About Sharon MEGRET

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

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!

Wonderful relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four staying at 'The Barn''. Oli and Emily aged 9 and 6. It was a lovely relaxing place to stay! It's immaculate throughout. If a younger family was stopping, Sharon has thought of all the small details e.g.. safety catches on fridge, stools for children in the bath room and other handy equipment. Plenty of games and books for them to play with. A big bonus was when the offer of a paddling pool was blown up by Grégoire! Really appreciated!

We enjoyed discovering Flagnivy, which we visited a few times. Beautiful village! We went to Abbaye de Fontenay and Dijon, both very interesting.There's a great app for Dijon, that shows you different tours on foot and gives you details at each spot of where you are. We discovered 'The Owl Trail'. The children loved following the brass owl triangles on the floor for the trail!

We went to the source of The Seine to discover where the mighty river starts! Which is amazing showing photos of it in Paris to Oli and Em.

Nearby Darcy we had a lovely wooded walk and picnic. Went paddling and discovering a cave.

The offer of croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes delivered fresh every morning was a delight! Oli and Em eagerly awaited for the basket on the windowsill! We had freshly baked pizzas baked fresh to order by Sharon when we came back from Dijon, really tasty! Lots of other food was offered.

Last but not least, Ned and Noodles!! The lovely kittens that Oli and Emily befriended! Certainly kept them entertained in the garden! They are still mentioned when we came home to the UK! A thoroughly enjoyable stay, so relaxing!

Wishing you all the best Sharon and family!

Outstanding location and house and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many HomeAway properties in the US and Europe, but this one topped them all. The house (The Barn) is excellent with everything needed in a very pretty old, but very modernized, building -- from a very well equipped kitchen to a nice patio and outdoor gas grill to very comfortable bedrooms. We had 2 couples for much of our stay and the setup was great with 2 ensuite bedrooms (there's a 3rd bedroom and another bathroom, but we did not have a need for that). It is located in a very small village with nice views across a valley and is very quiet. The owners have solved the issue of there being no restaurants in the village by offering homemade meals from a rather extensive menu of starters, mains (full meals or light ones), desserts/puddings and breads. These can be ordered with only 1 day notice and are delivered to your door from the owner's house next door. An incredible luxury that we took advantage of several times during our 2 week stay, including the evening of our rather late arrival. The food was always excellent (prices were also very reasonable), probably since the owners are trained chefs. We used the house as a base to explore much of Burgundy since most places are in very reasonable driving range. The owners, Sharon and her husband (sorry, can't remember his name) are perfect hosts. They were always very friendly but also ensured that they were in no way obtrusive. Simply put -- you can't go wrong if you stay at "The Barn".

Glorious!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the charming Barn in Frolois! The property is even better than described--clean, comfortable, bright and accommodating, with lovely views of the countryside and an adjacent, ancient village to explore. We woke to the sounds of birds and farm animals in the morning. Sharon is a wonderful hostess, providing delicious meals and croissants if requested, as well as useful tips for exploring the area. I was especially grateful for the use of her road atlas, as we ventured out to see the Abbaye de Fontenay, Vezelay, Dijon, Beaune and many other small villages. This is a wonderful part of the world, and the Barn is a perfect place to begin exploring! Merci, Sharon!

Meticulously restored ancient Barn

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely comfortable place.

Sharon and her husband Grégoire and the 2 girls welcomed we four from New Zealand,with open arms and could not be more genial hosts.Everything we wished for was there and we really enjoyed our stay.Wandering in the quiet lanes,visiting the city or searching for,and swimming in the local waterways, were all enjoyable.Anyone who stays there must try Sharon's delicious cuisine.When we came home late after a long day in the heat we just had to sit back and it arrived...Boeuf bourgignonne was our choice.

You have to see their two kittens...Lucy's babies!!! ......also the many small lizards basking in the heat of the stone cottage.

They have 2 other properties nearby and I imagine they will be just as good.

We wish the family all the very best and would thoroughly

recommend their hospitality.

Owner's Response: I am not sure how many lizards will be left once the kittens are allowed outside to explore! The hot weather bought them all out to bask in the warmth. Many thanks for the kind review of The Barn. Comments like yours help to reassure future guests to make the right choice when selecting a property from the many available on this website. We wish you a safe return to NZ. Tell the islands about us!

Lovely gite in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Barn. It has been painstakingly converted into a beautifully-designed, spacious 3-bedroom living area with all the modern amenities you could need. The availability of British satellite TV is quite nice if you want to wind down before bed, and the WiFi works very well both indoors and out in the garden - enough to stream video to a laptop or tablet quite happily, which we plugged into the TV via an HDMI cable.

It offers absolutely stunning views of the surrounding fields and valleys in the beautiful Cot d'Or region. Waking up to that, and sitting on the terrace having breakfast whilst taking in these views is quite a treat and an extremely welcome change from the usual busy lifestyle back home in England! At night, there is zero noise and zero light. Perfect for a tranquil night's sleep and a wonderful place for a relaxing retreat in the French countryside. We were blessed with lovely hot weather, and yet the thick walls of the building mean it stays remarkably cool inside.

The owners live next door and are extremely helpful. They have a wide knowledge of the area and can always give ideas of things to see and do, as well as help with bookings. There are many beautiful towns, villages, vineyards, and chateaus, and Dijon is always worth a visit for both the historic centre, and the shopping!
