Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday barn in Montbard area - The Barn at Frolois

A 3 bedroom property, Sleeps 5 with stunning views across the valley

A new barn conversion offering comfort, peace and tranquillity in this small village nestling deep in the countryside of the Cote d'Or. Light, bright accommodation furnished to the owners high standards, sleeps 5 in an elegant double room with ample storage coordinating furniture and an en-suite shower room, a spacious twin room with great views, storage and an en-suite shower room, and a single bedroom with a WC and basin. A staircase leads downstairs to the open plan living area with fully fitted kitchen, dining for 6 and comfortable lounge area with TV and DVD player. 2 sets of French doors open onto a wooden decking terrace with outside dining for 6 and BBQ. The lower garden terrace has sun loungers ready to enjoy the views of the village below. Discover all that Burgundy has to offer with sites and restaurants a short drive away.

There is much to see and do in this part of France. Within 15 minutes drive is the beautiful Flavigny-sur-Ouzerain, the Roman ruins at Alesia and its new visitor centre. The Château of Bussy Rabutin, the source of the Seine river, great for picnics, and Venarey les Laumes for your everyday needs are all close by. Within 30 minutes are Semur en Auxois, Montbard with fabulous swimming pool complex, The Parc d'Auxois (zoo and adventure park) and the 13C world famous Abbaye de Fontenay. Further a field is historic Dijon, Beaune and Nigloland (theme park). Nearly everyday of the week there are local markets, and no visit to Burgundy would be complete without a wine tasting. A perfect base for exploring the region.

The owners offer a shopping service to make your arrival pain free, and home cooked meals are available made to order by the owner. Enquire about available choices. Also bespoke menus can be created by prior arrangement for you and your family. If you would like to travel with extended family or friends, have a look at our sister property 1381682 on this website. Or burgundyhideaways.co.uk

Fresh bread is baked daily and available for delivery to the window sill.

Free WiFi for you to use.

The owners live in the house next door, they can provide information on all the local attractions, and arrange private wine tastings nearby.

Our younger guests are just as important to us. To make their stay comfortable we have a lovely cot (and a second travel cot is also available) with a new mattress and pretty linens. We also have a high chair, toddlers chairs, Baby-Dan play pen, changing mat, microwave oven, plastic cups and plates, baby listening monitor, step for bathroom, potties and a selection of toys and books for all ages. Bespoke children's meals can be provided by the owners by prior arrangement. A toddler paddling pool is available for hot days for the terrace area. Please ask if you need other specialized equipment provided.

About Sharon MEGRET

Sharon and Gregoire Megret have been living in Burgundy for many years and undertaken several renovation projects. This is their latest, and one they are proud to offer for holiday accommodation. Living and working in Burgundy along with their two daughters.

Sharon MEGRET purchased this barn in 2004

Why Sharon MEGRET chose Montbard area

We feel this property offers everything needed for a comfortable 'Home away from home' holiday. When we are looking for a holiday house to use for our family, we look for value for money and above all comfort, and we believe this offers both. Frolois is a superb base for exploring the region and peaceful enough for relaxing and enjoying the view.

What makes this barn unique

We feel The Barn offers stylish interiors and comfort without costing the earth. This peaceful village has picturesque charm with stunning views. Hours can be spent taking in the beautiful surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've just had an amazing stay here at the Barn! Thank you so much, Sharon & co for making it so special - every little detail.......the decor, the welcome package, the lovely toiletries. Oh and the Boeuf Bourguignone you cooked for us was just divine! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!



P.S. We would love to come back for a weeks trip next time. Pack light if you have children as everything we needed for our 18 month old son was thought of for us. Truly a treat!

Beautiful, stunning and delightful gite

  • 5 of 5

The gite was beautiful and well equipped. We stayed with older parents and teenage daughter so really appreciated the ensuite bathrooms which were modern and clean. The outside decking was delightful as we had amazing weather and enjoyed sitting out overlooking stunning views. Sharon was very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed her home cooked meals and croissants. The location is rural and you do need a car, however this is what makes the gite a delight. We visited Flavigny where they filmed Chocolat. Dijon has a lovely Owl trail walk. Sharon provides excellent information on places to visit which we did; Chablis market, Noyers, Fontennay Abbey, Boussy Chateau and not to be missed a visit to our favourite shop Maison du Monde found in the la toison d'Or shopping centre. Thank you Sharon and family for an enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Sally for your review. These short reports help our future guest make the right choice when deciding on a holiday home. It was a pleasure to meet your Family (and it's 3 generations!) and I hope your time in Paris afterwards was as much fun as you hoped it would be. We look forward to welcoming you back to Burgundy one day, or Holly could bring some of her friends for some girly pampering (Yes, I can arrange that too!) Here at The Barn, we wish you all an enjoyable summer.

The Barn

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Sharon couldn't have been more helpful, and her catered food when we wanted was out of the world! The Barn was spotless and well equipped for the week. We loved the sheep we saw from the patio... Even a black sheep! It was a relaxing place to come home to after a long day of exploring.

Worth every minute !

Renovated Barn in Charming Area of Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

The Barn was a special place to stay in Burgundy. The area is a treasure trove of towns to visit, roads to travel and attractions to see and experience. We found the location to be centrally located and an easy drive to Dijon, Beaune and, even though Sharon thought we were crazy, only a 3 hour drive to Geneva!

We relaxed and were able to spend our days driving through the scenic countryside on our way to many places of interest. It is imperative to have a car, although we turned ours in prior to boarding our train in Dijon to Paris.

Our family found the week to be relaxing and more than we could have imagined. The Barn was a comfortable home for us and we shared many good times and created many memories while it was our home.

Sharon, we will be back!

A thoroughly relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a cottage in Burgundy to have a quiet and relaxing week. The Barn did not disappoint. The facilities are excellent and the local area is beautiful.

It is hard to add anything new to the already excellent reviews. We had a young baby with us and everything we asked for was provided such as baby bath and highchair. Sharon, the owner, was fantastic and cooks a mean beef bourguignon, pizza and tiramisu. It is well worth ordering.

We loved our holiday so much that we came back three weeks later. The Barn was already booked but we snapped up Sharon's brand new property just up the road - La Petite Maison, which was also brilliant.

Fantastic Barn in Burgundy

  • 5 of 5

Four of us visited this lovely property. The Barn has everything you need for a very comfortable stay in rural France. It is an ideal location for exploring places in Burgundy - Dijon, Beaune, Semur-en-Auxois, Fontenay Abbey and Flavigny. Sharon is a brilliant, but unobtrusive, host living next door and her wonderful home cooked meals (especially the Boeuf Bourguignonne) are very welcome after a long journey or a day's sightseeing. The Barn is fantastic value for money and we would all love to return some day. We have no hesitation in recommending the property for a stay in Burgundy. Sue L.

Beautiful property-highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with this property. Extremely well designed, decorated and maintained. The owners next door are very helpful and the home cooked meals you can pre-order are an extra special touch. Property is well positioned to explore the nearby sights, including Chablis, Abbaye de Fontenay, Beaune, Flavigny, Semur. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to others.
