THE BARN. A STYLISH CONVERSION. SLEEPS 5 IN COMFORT.

Frolois Barn Rental Photos and Description

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.

There is a bread van that visits the village, and can stop outside the house each day. There is also a van that comes selling charcuteries and cheeses on a Wednesday morning.

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 specialised equipment provided.

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!

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

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.

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING BURGUNDY BARN

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at the barn - so relaxing! It has beautiful views of the woodland valley, a well-thought out terrace, and the interior has been well-equipped and decorated with style. There are lots of great places to visit within 30 minutes drive, and the barn itself is so lovely its great to come back to to just spend time there as well. The barn is well-equipped for small children (ours are 5 and 2), and Sharon's welcome is excellent - we especially loved details like the option to have fresh bread delivered every morning. The barn is superb value for money and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

WONDERFUL STAY AT THE BARN AT FROLOIS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks at the Barn at Frolois in May, 2013. We did not want to stay in a big city but wanted to experience French life in a village. At the end of our stay we were a little sad to be leaving. The Barn was extremely well appointed, clean and comfortable. We loved the fresh bread deliveries each day. Frolois served our purpose as a base to travel out to various points of interest in Burgundy and Chablis, including Dijon and Baume. We enjoyed just getting lost and having the GPS bring us home. Frolois is very quiet but we enjoyed the walks up the hill to Frolois-le-Village and exploring up there. The Grange Restaurant at Flavigny was cute (and in the film Cocolat). Shopping 20-30 minutes away. Slow down, there is so much to find if you don’t rush. The owners Sharon and Gregoire are the nicest people you would want to meet.

A BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED HOUSE WITH GREAT VIEWS.

  • 5 of 5
This house has been renovated to the highest standard and well furnished and equipped. The location is quiet with lovely views from the terrace. The owners were welcoming and extremely helpful. A must is the delicious food expertly prepared by Sharon and Gregoire and brought to the barn to be enjoyed at your leisure with minimal work and no driving! Ask Gregoire to recommend a dish or ask for your favourite French food.

Quirky but enjoyable stay. As your home is a little isolated it would be a good idea to explain this in the confirmation and send us a list of local restaurants that you would be happy to make a booking at. Would not want to stay for more than one night but you were very welcoming and hospitable.

Owner's Response: I was interested to read your comments following your stay, after the very positive remarks you left in our visitors book.

I am always happy to suggest and reserve local restaurants for our visitors at The Barn, and have done previously for some clients prior to arrival. There are several establishments to chose from catering for all budgets within a 20 minute drive from the house. We leave a welcome folder in the house with detailed local restaurant and tourism information for our clients use, and also offer home cooked catering on site should it be required.

I should also like to add that The Barn is located in a small village without commerce, but the peace and tranquillity this offers is what many of our guests desire when visiting this part of Burgundy. I do hope that this (and the atrocious weather that you experienced during your stay) does not put you off visiting this region again
