    Great thank you to Anne & John for a wonderful stay at The Barn in Vijon. Exactly as advertised and we can only echo the other reviews: spacious, well equipped and very homely lodging set in typical french serene and quiet rural environment offering beautiful views. Especially sunrise and night skies were majestic. The stocked fridge (with homemade jam, fresh raspberries, wine, fresh bread and croissants amongst others) and already burning fireplace on arrival made for a very warm welcome indeed. We were very lucky with the weather but are convinced that even with poor weather we would have completely relaxed as well.

    Comment from John Thomson

    WOW! Thank you so much for your very kind comments. We're so pleased that you had such a good stay and we are so glad that you liked our accommodation. Receiving comments such as yours makes the effort we put in to preparing the Gite, and welcoming our guests, all worthwhile.

    Thank you Anne and John for welcoming us into your home/Barn. Your hospitality has been exceptional. The welcome pack and fresh produce from the garden has been gratefully appreciated. The Barn is extremely comfy and simply stunning. Beautiful location - would definitely recommend. What a relaxed holiday we have had, helped of course by the weather. We have completely chilled out, which was just what we needed. It was nice to catch up and go down memory lane. We will be sad to leave. Thank you again.
