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!

The Barn

  • 5 of 5

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.

A delightful return visit

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: A & C, it was great to have you back! Hopefully we will see you again in a Burgundy hideaway, for more chit-chat and book discussions. Always a pleasure to cater for you. See you again soon.

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.
