Sharon and Gregoire Megret have been living in Burgundy for many years and undertaken several renovation projects. They are proud to offer The Barn (one of three holiday properties they own) for holiday accommodation. Living and working in Burgundy for many years along with their two daughters.
Sharon MEGRET purchased this barn in 2004
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.
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.
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!
Clean and comfortable cottage in a remote area. Everything that you need for peace and quiet with history and Vineyards within a few minutes drive. The views are wonderful. Accommodating owners who were helpful but not intrusive. We stayed for a few days rest on way down to Morzine to ski. Would highly recommend and would visit again.
We spent Christmas holidays at the barn and absolutely loved it! It is set in a quiet little village which is lovely to walk around and enjoy the local feel but is close enough to many main attractions to easily do little day trips. We have a young daughter and all of the baby equipment was provided right down to the stroller which made packing so much easier. We took full advantage of Sharon's home cooked meals and they were wonderful, especially the local beef bourguignon, yummy home made pizzas and to die for desserts. We also loved the daily fresh out of the oven pastries, still warm, delivered to your windowsill. Sharon and her husband are great hosts, always there to help. There is plenty to do in the area, we particularly enjoyed the inside market in Dijon, the medieval villages of semur en auxois and noyers and the abbey of fontenay is not to be missed. Def plan a visit here, you will not be disappointed!
Enjoyed a great week at the Barn. The hosts were so lovely and very helpful, they even arranged a visit to the local vet for our dogs passport. The Welcome goodies were lovely. The Barn is set in a lovely private garden with great views. We were fortunate to have good weather so took advantage of all the local areas and vineyards to visit. Must see sights to see are Abbey de Fontenay, Flavigny sur Ozerain, Noyers and if you love wine a visit to Beaune, Chablis and Nuit St Georges are a must. The Barn is clean and well equipped for all your needs. Very relaxing break.
We stayed at the Barn two years ago and everything was just as good as we rembered on our second visit. The weather was glorious (again) and Sharon's cooking was excellent. We had a very lazy time and ate and drank far too much. The Barn is very comfortable and well appointed and particularly spacious when there are only two of you in a three bed roomed house. Surrounding countryside is beautiful in all directions and I am sure we'll be back.
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.
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 !
