management on a reduced basis.  We have fewer houses to offer and owners are now responsible for managing their own properties using people of their choice.  French Cottage Retreats Ltd. is solely managing the marketing and reservations.  We do not anticipate any noticeable change for our guests and are committed to working as hard as ever to offer the best holiday experience possible.

With 7 specially selected properties to choose from, all but one with private pools and many with dramatic views, we can accommodate from 2 to 8 guests. Some larger properties have discounted rates for lower occupancy outside of peak season. All are furnished to a high standard and our all-inclusive prices cover bed linen, towels, pool towels and local taxes.

Our website has been designed to show you as much as possible of the houses and the area and we have included practical information to help you plan your trip. It is our showcase and we are always looking for ways to improve it so that we can bring this stunning area and all it has to offer right into your living room!
We look forward to welcoming you to this lesser known part of France – see you soon!
