Overview of The Little Barn

What Oliver loves…

  • The simple and homely charm of this lovely converted barn and its lovely village setting
  • The friendly owners are nearly always available to assist in providing information on all the local attractions, and arrange private wine tastings nearby.
  • The owners can arrange extra services such as fresh bread and pastry delivery, home cooked meals and a shopping service.
  • Much thought has gone into providing useful equipment and essentials for children too

What you should know…

  • Car hire is recommended for access to the nearest villages and towns for shopping and dining out.

This delightful converted barn offers comfort and tranquillity in the small village of Frolois, in the heart of the Côte d’Or countryside making it a perfect base for discovering Burgundy.

A sister property, The Little House is approximately 1km away and the two may be booked together for larger groups.

The Little Barn is a light, bright property over two levels, which has been renovated and furnished to the owner’s high standards with plenty of personal and homely touches.

Outside there is wooden decking terrace with dining for 6 and a barbecue as well as a lower garden terrace with sun loungers from where you can enjoy the views of the village below and the peace and quiet of village life, interrupted only by the occasional car or tractor passing the house.

The friendly owners live discretely in the house next door and are nearly always available to assist in providing information on all the local attractions and arrange private wine tastings nearby. They can also arrange extra services such as a shopping service to make your arrival pain free, fresh bread and pastry delivery as well as home-cooked meals and bespoke menus (please enquire regarding details and prices for additional services).

The Little Barn is a perfect base for exploring the region: this beautiful part of Burgundy has several historical sites, stunning landscapes, lively local markets and of course, wine tasting opportunities all just a short drive away.

The Region

Renowned throughout the world for its venerable wines, Burgundy is an essential destination for those who appreciate the finer aspects of the winemaker’s art. This is a region where you can visit some of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in the world and taste wines that are regularly regarded as the best France has to offer (which is saying something). As one of the richest regions of France for hundreds of years, Burgundy also offers a wealth of history and culture as well as beautiful landscapes that offer the adventurous visitor plenty of stuff to do, even if it’s just a walk to admire the scenery. If you’re booking one of our fantastic villas and chateaux in Burgundy, you’ll want to read this fantastic Burgundy travel guide to find all the best things to do, see, eat and drink.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
